Project Main Details

ESPN Top of the Class 30 second TV spot 

We are looking for a male, urban-sounding VO artist that can convey a cool and slick feel that will accompany a fast-paced quickly cut TV spot featuring NBA stars before they were famous. It should feel very hip-hop but not to the point that it comes across as illiterate or inaudible. A deeper voice might give it the mystique it needs to feel "street" but is not mandatory. Our client has mentioned Yo! MTV Raps as the style that he is looking for from back in the day, but again remember this will be a product driven sell so it has to sound professional even though it will almost certainly need to sound urban.

Please make sure reads do not exceed :30. If timing is tight, feel free to speed up your auditions accordingly. Cool, slick, powerful and gritty will get the job done!
