Premise: Dia is a magic bike that’s changing the world. He believes answers are just over the hill. (because our Planet is becoming increasingly smaller)

Tone: Optimistic, unexpected, informative


This is the story of Dia, a magic bike that loves chocolate and the cocoa farmers in the tiny villages where it is grown. Dia is an eternal optimist who believes that the answers to life’s little roadblocks lie just over the next hill, and that everything will work out if you know which path to take to help find those answers. So his life’s joy is to travel the back roads and byways getting to know the world’s cocoa farmers and helping them everyway he can.

The client is thinking that a female VO would be most appropriate though they are open to hearing male reads as well.

For the woman, it would be:
Someone with a Sarah Silverman like essence. Flat but fun, sweet and playful.

For the male:
Morgan Freeman was mentioned as a place to base our reads from but I would say someone with gravitas, with knowledge and importance. Not too old but a bit a weight in their voice.

The idea of having someone with a West African or African accent is also intriguing to the client.

Script Details

***This is a sample of the video that we have up online for reference. Thanks !


VO: One fine summer day Dia, the magic bike, was riding down a country lane… perhaps a little too fast.

VO: He rounded a bend and came suddenly upon a farmer carrying his bag of cocoa beans to market.

VO: CRASH! Cocoa Beans flew everywhere.

VO: Dia said he was sorry. The farmer wiped sweat from his brow, grunted, then bent down to pick up his beans.

VO: (worried) “Now I won’t be able to make it to the market on time,” said the Farmer.

VO: As the last bean was returned to the sack, Dia got an idea-

He could help the farmer by carrying the bags of beans on his strong, sturdy frame!

VO: Dia worked up quite a sweat carrying those heavy sacks, but he was so happy to be useful.

VO. In no time at all they arrived at the market.
