Job Description

Hi, how's it going?

I'm creating a motion-graphics video for a non-profit that is changing education in Los Angeles.

What I'm looking for in the voiceover is a Male, young adult, with a conversational and sincere tone. I want the narration to sound very genuine and like you're talking to a real guy who cares. The opposite of announcer-y and exaggerated.

If you saw the documentary, "Waiting for Superman", the tone of the narrator's voice in that movie is really close to what I'm looking for. Genuine, warm, conversational. This video will have a very similar tone and feel to "Waiting for Superman", especially the motion graphics parts from that movie.

The script should be around 2-3 min. of narration in total.

If you could read me a few lines from the rough draft of the script, that would be great.

Regarding direction, I would like to give you direction if possible, so let's talk about it. If you prefer to record from a home studio, maybe we can figure some way that I can give you feedback over the phone or something.

Either way, I'm a very friendly director and enjoy collaborating with actors to make sure we both end up with work we'll love. I'm really looking forward to working with you. You can check out some of my other directorial works on my website: Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!

GD Rough Script Sample:

Green Dot Public Schools: Our mission is to transform public education in Los Angeles and beyond, to make sure EVERY child can go to a good school.

We’ve spent the past 11 years starting charter schools in the highest need neighborhoods across LA, developing a model that’s cost-efficient, sustainable, replicable…and get results.

But we can’t reach all the children in all the failing schools fast enough.

So to really put our model to the test, we are focused on the toughest challenge in school reform today: Turnarounds.

With a Turnaround, instead of starting a new school with a clean slate, you bring your approach to an existing school where you must reverse bad habits and low expectations.

This is exactly what happened when Green Dot took over one of the worst performing and most dangerous high schools in Los Angeles: Locke High.
