Project Main Details

Early Bird 
We are looking to cast both the "dad" role (definitely a senior male) and also the "man" role (this could be a senior man but also could be a middle-aged man). Talent MUST BE NON-UNION and agree to a buyout, so that the end-user is free to use this spot in whatever cycles and markets they choose. Because of this buyout, we are offering $250 per role, plus studio charges if they are incurred by the talent for a studio outside of the talent's personal studio. We will probably be recording September 3 or 4 and will call to arrange the session. We definitely need to be able to direct the talent while they're recording. If anyone wants to read for "VO" that is the grown son of the senior man. We have someone local we think will be good, but are not opposed to listening to other people as well. We have "VO2" for the end of the spot locally. ALL READS SHOULD SOUND VERY NATURAL and not "caricature-like" or an "over-the-top" character.

Script Details

Full script:


VO: Dad’s always been an early bird, anxious to get a head start on the day. I was never sure if that was because he loved the morning or because he always had so much to do....working, taking care of our family, the house, the yard.

Man1: It’s 6 AM. That’s late for you!

Dad: Thought I’d sleep in a bit today. (Chuckling)

VO: We knew things would change when Dad moved to an Erickson community. And now he’s able to do the things he’s always enjoyed but never had time for. Since he moved in, Dad met a group of guys who restore and fly old army planes. He even got his pilot’s license! It’s just another example of how Erickson has changed his life…for the better.


Man1: You’re clear for takeoff.

Dad: See you back on the ground in a bit!

VO: Dad says he chose Erickson for the energizing atmosphere and financial security. But I’m glad the maintenance-free lifestyle gives him time for the things he loves to do. Moving to Erickson was a great decision … and it’s obvious on mornings just like this.

(Sound of plane buzzing through the air; fade out)
