We are running a bootstrapped e-Publishing company. Our mission is simple: to create the best educational content to the people who need it and help change their lives. We are you looking for an actress who can narrate these technical courses on software/IT. We publish content on the topics which are latest and greatest technologies in IT/software sector.
The topics are very dry and complex. Since there is no direct interaction with the instructor – the learner can often become quite disengaged. We need someone to bring some energy and excitement into the videos and voice over for these courses.
For these courses – only the intro video need talking head video. Typically there are 3-5 modules in one course and each intro video is about 5 minutes. Apart from that we also do a promo video for each course – which is another 6-7 minutes.
The rest of the course is audio only – because we show practical exercise or demos on the screen while voiceover is being played in the background.
So in total for each course, we need:
30-35 minutes of talking head video
And about 3.5 hours to 4 hours of audio.
