Project Main Details

Fresh Young Adult Male Voice Without Hype 

This project is for 2 videos that'll be used online and on a DVD for a self-improvement-related information product.

May self-improvement products have an often 'vague', 'secretive', and sometimes even 'airy-fairy', 'new age' type of tone to them... which is something we don't like that much.

We're looking for a more down-to-earth delivery by a voice of a young adult 'guy next door' type of male. Other keywords:

- Conversational (!!)
- Friendly
- Relatable
- Late 20s kind of voice


Things we do NOT want in the voice:

- Too much storytelling type of narration... conversational tone is very important.

- No sales hype tone

- No epic tone (like in many movie trailers)


To give a more concrete impression of the tone we're looking for, there's a guy online doing some video editing tutorials. Obviously, it's not the content of those tutorials that's important, but the conversational, friendly tone that he has in his messages:


The second link (between 10 seconds and 35 seconds in or so) is also a nice example in the sense of the way this guy delivers 'vague' terminology in a 'down to earth', conversational way.


The stories this is for are for a self-improvement product, so obviously there are some lessons and 'morale' to them.

However, what needs to be clear is that we don't want the voice to have a know-it-all tone of some wise sage, but rather the tone of a young and hip adult male, the friendly and relatable (almost 'naive') guy next door, who just happens to have some experience and insight to share... before he's back to doing 'normal' stuff like playing rock guitar or shooting some hoops or something.



If you can, we'd like to hear a sample recording of your voice applying these instructions. We've provided a short script.


While this script lends itself well for typical storytelling and things like that, please realize that it's very important to keep the young, friendly, and conversational tone as described above!

That's also why we picked a part like this, so we can see if you can deliver this is according to the instructions described above.



Aside from the voice itself, IF POSSIBLE, we'd like some help with music and just a few sound effects as well.

This is not a requirement though, but would be a huge help.

As for sound effects, that's really not going to be much... probably just one or two or so.



After these two 'short stories', we'll probably have some other projects as well for you... both soon and in the long run.

Script Details

Sample script below provided by the voice seeker, please read a portion for auditions. 
There’s a Native American parable that tells a short story about the so-called ‘Creator’ gathering all the animals together and saying:

“I want to hide something from humans until they are ready for it… It’s the realization that they create their own reality.”

And the eagle said:

“Give it to me. I will fly it to the Moon.”

“No,” said the Creator… “One day soon they will go there and find it.”

“How about the bottom of the ocean?”, asked the salmon…

“Oh no, they will find it there too.”

“I will bury it in the great plains,” said the buffalo…

“Thanks for your input,” said the Creator, “but no… They will soon dig and find it there.”

And then the wise grandmother mole spoke up, and said:

“Put it inside them.”

And the Creator said:

“Done… That’s the last place they’ll look.”

Now I know you might be thinking:

“Nice story… but I’ve heard that a thousand times already…"
