Project Main Details

Laptop Commercial for Social Media 

My name is Caleb Van Voorhis and I represent a brand that does marketing for Lenovo. I do not work directly for Lenovo but we create ads for them. We are producing a video for their newest laptop the ThinkPad X1 Tablet. In this video, two women compare the ThinkPad X1 Tablet and the Microsoft Surface Pro as if they were ex-boyfriends.

"A witty young woman compares the X1 to the Surface like she is describing two men that she went out with. The complicated & hard to figure out Surface has a slow processor, which means he's not really good at figuring out what you want & need. His memory isn't that good which means he won't remember important dates like birthdays & anniversaries. The X1 is sleek & light, which means you, can take him anywhere. X1 has great battery life so he can keep up & he's intuitive so he takes care of your needs."

We have the video already done, essentially its just images of the two laptops. We just need the narration.

If selected, we need the final version of the audio by Thursday April 22, so make sure you are available to send it then. This project is moving quickly.

We will pay a total $500 per person for this since since it is just the voice.
So if you just send me audio for one person and you're selected, you'll be paid $500. But if you and a friend send me audio reading for both parts and are selected you'll receive $1,000 in total. (Ideal)
There is a TOTAL of six 15-second videos.

If you would like to audition for this commercial. Please read the script below as BOTH parts. As we might decide which part works better for you. (I've attached it and pasted in below, they're the same.)

After you do that, I'll send you a release form via email and I'll need that filled out in order for you to be considered.
If selected, I'll send you the finalized full script and you'll need to record the audio for that.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Script Details


I like my tablets how I like my men.
OK, so who would you chooose? The Microsoft Surface or the Lenovo X1? They’re both handsome.
--Yes, but look “behind the surface” -- you need all those extra cables if you want to do anything “special” with him.
--Pfft -- who needs a man who’s complicated?
Exactly. And the X1 has productivity modules with built-in features, like a 60-inch projector--
--Now that’s a man who knows how to make a good presentation!
Hmmm -- does this mean we both have eyes for the same guy, Sherri?
--I already have an X1, Gina--
--Oh. Good.

I like my tablets how I like my men.
OK, so who’s better? The Microsoft Surface or the Lenovo X1?
--Well, the X1 has more connectivity, with extra USB ports --
--Sounds like he’s quite the accomodating gentleman!
--And he offers me three different ways of docking with him--
--Oooh, it’s getting hot in here! Why can’t the Surface do all that?
Some men are just... more versatile.
No need to tell me. Did I mention I have an X1?
--Yes -- don’t rub it in, Sherri.


I like my tablets how I like my men--
--OK, so which guy’s more equipped to go the distance with you? -- the Microsoft Surface -- or the Lenovo X1?
Pfft -- no contest there -- the X1 can go 15 hours unplugged, vs. 9 hours for the Surface.
Who doesn’t want a man who lasts longer? Think of all the things you could do in those extra 6 hours!
You tell me! -- you have an X1--
--I don’t share details, girl--
--Uh, huh -- sure you don’t, Sherri.
