Project Main Details

Chesapeake Commercial Pitch 
This project is recording copy for three 60-second TV spots, but it is for INTERNAL PITCH PRESENATION ONLY, NOT BROADCAST.

ALSO IMPORTANT: we require any talent to be able to work from a recording facility that allows multiple phones (at least two or three) to patch in to the session, not merely conference call over speaker phone. The client wants to be able to hear the session clearly.

Need to be able to record sometime MONDAY AUGUST 15TH. We only need files of the recording session delivered, they do not have to be edited (we will do that).

These will be three 60-second commercials for Chesapeake Energy. The current phase is Pitch/Presentation. We are showing mock/temp visuals to a script we’ve written, but also trying to present as professional-looking a piece as possible, including VO.

Even though this is for internal one-time use only, we are still offering $300 for your time. If you’re chosen, and if the project is greenlit, you would also be immediately considered a possibility for the final product when it goes to actual production.

Here is direction from two of the producers:

“I would say this VO person has to have some age on them, can’t sound too young. On that same note I don't think gruff deep and old is the answer either. I think this is a nice well rounded voice, confident, but not finger pointing, kind but not passive and the most important trait is BELIEF. This person has to believe what they are saying, they have to be confident in their view and the tone. I think it is a man, and he needs to feel geographically neutral, no weird accents, this will run in the NE and Midwest.”

A clean, clear tone is key, I think. Somewhere between tenor and baritone. A vigorous, strong voice without whiskey or gruffness. Conviction in what he's saying is essential, but not in a way that preaches. We're looking to inspire by just saying the words without working too hard to oversell them.”

Thank you so much. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me back. My name is Jeff Huston. Looking forward to your auditions!

Script Details

This project is recording copy for three 60-second TV spots, but it is for INTERNAL PITCH PRESENATION ONLY, NOT BROADCAST. 
Here are the three scripts. If you have time we'd love to hear a pass at all three, but at least one full one.


There’s a special confidence that comes when you take charge of your own future.

We are.

With unemployment above 9% and our nation needing an economic lift, America’s energy sector is providing a source of renewed strength and hope.

Chesapeake Energy has launched a plan to attain energy freedom. To transform transportation by creating a Natural Gas Highway across America. To drill for more domestic natural gas and oil. And to make the first truly affordable, scalable and achievable bio-based “green gasoline.”

It creates a million high-paying jobs and can deliver freedom from OPEC oil in just 5 to 10 years.

Every dollar saved is direct American economic stimulus.
