An Authority You Can Trust 
ZD2470382
We invite you to be the voice of Shepherd Shield! I have attached the original treatment so you can have a better sense of the brand and the tone of the commercial.

It will be an evocative piece in the style of AT&T's "It Can Wait" commercials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVnRcIXEqaU

The VO script is broken up into two parts: before shooting and after shooting. Before shooting, the voice over is very upbeat, positive like an advertisement for a community college. It is all about seeing the beauty and wonder in the mundane. It captures the awe of the ordinary. The amazing things in life we take for granted and only realize once it is too late. After the shooting, the voice over becomes the voice of reason and comfort in the face of the unimaginable.

To match the intimate tone of the commercial, we want a conversational and natural voice. We are NOT looking for a radio announcer. Please do not force your voice to sound dramatic. This is not the introduction to People's Court. Rather this a father confronting his son with an important talk. Your voice should have the intimacy of a bedroom conversation. Trust your natural tone, speak authentically and from the heart.

Imagine you are speaking to your son. You have advice you need to share with him, but you don't want to turn him off by coming on too strong. You want to communicate to him that you are understanding, but also that you know what is best for him. You need him to trust you. You have the authority of a life well lived. If only you knew what you are about to tell your son, you could have saved yourself from so much suffering. Don't let him repeat your mistakes. Communicate clearly. Earn his trust. Speak from the heart.

When you record this voice over, don't try to be someone else. Be yourself. Go to a time in your life when you had to have a hard, honest conversation. Prepare yourself to speak truth in the face fear. Exude confidence that is rooted in your experience. We believe in you and trust that your strongest performance will come from letting your true voice ring.

Your voice can be trusted. You are Shepherd Shield.

A few examples of performances that capture this honest, empathetic storytelling from the heart include:

Wilford Brimley on Diabetes—https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvzIktiFY6k
Jeff Daniels in Newsroom—https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rpn0vh2Rj0Y
Mike Rowe from PragerU— https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVEuPmVAb8o
Jeff Bridges in a PSA—https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RUYkzJio24
Dennis Haysbert for All-state: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBAwXN8lS88

The gravitas is in what we are talking about, so don't need to over dramatize your voice. Your voice will communicate to the audience that they can trust you to tell it to them straight when it matters most.
