Male Voice Narration of Short Family Film 

Every year or so my wife (a videography major) and I (a film geek) try to challenge ourselves with a silly home video project to share online. We take existing footage featuring our two very young kids and try to spin it into a certain genre or theme. The last one we did was nothing but time lapses, and the one before that was a fake cliched movie trailer. Re-reading this paragraph, it all sounds very hokey. But we try to make them skirt the line between "hey-that's-cool" and "in-twenty-years-our-kids-will-be-utterly-embarrassed."

Anyway, this latest project is the first time we've really scripted anything out. We want it to be a nod to the oddly somber tone of the narration in the movie "The Assassination of Jesse James," but warped into the mind of a 5 month-old.

Here's a sample of that narration we hope to have emulated:


Obviously, it doesn't have to be a spot-on match of that style, but we wrote it to fit that sort of cadence and dryness in the voice. The only important thing is that the readings is relatively slow and paced, a little dry, and not arching up and down in pitch too often.

I'm not sure if this is peanuts or not, but we are willing to offer $75 for the work. Other than fitting the style we're after, we only ask that the final product is performed on a fairly professional-sounding setup.

Script Details

Please submit short sample. 
One of the nurses had called it a 'stork bite.' A salmon-colored splotch on the nape of his neck. The result of the fabled stork delivering him into the loving arms of his anxious parents. And given that it appeared brighter when he was stressed or upset, the patch would someday be a fitting permanent reminder that he was once small enough to be held.

But he had little use for such trivialities. He shrugged off the birthmark like most things. Some spilled milk, a cold bath, an overflowing diaper of brown liquid excrement.
