Project Main Details

You Didn't Build It 
I am producing a spot that consists of taking actual Customer testimonials from out clients FaceBook page and doing an "Actor Portrayal" of their voice. I have about 14-15 lines that need to be read.

There are 6 main quotes at the beginning of the spot - and 10 or so secondary quotes at the end that will be spoken in a crescendo all at once at the end. The idea is to start slow and then.... start having the quotes overlap each other, in rapid succession, to create a feeling of everyone talking at the same time.

I hope to find 6 Voice actors ( 3 - male and 3 - female) that can do one of the main quotes at the beginning and then 1 or 2 of the secondary ones at the end in a slightly different voice. Since the secondary voices will be all overlapping we won't / shouldn't be able to tell it is the same set of actors. Plus I will do some EQ'ing to hellp.

This is a political spot in response to the statement President Obama said a few days ago about "if you started a business - you didn't build it yourself."

These quotes are from my clients facebook page who are taking issue with that statement. They all happen to be business owners who have testimony of getting an idea, taking a risk, saving, working, going out on a limb and starting a business.

These reads can in NO WAY sound like a professional Voice Over - they must be accurate portrayal of a real person...your neighbor who owns the carpet cleaning business, or the dry cleaner, or the restaurant.

For this I really need the natural guy / gal next door voice.

Most times when you hear a voice actor doing quotes like this it is obvious that it is an actor reading a script. For this to work it HAS to sound natural. It just has to sound believable.

My client is a political action group from the conservative side of he if that is not your thing i understand completely. *******************

This is kind of a rush job that needs to hopefully be recorded tomorrow (Friday 7/20)

Script Details

***custom demo required*** 
Here are a few sample lines to be read:

Main Quote:

The government does not produce or sell anything. Without taxes paid by business owners it would have no money for roads and bridges. So actually, it is the business owners that financed those roads and bridges, not the government.

Secondary Quote:

From those of us who own a business and have built it, I resent his attitude.
