Project Main Details

Whiskey honoring vets and the mountain lifestyle 
This is a :30 spot for a very special whiskey company. They donate proceeds from every bottle sold to today's military veterans.
I'm an LA-based commercial director - also a combat veteran of Iraq - so when I got to know the owners of this company while directing an episode of TV about them/their story, I decided I wanted to help them and their cause by re-cutting my footage into a polished commercial for them.

Unlike the well-funded national spots I normally direct (kylehausmannstokes.com), there is no agency or budget for this project. It will never appear on TV, only on their website and as an addition to my reel (also yours I hope).

That said, the spot will have all the polish of a typical broadcast commercial and I'd love to elevate it even more with an amazing voice.

Here is a rough cut of the spot using my voice as VO to give an idea of tone and pacing:


Overall, we're looking for a typical 'whiskey commercial' voice such as we've all heard in Jack Daniels and Jim Beam spots. The voice (adult, male or female) should have a bit of the grit and grizzled texture, but NOT TOO much. The right voice actor will know the balance. Do NOT want the overly-smokey "movie trailer voice" or highly processed "radio DJ voice" but instead, something that feels real, authentic, human...and just slightly richer than the everyday person's voice.

Here are some refs.

Jack Daniels “Old Fashioned” - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8NGrKjeU9k

Jim Beam "A Look Inside" TV Commercial - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWcosYdykeY
(Female voice reference, also right general direction and tone)

Jack Daniels “Wait For It” - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5dRuqivZBA
(right general direction and tone)

TINCUP Whiskey - "Up Here" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rUyld6KTi4
(right general direction and tone, but maybe a bit too grizzled.)

Wild Turkey Bourbon: The Journey Begins - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qf7JUaYAHE8
(Matthew McConaughey’s voice/cameo, also in the right general direction)
