30 min video of phrases, and sentences for a lip-reading program

We're developing a new site for helping people learn how to lipread. One part of the instruction material will be videos of people pronouncing words, phrases, and sentences in a clear, and well-distinguishable manner.

To record these videos, we're looking for a native english male actor (aged 30-50) with a hi-def camera to record a 30 minute video of reading sentences, and phrases.

Video recording instructions:

-The video should record your face, and top of the shoulders *only*; please see attached image for approximate positioning of head in the video

-Background: plain single color

-Lips clearly visible

-Artificial light, consistent across the whole shot, illuminating the face

I strongly recommend pulling the curtains, and having a consistent light source while shooting the video -we need the light for the first words to be consistent with the last ones.

-Use a teleprompter, or make sure you're looking at the camera for the whole time

-No glasses, or other reflections from light source


-We need the audio as well, preferably in high quality

-Please make sure there are no background noises in the recording

General pacing:

-Speak in normal conversational tone

-Take 1 second between each word / sentence (this is for video cutting purposes); make sure to do a full closed lips - talking - closed lips cycle for every sample

Deliverables are a single, high-quality video in .mp4 format, uploaded as attachments.

To bid, please create, and upload a short video confirming the above instructions, with the following text:

"Hi! My name is [your name], and I would like to teach lip-reading!"

Script will be given after successful bidders are selected.

Many thanks for your bids in advance!
