Job Description

Voice over for the Fireflies PSA, nonprofit that sponsors a charity bicycle tour every year during Cannes. The VO will play over footage from the 1955 Tour de France.

Voice should be old, experienced, think Herzog's VOs. Or a bit more grizzled would also be good. I'd like someone with a French, Dutch, Danish, or German accent, but American accent is okay as well.

The script is 103 words, and I would need the final audio delivered to me by end-of-day (PST) on Thursday, May 20
This is a small budget PSA, but it is for a good cause and we have been giving access to amazing historical footage.

I will happily send you a copy for your reel as well, of course.

Final Audio file MUST be delivered by 05-22-10.

Script follows:

He has 400,000 kilometres in his legs. He will suffer. He knows that. In the heart of the Alps, he is arced on his bicycle, his kidneys crushed by the effort and his head, like a heavy, painful balance, oscillates above his handlebars. The sun beats down on him. Around him, the whole mountain smokes like a giant witch's cauldron. As he breathes, what burns his throat and his lungs is the dust that rises around him. Abandoned, alone, without help, streaming with sweat, he has no other weapon against his adversaries but the mountain, the bad weather and his own crazy willpower.

Note from It is recommended that you protect all your audition work by watermarking the submission or only recording a portion of the script provided by the client. This will render your audition file useless for anything other than reviewing your voice. Not sure what watermarking is? Please visit our FAQ section for more information.
