Candle video 
This voiceover will be used in a short 2+ minute internet only promotional video for a startup candle company. The sample below is an excerpt from the script. NOTE: I will accept auditions that are not reading from the excerpt.

Voiceover artist must be able to deliver a polished, professional and finished product. I can edit spacing, breathing, etc., but the sound quality adjustments need to be completed by you. Your demos should show this type of quality. I understand this takes extra time and will expect the bids to reflect that.

Obviously the primary reason for the video is to interest the viewer in the company and sell candles. The owner is a young female (early twenties) and the voice needs to represent this.

Emotions: Sincere, professional, uplifting, and dramatic (the selling point is that these candles are like nothing else on the market because the company is giving back by planting a tree for every candle sold)

Voice: Warm authority (able to sell but not feel like you are selling), youthful, upbeat, smooth, somewhat deep & textured, hint of whimsical (but not overdone)

You are representing the owner, who is a fun, loving and hip young adult female with huge aspirations. You are telling her story and trying to get people interested in her business.

For instance, let's take the first sentence in the audition script ("Let's begin with something small, and as we branch out, our dreams of planting thousands of trees will become a reality.") In the video, the viewer will see a seedling, then a shot looking up through a large oak tree with the suns rays blasting through. Finally, the viewer will see a huge forest of giant trees. So, the voiceover should have some flare and drama, but not seem like they are trying to sell the viewer.

Let’s begin with something small, and as we branch out, our dream of planting thousands of trees will become a reality. The more candles sold, the bigger difference we can make and the more this idea will spread. In the meantime, you can enjoy some awesome candles that have quite [EMPHASIS] the story behind them.
