Museums and Heritage Highland (MHH) is seeking an experienced narrator to work us on creating an engaging and inspiring audio introduction for the Highland Pictish Trail Audio Tour App – a development within the wider Highland Pictish Trail project, currently nearing completion and supported by The Highland Council, Highlife Highland and MHH.
The Trail covers Pictish stone sites across the Highlands, together with related museum and heritage locations. The narration will cover the welcome to the trail, as well as provide an introduction to a small number (two or three) of suggested itineraries and a short guide to each of the sites along the trail – about 30 in total. The total length of the narration will be around 40-50 minutes.
A script for the narration will be provided, though the person appointed will be encouraged to suggest any changes that they feel will add to overall ambience and effectiveness of the tour.
The person appointed must have prior experience in providing similar narration or voice-over for other applications, and it would be beneficial (although not essential) if he/she can also provide recording and editing functions so as to provide a set of finished recordings that can be used within the app.
The appropriate use of music as a background or as interludes will also be welcomed.
Copyright in the finished product will rest with MHH.
If you are interested in responding, please apply with details of your relevant experience, whether you can offer sound recording/editing as part of your service, and the cost for providing the narration/recording.
