Job Description

I am producing a short (60 seconds) video for the website www.FarmOn.com that is intended to motivate and inspire farmers who love what they do to be proud of their profession. It is like a call to arms, especially targeted towards younger farmers in Canada and the U.S.

The word count is about 200 words and we would like this to be completed as soon as possible. As far as voice style and rhythm goes, we're looking for something very similar to the voice over in the Molsen Canadian beer commercial called "Made in Canada":

The music, video clips and theme of that video are also very similar to what we're trying to create for our video. The video will be posted on www.FarmOn.com and spread over as many social media sites as possible with the intent to make it go as viral as possible.

Here is the script:

When you think about farmers and the work they do, you may wonder “Are they crazy?”

But farming is more than a job, it’s a way of life. It’s a labour of love that tugs at our being.

Many of us were born to this calling, with deeply planted rural roots. While others, well, they must be adventure seekers.

Because let’s be honest, who would willingly trust their fate to Mother Nature? But risk is what sets us apart and we’ve seen the reward.

We spend time cultivating a bounty fit to feed the world, because this is OUR land.

And we were stewards of it long before being green was a cause. Because we realize someday it will be THEIR land. (think of a photo of kids here)

We rise with the sun , even though it inevitably beats us to bed. And we know we’re better people for it.

But we play like champs, all while knowing morning comes fast and we’ll get up and do it all over again.

And even though we understand the hardships, we can’t imagine our lives any different. Farming is freedom. It’s life.

I guess when you think about it, yeah, it is crazy. And we wouldn’t have it any other way!
