Project Main Details

This House is a Home  
This VO is for 3 short animated videos to be played during several week long service projects through out the USA.

The voice needs to be inspirational and timeless.

The VO character IS the House.

Here is a brief synopsis of all three episodes.

Part 1: Born into Hope

Synopsis: The story of the home from its dilapidation and rebirth during the first great depression.

The video opens with a Grapes of Wrath moment; a bull-dozer levels the existing farmhouse, a field is sown over the remains, a family of ground hogs lives there, and then a family comes and builds a home on the old foundation.

The last event is a baby being born to the couple who lives there.

Part 2: Built into Family

Synopsis: The baby that was born grows to be an elderly widower in the home and is forced to sell it.

Over the course of several decades we watch the old man’s family grow up and leave, his wife pass away, and in the end the home falls into disrepair as an entire neighborhood is built around it. The neighborhood from Gran Torino comes to mind.

Part 3: To Bring Hope to the World

Synopsis: The old man dies and the home is sold to several families who take less and less care of it until finally a slum lord has some renters who take great care of the home and return it to it’s former beauty.

There is a revolving door of owners until a young family of Hispanics or Asians(not white and not black) comes into the home and starts to care for it again. The neighborhood is changing. The house remembers all the people who have come and gone through it’s doors, that even though bankers may call it a toxic asset, and a slum lord do the bare minimum to keep it in working order, the house knows better. The house knows it is a home.

Script Details

***Something Inspirational and Timeless - This VO Character is the House 
What once had been the old McCullough homestead was becoming a metropolis. Amidst it all John Everhart grew up, and married. His parents aged as the house did, and like all things of this world… John’s mother grew sick and returned to the ground…

for dust we are and to dust we all return.

Though time and changes happen to all families and the houses they live in, the Everhart’s carried on… though the world moved on and the city was built around them, they were built into family.

The longer you live you’ll see it’s the people you’re with and how you treat them that matter.

Loving one another, that’s what it means to be built into family.
