Project Main Details
***** This price is just for a single pass at the story - We will be posting another add for this project in a week for the official VO. - If you do the scratch audio I will push the client to select you for the main read - which will pay $500. This client will most likely want to go with the read they hear initially ******
We are making an inspiring documentary about the history of sailing called tail winds.
Think ESPN 30 for 30 - or a documentary you would see during the olympics
We are looking for a strong male voice - must be able to have good range bringing in some emotional passion as well as being epic
This project is internal and will only be played at an event.
The script is not finalized yet - so I am looking for someone to give me scratch audio so that we can start building out our story and visuals - then do a final read once the story is done. 2016-11-08 02:22:32 GMT 2016-11-10 18:00:00 (GMT -08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 10 0 0 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

Quote: It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.
Sailboats have been around since 3400 BC. They were simple one-mast boats with square sails. [picture] Certainly there were races between boat builders, ports and shipping merchants. But in 1851, the first America’s Cup turned friendly competition into something much bigger. [picture]
There is no bigger competition in sailing then the America’s Cup. It began 160 years ago essentially as an international challenge to see which country could outperform every other country on the waters; same wind, same currents and identical conditions. [picture] For whatever reason, this competition has inspired more innovation, advancements and teamwork in racing then anything else. It’s not for the money and it’s not for the fame. They do it because these individuals are some of the most competitive people in the world.
The Cup has always inspired teams to get better. Over the years, the boats became faster [j-boat picture] the syndicates grew larger [crew], the rules became more complex [picture of the rules] and the competition grew more intense [video 1983 vintage crash]. As technology and design became a bigger part of the competition, the demands on the crew became much more intense. The technology was only as good as the people operating it, so the crew had to work smatter under extreme stress and duress. The syndicates started “full-on” fitness where they would put the crews through physical demands similar to those of a rugby match and then, while exhausted and fatigued, had to solve equations and puzzles. All it takes is one person to lose their train of thought, or make one mistake, and the race is lost. Or worse.
Quote: If there is a wave, there is a wind.
Sometimes, change happens slowly, Sometimes change happens slowly. In 2010, it happened overnight. Introducing the “man eaters.” A multi-hulled, carbon fiber beast with a wing, not a sail. You don’t sail these things, you fly them. In 2010, the teams with experience were outgunned by the teams with agility – the ones who quickly adapted to the new rules crushed those who didn’t. And it wasn’t just the crew that had to adapt. It was the entire syndicate – the owners, managers, captains, designers, tacticians, grinders, helmsmen. Everyone. The ones that got it right took this sport to a whole new level.
One of the most exciting advancements with the technology was the advent of foiling. This allowed the boats to lift out of the water and onto their foils, reducing drag and increasing speed. What made this so significant was that now boats could go faster than the wind. Wind speed is no longer the team’s limitation.
This may not look like the new normal. Because it isn’t. There may never be a new normal again, because as soon as the winds change, they change again. The new champions are proactive, prepared and coordinated. They don’t react to the change. They react with the change. Given this outlook, they can outperform the obstacles. They can outperform their adversaries. They can even outperform the wind.
