Project: narrators for true crime video podcast

We do true crime and true encounters with the strange. These are SCRIPTED video presentations.

We're looking to add narrators and writers to our core group.

The main host needs regular fill-in hosts. If you enjoy doing this, we plan to have a couple of scripts a month for you. If you have a good personality for video presentations, the job is easy! You'll record the video in your own home on your own time. We'll show you a free teleprompter link. So all you need is a decent mic and a laptop. Green screen is a plus, but not essential.

You'll get "hosted by" credit and IMDB. You can also take the opportunity to pitch yourself or your work.

The scripts are usually around 4000 to 5000 words. This should be a half to an hour's work. We edit out mistakes, so you just have to have fun and read. 

If you are familiar with Mr. Ballen's channel, this is a perfect example of the type of storytelling we want and the style of video presentation. 

 

 

Three things are needed for a great story: an engaging storyteller, an audience, and of course the story.

The storyteller: A good storyteller is animated, brings energy, looks the audience in the eye and says "come with me on this journey". 

The audience is a critical part of the equation. In a live setting, the storyteller can sense the audience's attention drifting away, and adjusts her story to recapture it. This adjusting shows how the vital interaction between the storyteller and the audience shapes the story itself. With a youtube channel, that feedback is limted to comments below. But a good storyteller can still imagine that audience and create the sense of interaction. A wry small or perfectly placed inflection. The storyteller instinctively understands the audience interaction and gets better at this over time. It's a crucial skill for stand-up comics, educators, actors and boardroom executives. 

The story itself is where the all-important but seldom appreciated writing comes in. We want a small team to work together, growing in their skill at crafting stories that hook an audience and hold it.
