For Clients Looking for Voice Over Script Examples for a Comedy Movie Trailer

The scripts include specifications like voice age, gender, target market, artistic direction, accent, etc., much like voice over job postings on Voices.com. So, if you’re looking for a voice actor, the next time you post a job on Voices.com, you’ll have an idea of how to format your job posting in order to get the best auditions back. This formatting helps voice actors to better understand the vision you have for your project, and bring it to life in their read.

For Voice Actors Looking for Voice Over Practice Scripts

Feel free to use these scripts for practice reads and demos! Keep in mind that, when auditioning for jobs, it is recommended to only provide a small portion of the read. For example, a 5 to 7-second read of a 15-second script will suffice for your audition.

Client:

Parked: The Movie

Voice Age:

Young Adult

Gender:

Male

Job description:

‘Parked’ is a full-length feature about a squirrely, skinny and shy 30-year-old guy, MacKenzie Woodcock, who works in Northern Ontario at one of the biggest national parks in Canada. 

Mac doesn’t talk much, and he doesn’t get to talk to many people either. His job is to canoe into the most remote campsites, clean them up and get them ready for the next group of portagers. 

Mac’s quiet, simple and low-key life gets complicated during a night out at the only restaurant in the area, a rustic Polish tavern called the Kashub Korner. Mac meets a waitress, Selena Pecarski, who miraculously becomes the first girl to ever fall for Mac Woodcock.

And Mac’s head-over-heels too. The only issue? According to his dad, Tim, she could actually be long-lost cousin, but it’s unclear whether the historic link in question, a fur trapper named Bill Hernan, was actually a mutual relation, or just a mysterious force between their two families. 

‘Parked’ is a story of a dude going on a wild goose chase to dig up old family history to discover whether or not he’s related to the only girl who’s ever loved him.

Art Direction:

‘Parked’ is an awkward, bumbling comedy and we need a voice that can really personify the off-kilter humor in this movie. Ideally, the voice will be a little odd-sounding and have unique pacing to add to the quirky nature of this movie. 

We’re looking for a young male who can do a classic rural Canadian accent, without sounding like a caricature.

1-Minute Comedy Movie Trailer Sample Script:

[Shot of Mac canoeing in the middle of a lake towards a campsite that he has to clean during a rainy, grey day.]

“Life’s always been a bit…well…dull, for MacKenzie Woodcock.”  

[Shot of Mac picking up garbage with a stick around an empty campsite.]

“Campsite after campsite, day after day, just cleaning up people’s messes, with no one around to talk to.”

[Shot of Mac pretending the stick with garbage on the end of it, is a guitar.]

“Sure, he used to play bass in a band in high school. But that was 13 years ago.”

[Shot of Mac changing the toilet paper roll and cleaning the toilet lid in a rough-looking outhouse.]

“He’s been working up north at Almonte National Park for over 10 years, eating suspicious looking berries and counting moose sightings.”

[Shot of Mac pretending to perform like an opera singer while he hoses down the outhouse.]

“It’s safe to say the world has most certainly forgotten about Mac Woodcock. Or maybe he’s forgotten about the world.”

[Shot of Mac putting his canoe and paddle into a shed. And his manager waving to him from his office inside the main park building.]

“I mean his manager even has a bet going with Richard, the park’s handyman, that Mac will lose all his beautiful hair before he meets a woman.”

[Shot of Mac ordering food at the Kashub Korner, smiling and talking with the waitress, Selena.]

“But that all changed after he met Selena, the first girl to actually fall for this guy. Too bad Mac’s dad says that a mysterious figure from the past just may be a mutual relation. 

“Wait? She might be his cousin? Come on, that can’t be true.”

[Shot of Mac rifling through old family papers and documents in an old musty attic.]

“From the guys who brought you ‘Ronny Rocks Detroit’ and ‘Brussels Sprouts’, ‘Parked’ is a story about one guy finding out how a 300-year-old fur trapper connects him to the love of his life. Coming to theatres, July 2019.”

[Big aerial shot of northern Ontario, highlighting trees, rolling hills, rivers and lakes.]

“From the guys who brought you ‘The Geneva Flame’ and ‘The Beauty In All Of Us’, comes a love story about a dude and a beautiful, intelligent woman who just might be his long-lost cousin…Wait, what?”

[Shot of Mac loading up a canoe and waving to people at Almonte National Park. They return his waves with dirty looks.]

“Meet MacKenzie Woodcock. A 30-year-old skinny, ponytail wearing, campsite cleaning, shy-guy, who’s forgotten about how to interact with the outside world and even how to comb his own hair.”

[Shot of Mac inside the Kashub Korner eating perogies and staring at the waitress Selena, and her smiling back at him.]

“But Mac’s life changes when the girl of his dreams, Selena, falls for him. And when Mac’s dad says that they could be related, well, that’s when things get real dicey.”

[Shot of Mac running from a moose down a dirt road in the middle of the forest.]

“‘Parked’ is coming to theatres this July.”

15-Second Comedy Movie Trailer Sample Script:

[Shot of Mac running through the forest and jumping off a big rock into a lake with a full backpack on. The camera shows an open bag of chips and a bunch of other personal items coming to the surface of the lake. Mac grabs the bag of chips and starts eating some of the soggy, water-soaked potato chips.]

“This is MacKenzie Woodcock.”

[Camera switches to a close-up shot of Mac’s face as he munches and the soggy chips. His face and beard are littered with crumbs.]

“Mac was just chased out of town by the father of the girl he’s in love with, because, well, there’s something questionable about their love. The question is, could she be his long lost cousin? 

[Extra close-up shot of Mac’s mouth still chewing on soggy chips.]

“Which brings us here. At the start of Mac’s journey to uncovering a 300-year-old truth.

[Wide shot of Mac in the middle of the lake, with random personal objects floating around him. You can still hear him chewing the chips.]

“‘Parked’, coming this July.”
