I LOVE NY director cut 
Looking for an adult male narrator's voice that sounds like it is from a 1950s instructional film.

Please do NOT apply “old timey” effects to your audition recording to help achieve this sound, at this point in the process we are simply seeking someone who can can sound like they are from that era.

Some call it a ‘transatlantic’ accent and most important to us is that you sound authentic and believable…NOT gimmicky or cheesy. This is not comedy or satire. It is meant to sound like an actual vintage recording recovered from the 1950s.

Your voiceover will be used in the director’s cut of the new summer campaign for I ❤️NY / NY Tourism. The creative concept for this spot is that, while the visuals and music are 2017, the voiceover is 1950s, juxtaposed in a mixed media manner. We spent the last two weeks shooting gorgeous footage of families vacationing all over upstate New York and, once you read the script, you can imagine how we will pair these fun/emotional/inspirational visuals with this ‘found vintage’ audio recording about “The Importance of Vacation.”

Please watch this link. It is a good reference for the style/delivery of voiceover we are after, but also how it will be used with contemporary elements.

In addition to the rate, you will be working directly with the director and receive and HD version of the spot soon as complete in a few weeks.

Script Details

A new study finds that during summer months, a family vacation or road trip can be pivotal to a child’s development, happiness and resolve.

More than adults, children experience the world via the senses.

Through sight. Sound. Touch.Taste. And smell.

This study posits that some lessons can’t be taught. Or read in a book.

They must be experienced. First hand.

Others, such as the principals of scale, perspective, and diversity, are only truly grasped when encountered in the real world.

What we don’t yet know is how the parents…the planners and financiers of these summer vacations are affected.

Do they find moments to themselves? Are they able to participate in their children’s joy?

This data is not yet available.

That said, it is the unsolicited opinion of this orator that, if your children are home for the summer and you have a weekend to spare…

...pack a few things, jump in the car, and get the hell outta dodge.
