Contest 2011.03.04-2011.03.11

Contest Title:

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

Director's Notes:

Imagine that you see a posting for an audition. It reads: "We are casting a new voice-actor to become the voice of our popular series of inspirational audiobooks. If interested, please submit an audition of the script below. The most important element we are looking for is a natural, conversational, and believable tone. Like a friend who can empathize with you, and bring you to a happier place. We don't want the read to be cheesy. Please slate you name, the date, and the script title before your audition. Thank you.

Script:

One of my favorite posters says, "Life is a test. It is only a test. Had this been a real life, you would have been instructed where to go and what to do." Whenever I think of this humorous bit of wisdom, it reminds me to not take my life so seriously. And in the next hour, I'll help you learn how to not take your life so seriously as well.

Remember to check Archived Contests next Friday to learn who won, with explanations of why they won and why others didn’t, and hear some examples of each.
