Job Description

This is a mature male VO for a local TV commercial showing a retired man in his early 70s, a grandfather, he is sitting with his grand daughter looking at an old family photo album together, including photos of him as a young man. The VO is his voice reflecting on his life and legacy, as if he is thinking to himself. For the first two sentences the quality is warm, honest, soulful, reflective, gently wondering (not negative or too self-critical). During the last two sentences the man looks at his grand daughter with grandfatherly love, and his voice should convey his feelings of warmth, love, honest satisfaction, being at peace with his legacy. Script:

GRANDFATHER (age 70s):
You look back on a lifetime and wonder, did I make a difference?
Did I leave something of value for those who follow me?
I’d like to think that the life I’ve lived matters.
And that whatever my purpose, I fulfilled my part in it.
