Project Main Details

Eerie Preface read 
We're looking for voices that have an overall soothing tone, with a bit of an underlying uneasiness/unsettling nature to them. This shouldn't feel announcer-y or ordinary. It should feel eerie, unusual, different and compelling but not distracting. We are looking for somebody that sounds like they are telling an old folk tale/lore/legend/myth from memory-- and should not sound like reading a book. Think haunting, chilling, brooding, dark, mystical.

Pace should be slow, deliberate and thoughtful. The story should be told in the way the inflection and energy comes across in the read.

We love the pacing, voice style and delivery of this reference:

Script Details

1. The forest, the creek the mud, the river—seemed to beckon with a dishonoring flourish before the sunlit face of the land a treacherous appeal to the lurking death, to the hidden evil, to the profound darkness of its heart. It was so startling that I leaped to my feet and looked back at the edge of the forest, as though I had expected an answer of some sort to that black display of confidence.

2. Imagine a ruin so strange it must never have happened. First, picture the forest. I want you to be its conscience, the eyes in the trees. The trees are columns of slick, brindled bark like muscular animals overgrown beyond all reason. Every space is filled with life: Vines strangling their own kin in the everlasting wrestle for sunlight. A single-file army of ants biting a mammoth tree into uniform grains and hauling it down to the dark for their ravenous queen. And, in reply, a choir of seedlings arching their necks out of rotted tree stumps, sucking life out of death. This forest eats itself and lives forever.
