Project Main Details

Holland VO 
We are producing a short film that is a 10 to 15 minute piece based on an American woman in Holland and her experience with Gezellig, and the effect it has on her thereafter. One of our main characters in the film is a small and fantastic dog named Joepie - he's our narrator and as such is very important to the film. The voice we are looking for must have a DUTCH accent. He should have gravitas, and while he is a small dog, his personality is bold, confident, mischievous. A deeper voice will be unexpected in this character but welcomed. As far as timing, we'd want to do an initial recording for the 30-second trailer on 9/9, and hold 9/12 for revisions. We'd do an initial record for the short film on 9/16 and hold 9/23 OR 9/30 for revisions. So for two scripts, commercial web use and a single film premier, with one round for initial recording for each script and one round for revisions on each script, we're offering a rate of $1,500. Please note in that attached script that you will be auditioning for the part of Joepie. Thanks!

Script Details

EXT. [TBD] - DAY A view of a picturesque, quintessential Amsterdam location. JOEPIE (V.O.) (deep breath/sniff) Here, on the [canal], in Amsterdam, in Holland- (accelerating) -in Europe, on Earth, and so on... INSERT: AMSTERDAM MAP with an ARROW pointing to [location] then a HOLLAND MAP then a EUROPE MAP then a WORLD MAP, SOLAR SYSTEM MAP, the UNIVERSE... - Back to [the location], but TEXT tells us it’s 1635. Rembrandt (played by PIM) “studies” light by squinting at it, closing one eye then the other, and playing “peek-a-boo.” JOEPIE (V.O.) A man named Rembrandt studied the light on the water.... - 1877. Van Gogh (played by PIM) gazes out at the view. JOEPIE (V.O.) A man named Van Gogh felt an itch. VAN GOGH/PIM I wish I could paint this. Van Gogh reaches to itch his ear... but stops. - NOW. KAT (early 30’s, distressed) looks from us (the camera) to behind her. Torn. Which way should she go? JOEPIE (V.O.) And a woman named Kat makes a choice that will echo across infinity. Kat spots a CLOCKTOWER. Its seconds TICK rapidly, the sound AMPLIFIED and accelerating. Stressful. JOEPIE (V.O.) But first. The clock’s TICKING halts. JOEPIE (V.O.) The beginning... INSERT: AMSTERDAM MAP – an ORANGE line and BLUE line are squiggled all over the map (Kat and Joepie’s path). They “rewind” to the start: DE PIJP. But then we keep going -- to the MAPS of HOLLAND, EUROPE, WORLD, GALAXY. A HAND crumples the GALAXY into a tiny ball on a white surface. JOEPIE (V.O.) Nothing but an infinitesimally dense point containing space, time, and all matter in the universe. It suddenly expands, and thirteen billion years later... The hand tries to “un-crumple” the map. It points to a spot- INSERT: AMSTERDAM MAP. A BLUE DOT appears in De Pijp. JOEPIE (V.O.) ... this is where Kat meets me. EXT. DE PIJP, GERARD DOUPLEIN - DAY Establishing view of the square in De Pijp. Pim suddenly appears extremely close to camera, making silly faces and baby talking to us. This is JOEPIE’S PERSPECTIVE (POV). JOEPIE (V.O.) No, not him. Pim’s words sound like nonsense (like the “WAH-WAH’s” of adults in “Charlie Brown”) except a few words jump out: PIM (in Dutch; subtitled) Wah wah... good boy. Wah wah. Stay. We reverse and reveal that Pim is talking to JOEPIE. A dog. Me. JOEPIE (V.O.) 2. Pim pats Joepie and walks inside an ice cream shop, leaving Joepie sitting in a bike basket. Joepie’s nose SNIFFS. JOEPIE (V.O.) I can sniff trillions of molecules from all over Holland- Rapid MONTAGE OF HOLLAND: windmills, canals, bikes, museums, Schiphol Airport, Rotterdam, Delft, Utrecht, fields of tulips- JOEPIE (V.O.) -and detect a single molecule of tul- STROOPWAFEL.
