Job Description

Casting for a male narrative with a masculine tone to can convey a story about Houston's economic development. The idea of the script is to take CEOs and site selectors on a regional tour of Houston. The video will highlight Houston's crown jewels, industry growth and quality of life. The total script is about 10 pages and goes into quite a bit of detail.

Though we want a powerful voice, it also needs to be warm, friendly and inviting...having a prideful spirit about Houston.

The client very much liked the gritty tone of Dick Everesti who recorded their why Houston video. See sample below.

They are also open to alternate reads. I think something of a young and progressive tone might work too. They are really pushing innovation and technology. Maybe something along the lines of great tech company commercials. Powerful and a bit matter of fact but still warm and not quirky.
