Hello guys here are 3 scripts for the next Booth Chat script practice which will be on Tuesday 7th February 2023 10am UK time.
It’s really helpful if you can let me know in the comments section below if you think you’ll be able to come, thanks so much.
Zoom link at the end of the post
You’re welcome to bring along one of your own scripts but please keep the word count to around 80 words and have the script ready to post into the Zoom chat!
SCRIPT 1: This is a product launch video for a new multitool, the Novium Edge and Shuttleport. The Edge is a letter opener, box cutter and ruler while the Shuttleport is a paperclip holder. Both items hover or float using magnets. Their designs are inspired by space exploration, rock formations on Mars, the rings of Saturn and rockets. The tone of the video is mysterious, cool and rugged with a sense of wonder and adventure. Think Audi car commercial.
Human ingenuity is a catalyst for adventure.
It sparks new journeys…
Where challenge and excitement thrive.
It’s here where we have forged the next generation…
Introducing… Novium (no-vee-um) Edge and Shuttleport
SCRIPT 2: VO for an approx 1min corporate film to be in the style of Formula 1 commentary.
Here we are at the amazing STC Jeddah Corniche circuit.
The fastest and longest street circuit in Formula 1 history
With a record 27 turns and speeds of up to 250 km/h.
So get ready for some lightning-quick action.
[The audio and sound effects really builds here as we hear the starting sounds and roar of engine with deep background cheer from the crowd.]
It’s lights out and off we go, go, go!
SCRIPT 3: A short video for schools to explore the legacy of Windrush. The script – appropriate for an audience of 11-14 year olds. VO Direction: respectful, friendly, conversational and knowledgeable.
Jobs needed to be filled in the health services, transport system and the postal service.
Even though people took jobs to help rebuild Britain after the war, they often faced racism and discrimination. Many people found it hard to find places to live and work.
Take a look at this photograph. What can you see? When do you think it was taken? Why?
What three words would you use to describe the mood in the picture?
The Notting Hill Carnival was started in 1959 to bring people together to celebrate Caribbean culture. This event is still celebrated today.

Thanks Tom, I’ll be here for this one 😊
Great news Emma!!
Hi Tom, I will be able to attend. I will just observe if that is ok. I am not yet confident enough to read a script. Thank you
Of course Ras, although I’ll bet once you see how relaxed and supportive it is you’ll be doing a read by the end! Looking forward to meeting you
I’ll be there (as the Jackson Five, I believe, said).
I’ve been reading a brilliant book all about the history of black music in London (Sounds Like London: 100 Years of Black Music in the Capital, by Lloyd Bradley), and from that, I learned more about the Carnival… That script isn’t entirely accurate.
Interestingly, people were recruited from different islands for different jobs – Jamaica for London Transport, Trinidad for the health service, and Barbados for council work.
“Got to be there, be there in the morning!”
Sounds like a great book Bruce, look forward to seeing you there!
Looking forward to making it this week. See you in the morning. 👍
Looking forward to catching up with you/all tomorrow. See you soon! 🙂
Excellent news Joy!
Tom, I have been out all day today, including 8 hours travelling, plus the works going on here are going to be even more noisy tomorrow, I suspect, so I will need to play things by ear….but if I should miss the session, have fun and hopefully (!), I will see you next week, Judith
Fair enough Judith, fingers crossed you can make it. I hope you’re able to continue with your voice over work with all that noise you’ve got to contend with!!?
Yeah, before they start at 8.30 am and after they finish at 4.30 pm …
Sorry for the late response, Tom! I’ll be there:)
Glad to hear it Anthony
