Project Main Details

Before I Die Short Essay 
I am producing a short video sales letter for my company, which helps men become more confident and successful. The introduction to the sales letter will be an adoption of an essay called "Before I Die".

I'm looking for a voice with gravity and authenticity; not just strength, but also vulnerability, and strength of conviction. I'll be using footage to take viewers on an emotional journey of a fulfilling life, and I hope that your narration will fill them with a sense of longing to achieve greatness.

Script Details

custom demo required 
This is the full script; please do a demo of the first paragraph, and the second to last (the sorrow paragraph). Thank you.


Before I die I want to know that I have done something truly great, that I have accomplished some glorious achievement. I do not want to have passed through life as just another speck of humanity, just another cog in a tremendous machine. I want to be something greater, far greater than that.

Before I die I want to know that during my life I have brought great happiness to others. Friendship, we all agree, is one of the best things in the world. We all want much happiness in our lives, and giving it to others is one of the surest ways to achieve it for ourselves.

Before I die I want to have visited a large portion of the globe. By traveling in countries other than my own I hope to broaden and improve my outlook on life so that I can get a deeper, and more complete satisfaction from living.

Before I die there is another great desire I must fulfill, and that is to have felt a truly great love. I want to feel that my whole heart and soul are set on one girl whom I wish to be a perfect angel in my eyes. I want to feel a love that will far surpass any other emotion that I have ever felt.

Before I die I want to feel a great sorrow. It is my belief that, as in the case of love, no man has lived until he has felt sorrow. It molds us and teaches us that there is a far deeper significance to life than might be supposed if one passed through this world forever happy and carefree.

As I stand here on the threshold of my future, I do not desire my life to be a bed of roses. I want it to be something much more than that.
