Job Description

We are developing a short powerful video to help recruit volunteers for an in-school program designed to help high school scholar athletes perform both academically and athletically.

The video will be shown at recruiting events, in schools and online. The target audience is made up of young women and men ages 21-25. It may expand beyond that, but this is the core age.

The chosen voice over talent should be able to connect to that age group well.

The total length of the video will be between fifty to sixty seconds.

The feel of the video will be uplifting (not sappy), motivational, and inspiring. The music has a sound similar to a slowly building song like U2. Two thirds of the way through, at about :35 seconds into the video it takes off.

The sound we're going for is real, natural, conversational but it has to have a slight edge. This might come from the meaning or power of the idea. Note: it should not be booming and big. That said, there should be a feeling of building. The "sounds like" key words do not sufficiently capture the sound we're going for.

Note: we selected Young Adult for the age range. The age range of the voice should really be 25 - 35.

I have recorded a scratch track from an earlier version of the script with music. Please ignore the sound quality & EQ. I recorded it quickly in an open office. I would say that my delivery is a little too light (not too far off, though), but there is a rhythm we're going for and I think my read gives you a sense of what we're going for. I happen to be a voice talent too and while I did it quickly, it hits the key elements. When you read the script, you should see the intent and our focus on "we" and "they" or "them." We do our part, so they can do theirs.... etc...

We would appreciate an audition by Friday at 10AM. The goal is to record no later than Tuesday of next week. We have a budget that goes up to $300.00. That would include a short pick up session if needed.

Thank you for your interest and audition!
