Project Main Details

Pastor Retirement Tribute Video 
I'm producing a brief, 15-minute slideshow for a church banquet honoring the 50-year ministry for our pastor and his wife. The script covers their school years, meeting & marriage, early career, book and publications, and their family growth. It needs nothing dramatic, just a quality, everyday sort of voice that provides excitement to the story, without drawing attention to itself. The video will be nice, but not broadcast quality, so it may be possible for the voice over to be "too" good.

The script is 8 pages, however, it contains 30 quotes from old friends and relatives which have already been recorded. These will be added in the final edit. In my own reading, it took just over 8 minutes to read the script, though I may have read too fast, so a professional may take as long as 10 (perhaps).

All I need is a raw file in a quality digital format via email or FTP. The talent will not need to do any postproduction editing or music mixing (beyond pulling out his bad "takes").

The project needs to be finished Friday night, so I really need same-day turnaround, COB Thursday.

I'm in a bind, as my original voice talent ended up sounding like Tom Brokaw---nice, but too newsy for my purpose. My deadline is fast approaching.

This project is for a Christian church. While the voiceover talent in no way has to be a Christian, I've found that someone unfamiliar with the "lingo" can have a hard time knowing what to emphasize in sentences or phrases, so a familiarity is pretty necessary.

I've never done anything like this before, so my request may be utterly unreasonable, but I thought I'd give it a try.

Custom demo is not required but if you would like to send us a portion of the script provided below, it will be highly appreciated.

Many thanks for your consideration,
