Job Description

This is a project for a mid-west university.

There are 10 total small scripts to be read. Total talk time is 3.5 minutes. Total word count 450.

Five - 30 second spots
Four - 15 second spots
One - 10 second spot

The video voiceovers are to be dual-purposed for both video and audio, but some additional reads or text adjustments may be required to adjust for the audio-only format.

Additionally, there may be multiple reads for different closing-line options. In short, some flexibility may be required.

The audience is 15-20 y/olds and, secondarily, their parents.

The read is to be bold, tough, determined, but likable, educated, smart. This is to attract a young audience to a University that is gritty, hands-on, all about hard work and determination leading to success. Truly an academic university, not a trade-school, but one that recognizes that achievement is born in effort and sweat.

The read is to accurately reflect the sentiment described here:

"At Oakland University, we are a dark horse of unfailing determination, charging and achieving on a national and international playing field. With strength of values and an enduring foundation, we consistently deliver on promises made through premiere programs and a continual quest for new opportunities. We never give up and we do not compromise. We will always compete for preeminence because we believe in the excellence of our academic experience to grow students and empower their highest achievement."

Likely looking for a male voice, sounding 18-25 y/o. Women may certainly apply, but the choice is most likely to be a male. There is a possibility the job will be split if a female voice fits.

Only interested in high quality recording.

The final voiceover will be accompanied by strong music with a beat, and heavy pauses. Does not need to stretch to a full 30 seconds. Any timing in the 20's will work.
