Wanted: Opera Mini Voice-Overs
Tuesday, February 5, 2008 10:56:18 AM
So, we're looking for people around the world to be the voices of Mini in our most recent video.
It was well-received and is still being seen every week. We want to republish the same video, but with your own voice-overs in your native language, whether that's Russian, Spanish, Chinese, Polish, etc.
I Want To Translate!
Cool, send us your translated voice-overs (correctly timed to the video) and we'll choose the best ones to publish. The video in different languages will be featured here and on video sharing sites around the Web. If there are multiple voice-overs submitted for any given language, we'll choose our favorite to be featured (one voice-over per language).
Rules and T-Shirts
Everyone who sends in a featured voice-over will receive an Opera t-shirt.
The deadline for this project (to be eligible for a t-shirt) is February 18th.
Submissions have to be sent by email.
In addition to the audio file, please send us your translated script as well. To make things easier, here's the original script in English.
Note: For quality control purposes, we reserve the right not to feature a submitted voice-over, even if it's the only voice-over submitted in a particular language.
16 to 24-bit, 44.1 to 48khz AIF is the best full audio format for universal import into editing programs. These files should be around 25mb for a 3-minute track.
However, an MP3 is a scaled-down version of an audio file and is only about 3-5mb for a 3-minute track. To avoid huge e-mails, please send us MP3s, but keep a copy of your higher quality audio files in case we decide we want to use your voice-over.
