SUPERB Actor in his 50s or 60s Needed 
Hi there,

I need an A+ actor for an ongoing internet based VO project.

You should be older (50's to 60's) or at least *sound* like you're older.

Let me be clear: I am not looking for a 'voice'.

And I am not looking for a radio DJ.

In fact, I care *less* about the quality of your voice, and more about your acting chops.

Are you theater or conservatory trained?
Were you always the best actor in your acting class?
Can you 'sell a script' in a totally believable manner?

If the answer is 'yes' to any of those questions, then feel free to apply for my unique project.

1. I'm looking for 100% naturalistic... however, that doesn't mean that you shouldn't use your vocal range, or vary your vocal pacing.
2. I'm looking for a slightly older sounding man, but I definitely do NOT want a 'fake' raspy, gaspy stereotypical older sound superimposed over your own voice… It should sound natural.
3. Capture my attention with the way you tell the story – pretend you're talking to a good friend.

If you are booked, you can expect ongoing VO work for internet based long form infomercials, and information based products that require a spokesperson.

If I like your initial read, you'll be invited to a short callback with an alternate script, and I'll test your ability to take direction. I've included a short dramatic monologue in the sample section to test your acting chops.

**IMPORTANT** -- If hired, the actual copy you'll record for us will be a long form, story based informercial.

Thanks and break a leg!

PS: This project does include some 'edgy' (adult oriented content) - so if you're going to audition, make sure you have an open mind !

Script Details

In this monologue, STEIN, a high profiled businessman accepts his defeat by a young up and comer.
STEIN: "It’s too late Tommy, we lost…we lost…he beat us in one stroke of genius because we didn’t know enough about our business. We didn’t know enough and the kid who had nothing came up from behind and clobbered the shit out of us. Didn’t he?

Hey, at least it was us he was clobbering. We learned alot. I’m just…I don’t know, I feel like I’ve been stung by a million bees but…for some reason, I’m disappointed, mad but not as much as as you think. I just feel okay with it. I’m okay with it. I don’t have a choice do I? (he laughs) (sips his wine) Yeah. Yeah…I have to take into account the beating I took. I’m going to heal.

This was it for me. I accept my defeat and in a sick way, I’m glad it was by this kid…well, he’s not a kid but, I’m glad it was by a brilliant guy. It’s made me realize I’m too old to see the game anymore.

It’s knocked me into my wake up call."
