Project Main Details

The Bad Day 
Looking for a voice actor to play an FBI agent for this video. The video will be used to help educate convenience store clerks (and other retail businesses) about actions they can take to deescalate violence during a robbery.

Our actor will read the script in the character of an FBI agent. He's relating the story of a case that he investigated, and how the clerks actions might have saved her life. His tone is professional, educated, law enforcement, but he is telling a story.

Can be male or female. Slight regional accent is ok.

A good reference might be "Detective Harry Bosch" played by Titus Welliver in the Amazon original series, "Bosch". The script attached is a sample script. The actor who is cast will be provided with the actual script. This could become a recurring role, with multiple videos to be produced.

FBI Voice Over: (Slow read. Telling a story about a case that he investigated)
Nora Higgins worked in this post office for nineteen years. Enjoyed her work, and enjoyed being an important part of this small town. According to Miss Higgings, they were all good days - - - - - ‘cept for the one bad day.

That was the day that a kid came into her post office, put a gun in her face, and demanded all the money she had in the drawer. That could have been a real bad day.

But Miss Higgings did the right thing. She put her hands up, and didn’t look that kid in the eye. She said “yes sir”, and gave him the money in the drawer. That kid was shaking so much, scared to death himself- - - -so she let him be in control. Just bowed her head, and let him call the shots.

He ran out the door with eighty one dollars and seventy two cents. Instead of the county sheriff, that kid got himself a dozen federal agents, all looking for him. Caught him in less than three days. That was a good day for Miss Higgings. Because she played it smart on the bad day, she’ll have a lot more of those to enjoy.

(Pace picks up a bit. Straight forward read)
We’ve got zero tolerance for someone trying to hurt one of our own. You should too. If you’re confronted behind the counter, or on the street, give the robber whatever they want. Avoid eye contact, and be submissive. Nothing we have is worth your life. Following these simple tips could save your life. 
Please note that you should only use the script or your recording of it for auditioning purposes. The script is property, unless otherwise specified, of the voice seeker and it is protected by international copyright laws.
