Project Main Details

Introduction for online Sailing Course 
This project is for TWO versions of a 2 - 3 minute "infomercial" that
is planned to communicate to a broad audience the beauty, majesty
and lifestyle related elements of sailing. Our goal is to generate
excitement for the sport and lifestyle that will ultimately have
listeners/viewer respond to a call to action and take the
prescribed/suggested next steps. We want the VO talent to convey excitement, confidence, fun and adventure if possible.

The pace should NOT be too slow since it needs to keep the listener's attention but not too rushed either. It is basically a pitch to sign up for the online course BUT it should not be hard sell.

**Please note that the 1st version will be generic and the main change to the second will have the addition of company's name in it.

Script Details

Please read from this excerpt of the script which includes descriptions of imagery that will correspond with the VO.
Read only where it says VOICE.
VOICE: Pursuing the endless horizon. . . Enjoying the many wonders of nature first-hand. . . Savoring solitude. . . Sensing the world with wonder. This is SAILING.

IMAGERY: Diverse footage depicting the wide world of sailing: Small sailboats slicing lines across a wide lake, decked out cruising boat on an ocean passage or navigating amongst exotic islands, dropping the hook at sunset in an Alaskan anchorage, dolphins jumping in a bow slicing through blue waves. Perhaps accompany “This is sailing” line with helicopter flyover of a large sailboat on an idyllic fast reach with crew dangling feet over the rail.

VOICE: Water covers three quarters of the surface of the earth, a vast playground for the sailor to explore. Many of the world’s most scenic destinations are only accessible from a sea or ocean, or are best enjoyed from the water. From a quiet afternoon in the middle of a lake, an overnight or a weekend with family and friends to the grand challenge of an ocean crossing, sailing offers something for everyone.

IMAGERY: Arial footage of a beautiful, dramatic coastline (Northern California comes to mind), changing to close-cropped shot of a sailboat’s rail with water streaming past, giving the sense that it could be any size of boat anywhere in the world.

VOICE: A reputable sailing school offers the education and on-the-water skills to help you realize your sailing goals and dreams. These schools transfer knowledge to you, the student, based on widely accepted standards of technical and practical skills. Through a network of professional sailing schools and instructors, these organizations make sailing safe, fun and accessible to everyone. Through them, you’ll see how the sailing lifestyle is not only thrilling, but also affordable. Their goal is to get you sailing, quickly, but with plenty of practice to ensure you do so safely and confidently.

IMAGERY: Since this is meant to be generic, NO ASA LOGO. A shot of a big white sail, as it luffs and then snaps to fill with wind, then slide off screen to reveal other boats sailing nearby. Or a shot of sailing instructors at work with students on the water.

VOICE: From the very first day you set your sails, your adventure into the world of sailing will continue to offer new and exciting routes to discover, the freedom to explore them all and lifelong learning. With widely accepted certifications in hand, you will have the sailing skills to skipper your own boat, anywhere in the world.

IMAGERY: Shots of boats med-moored outside a castle in Croatia, a sailboat mixed in with traditional Chinese junks outside Hong Kong, a fleet of Sea Pearl 21’s off a desolate Bahamian island.

VOICE: With hundreds of schools around the country and abroad, it couldn’t be easier to find a place to start sailing. Remember, your sailing certifications are only the beginning or your adventure! The lakes, seas and oceans of the world await you!

IMAGERY: Driving home the beautiful and adventurous sailing lifestyle: Someone enjoying a boat on the deck of a boat as it sails along in the sun; several people cheers with wine in the cockpit at sunset on the hook.

TEXT FADE-IN: The door to the world of sailing is open! Find a sailing school near you.
