Project Main Details

Leadercast Opening Video 
This VO is for the opening video for a leadership event called Leadercast. The read should have a storytelling/narrative tone to it and should have a sense of discovery to it. This is not a motivational video but should not have a hard sell. My direction would be to "search" for some of the words as though you are thinking of them and saying them for the first time. It should have a reverent tone as if maybe Gandalf the Grey was narrating this script. It should start slow and inquisitive and as the energy of the words in the copy begin to build, so should your cadence and tone.

Script Details

Why do we build?
Why do we stare at the horizon?
Why do we dream?
Why do we still chase the stars?
Why do we break ground and bread and chains?
Why is the blank piece of paper never just a blank piece of paper?
Why do some people see a bicycle and others see a plane?
Why do some people see a swamp in Orlando and others see a Magic Kingdom?
Why do some people see a lowercase i and others see an invitation to think different?
Why do we build?
Because we know a simple secret.
Everything big starts small.
Everything loud starts quiet.
Everything tomorrow starts today.
We are the architects.
Anyone can see what already is, it’s what isn’t that holds so much possibility.
That is why we build.
That is why we lead.
That is why we dream.
That is why we do not choose a path, we make a path. The roads to the future do not exist yet.
There are woods in the way. There are oceans to sail. Red tape to cut. Doubt to slay. Fear to fight.
If the future was easy, if tomorrow was promised, if building was simple, everyone would do it.
It is not.
Vision calls every part of us into play.
You can’t sit on the sidelines and build the future.
The future is the land of “all in!”
It starts with the eyes to see tomorrow. In a world distracted by what already is, you must see what could be.
But seeing isn’t enough. It is only the beginning.
You must speak up. You must use your voice. You must shout it from the rooftops and whisper it in the boardroom. You must paint a picture of a world that does not exist yet. Big dreams take big teams and a vision hidden is a vision that will not last.
You must have heart to inspire the dream of tomorrow. You can’t buy buy in. You can’t manufacture a movement. You must drag the future into the present with clarity and courage so that your team can glimpse and hope and trust in the same direction. You must paint a picture of a world that does not exist yet.

You must have feet. You cannot hit the ground running if you do not take the first step. You cannot lead a team to a place you have not been yourself. A dream without action is a fantasy, not a vision.
You must light the path with a flare that does dim.
Not once. Not twice. Not just a thousand times.
You must lead every day, until today becomes tomorrow and the future becomes the present.
It will seem crazy at first. They will say, “That’s not how we do things.” “It will never work.” “Who do you think you are to pull that off?”
Doubt will rally a thousand troops at your front door.
But fear not, you are not the first to hear such things. You will not be the last to ignore them.
Today is better because of the visionary leaders of yesterday, and the future will be brighter because of the Architects of Tomorrow.
The future is always a little far-fetched, right up until it works. 100 years ago, you couldn’t explain the phone in your pocket to a single person on the planet. And now, we can’t imagine life without it.
This is why we build. This is why we are Vision Architects.

Because we know a simple secret.

With our eyes, with our voices, with our hearts, with our feet, we know.
Tomorrow starts today.
