Mail from Vincent 
ZD1867551
This is a cute, playful, instructional animation for a tech company. Vincent Van Gogh is trying to tackle sending an email attachment of his work to his brother, Theo. We'll follow the journey of his email. The attached script is only partial and will be 2mins 20 seconds long. Talent should have a late 20-something/ early 30-something female, western european-accented sound. (For example, a very light accent of French or Dutch but not pronounced/heavy). The delivery should have optimism but be natural as opposed to overly performative. More conversational than "radio ready." A bit of "character" in the voice could be a consideration.

N/A 
VO: If you’re like most people, you send a lot of email. But maybe you’ve wondered what happens to all that data once you hit send? Where does it go and how does it get from point A to point B? VO: It’s something a lot of people wonder about. Even Vincent Van Gogh. Hey, there. (Vincent, complete with bandage on his ear, turns around and nods to us and then returns to painting. Everything in Vincent’s world is minimal but whimsical line art illustration with the exception of his lush paintings.) VO: Here’s how it works. In the old days, most of us stored our data like this. Not ideal. (We see an old, dusty filing cabinet in Vincent’s studio with the edges of pictures sticking out of it. A cat walks by, sniffs it, turns up its nose and keeps walking.) VO: These days, mail servers use what’s called a “distributed network.” It’s a more modern way of doing things that works a bit differently. (We see Vincent take a picture of Starry Night with his phone. When the VO mentions the key words “distributed network” we see a reaction shot of Vincent nodding/listening to visually punctuate this pivotal moment.) VO: Take pictures, for example. Like the one Vincent’s sending to his brother and a few friends. (Then we see Vincent at a laptop and a close-up of him adding some friends to the “:to” field of his email. Now he’s dragging a photo of Starry Night into the email.) VO: Whenever you send a picture, email does a few things. It makes sure there’s more than one copy of the data to keep it safe, and divides the data into tiny encrypted pieces so it can be processed, stored, and moved quickly and securely. (The photo of the painting duplicates and begins to gracefully fly apart mimicking the swirling motion of the painting.) VO: The network where email stores these bits of data is a group of connected servers located all over the world. Vincent’s picture isn’t sitting on just one hard drive in a dusty file cabinet somewhere. (The fragments we saw earlier fly out the window and up into a cloud of swirling data. As we pass through the cloud, streams of data disperse across a whimsical version of the globe and zoom down into data centers in a range of continents.) VO: Instead, the network redistributes and stores the data in an intelligent way. For example, the network might move the different pieces of data to free space on different servers if that’s more efficient, or swap its location when a server needs to be repaired, or replaced. VO: There are other good reasons email does all this. A big one is that intelligently moving data means the people you send a picture to, can reliably get it right away. VO: Moving your data this way also keeps the whole system balanced and running smoothly, so the network is faster overall. VO: Which all means that Vincent will definitely get a little inspiration from these guys. (We are back inside Vincent’s computer seeing the data reform into an email thread which includes selfies from Theo, Gauguin and Monet. They’re all giving thumbs up. We pass through it and see Vincent smile for the first time in the video.) VO: And that works out pretty well for everyone.
