Job Description

Hi there.

We're producing a video for something called the Scotiabank Pro Am For Alzheimer's In Support of Baycrest which is a charity hockey tournament where participants get to play hockey with real NHL legends. The draw to play in this is obvious which is why we've made the theme about bucket lists. However we're playing this whole whole tired bucket list theme to the fullest. The script is full of tangential humour, odd references and silly imagery (deliberately). The basic message is "you need to come here" but the script wanders a lot to get to that point.

Comic timing and deadpanning is key to this one.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When I wrote this, in my head I was hearing a corny Mickey Spillane film noir detective voice. Serious but not serious at the same time since he's spewing out joke upon joke. Here's a reference to this approach (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9tP9fI2zbE) done very well.

PLEASE NOTE: This is just an option. We're certainly interested in hearing it this way but we're open to another angle if you have one.

The one thing it needs to have is strong character. This VO person makes us want to listen. He's humorous and entertaining. The script needs it.

While this event is big in stature they are completely open to having fun with it to the point where they want something unique. It's a charity event yes, but it's a FUN charity event. There are no sacred cows here.

They approached us after they saw this video we did (https://vimeo.com/227146879) and wanted something that unique for their event. Watch it for the style of humour, not so much the actual sound of his voice. We want that same irreverent feel.

Have fun with read. I'm really looking forward to hear the interpretations. Thanks for your effort, your time and your talent.

Charlie Teljeur
