Project Main Details

Sports Spec Spot 
We are looking for a 25 second voiceover to be used in a spec spot. We are a Chicago-based media production company that is looking to have the right kind of VO to match with a family-oriented sports promo.

We are looking for a specific "flow" to the voiceover. The opening and can be read naturally, but the middle of the VO, starting with "It's the mustard stain..." should be read with in a stream-of-conciousness style, putting some emphasis on individual words (mustard, jersey, hot dog, dad, game, tickets, brother, five rows, field). The ending should create an emotional connection with the viewer, subtly nostalgic without overtly trying to tug on the heartstrings.

We'd be interested in hearing options with a good Chicago South Side accent, but we'd rather have a strong read with a neutral midwest accent than a weak read with a good south side accent. We're looking for a warm, friendly, authentic read with an inherent energy.

Both timing and timeline are very important with this project. Your read cannot exceed 25 seconds. We will also need an efficient turnaround; we would like to have our final read no later than this coming Friday.

Should the spot get used, we will quadruple our stated rate for your read, to a total payment of $300.

Script Details

***custom demo required*** 
There's 162 White Sox games every season, 81 right here on the south side. But when you're at the Cell, it's not the close calls, or even the home runs you remember. It's the mustard stain you got on your jersey from the hot dog your dad bought you during the game when he sprung for tickets for you and your little brother five rows from the field. Because you can watch the game anywhere, but you'll never sit next to your dad and brother in row five, seat seven on that summer afternoon again.
