Job Description

Short web promo for an NGO providing disaster relief and education throughout the developing world. Word & Deed has been developing its Business Group program for several years and is hoping to raise awareness through this short promo explaining the program and the opportunities it affords.
The audience is business owners throughout North America.

We are aiming for the read to be between 1:40 and 2:00. The VO will be over music, so the vocal rhythms should not clash with the rhythm of this piece. You can listen (and download a watermarked mp3) of this piece here: http://www.premiumbeat.com/royalty_free_music/songs/the-days-go-by

- tone should be positive, but subtly so. Not light-hearted. Visionary, looking toward a better day, but not sunshiny, or happy-happy. There are still real challenges and much suffering in this world. Word & Deed is working hard to alleviate that suffering. Their mission is a serious, life-and-death mission. Tone should reflect that. But not dour or depressing. A mature and reflective positivity.
- Tone should shift subtly throughout the script. For example: Opening lines of hurricane devastation should be solemn, but quickly open up as relief comes and the future brightens.
- Despite warnings against too much sunshine in the performance, we do want the audience to see the awesome opportunity presented by Business Groups and be excited about joining one. Mature and reflective positivity.
