Job Description

VOICE REFERENCE:

Accent Preference:
I think what I'm going for is something British. I'm not sure how to describe it, please see the video link above for reference.


Project:
Factory Farming PSA for takepart.com

Project's Motivation/Assignment:
For my PSA assignment I'm looking at the food industry, and in this episode - the negative sides to chicken factory farming. Normal PSAs are heart wrenching or horrific, but how many people actually respond to that after the commercial is over? My solution is to make a spot that is more humorous and entertaining. The narrator is cheerful and engaging, talking directly to the main character, guiding him in his efforts to start his own chicken farm.

The art direction and narration both have a cheerful and endearing quality.
The words and content however are serious and twisted, to which only the main character seems to take note of.

Audience:
Internet / ACCD campus

Art Direction:
Stop motion. If you're curious, see these test videos:

Length: 60sec (45 sec of VO)

This casting is mainly for the Enthusiastic Narrator, but please still read the endtag Deadpan. Voice will be picked based on the qualities of the Enthusiastic reading, and not the deadpan reading.


Many thanks, hope to hear from you soon! =)
