Voiceover Artist CoordinatorBookmark This
The Freeform Radio Initiative
DescriptionToday, imprisonment and incarceration have become a fundamental component of popular culture. The voices of prisoners today are being commandeered by corporate media. National Geographic and MSNBC, among others, have decided that American prisons are fascinating. Even TV chef Gordon Ramsay released a new reality show in which he teaches prisoners how to cook. Incarcerated Voices provides prisoners an unfiltered voice that examines the reality of the American penal system.
Incarcerated Voices is an exploration into the circumstances and conditions of incarceration through the eyes, ears, and hearts of prisoners. We seek to foster insight into the prisoner's responses to broaden the general public's understanding of the prison population today. The intent is to give a voice to the voiceless.
ResponsibilitiesThe internship primarily will focus on recruiting volunteer voiceover artists in the Greater Chicagoland area and scheduling studio time for the selected volunteers. The voiceover artists the candidate recruits will be reading submissions sent by incarcerated people in state and federal prisons to Incarcerated Voices.
Requirements- Must be located in the Greater Chicagoland area;
- Must be an undergraduate sophomore, junior or senior (or graduate student) majoring in radio, mass communications, audio engineering, multimedia, broadcasting, communications, or a related field.
