Project Main Details

Perfect Roasted Potatoes 

This is a temporary voice over for a rough edit of a short film. The film is a bittersweet black comedy about family, grief, and potatoes. The narrator is omniscient yet human and will hopefully imbue the piece with wit and pathos.

We're looking for an older, female, American voice with an intelligent, comforting charm. A theatrical background, a good grasp of comic timing would help. As would the ability to record a good quality read from home.

There are two montages in the film which require narration - Mugsy Montage and Potatoes Montage.

Script Details


Mugsy was born in London in 1932. Growing up during wartime rationing taught her to respect the power and
wonder of food. From an early age she loved to cook.

Mugsy married her husband Peter in 1950. They had two children, Tamara, and William. And every day, she showed the family her love with her cooking.

Solid British classics. Elegant new dishes learned on trips to Europe. And eventually the bombastic cuisine of her final home.

Over the course of her life Mugsy cooked 84,567 meals.

On Christmas Eve 1999, Tamara helped Mugsy make vegetable soup. It was the last meal she cooked.


Of all Mugsy's culinary achievements there was one dish for which she was noted, praised, and thanked above all. Her Roast Potatoes.

They were the high point of every family meal. In many ways they WERE Christmas. To taste them was to
taste love in its purest form. They were delicious. They were beautiful. They were perfect.
