Project Main Details

Voiceover for short educational video 
We need a GREAT voice talent to record the voiceover for a short educational video. The overall effect is somewhere between inspirational and educational...there's a fair amount of content (total script is about 900 words) and the video will be 7-8 minutes total (some of which will be purely music and image).

Audience will likely be corporate, American, with some blue collar, and some highly educated middle managers/executives.

The tone should be friendly and non-intimidating since we're conveying new concepts and don't want to overwhelm them. Here's an example from a simple Youtube video that strikes a nice tone (like a kind professor/mentor):


A sample of the script is included--
if you're able to record this as an audition that would be great; but it's not a requirement if you don't have time.

We'd prefer to have each statement or paragraph in individual files so we can edit the overall timing, pauses, etc.

Thanks for your interest!

Powerful new research by Stanford psychologist *********** shows that mindset can be a key factor in determining your accomplishments.

You navigate through life using one of two mindsets:

A growth mindset, or a fixed mindset.

People using a Growth Mindset approach challenges by asking themselves three simple questions:

What can I learn from this?
How can I improve?
How can I help my team do this better?

Dweck’s research shows that a Growth Mindset expands your potential. If you always focus on what you can learn from a situation, as well as on the outcome, then every decision you make will help you in the long run.

With a Fixed Mindset, your main focus is on the outcome. You get derailed when facing obstacles, and thus avoid challenges and critical feedback. You consider every setback a failure rather than a learning opportunity.

Roger Bannister, Thomas Edison, and The Wright brothers all used a growth mindset to achieve what was previously thought to be impossible. And so does this guy:
