Italian Voiceover work for AI dubbing

Papercup is an AI dubbing company that uses a human-in-the-loop model to improve the overall quality of our localisation and synthetic voices.

Papercup’s voice actors use their vocal skills and expertise to help bring life to our catalogue of synthetic voices. By identifying areas where the expressivity could be improved and recording a better version, voice actors help the AI to mimic the “shape” of their voiced segment, and in-turn develop the expressivity of the voices.

Papercup will not use your samples to replicate or clone your voice or likeness without your prior consent. The scope of this work only involves mapping your voice’s expressivity onto our own voices.

This is an ongoing role, with the expected available work of up to 20 hours per week. Papercup uses hourly payments in British Pound Sterling. Please provide your hourly rate in the quote provided.
