Project Main Details
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.
