Hello guys, here are the 2 scripts and the recording for this week’s Booth Chat, Tuesday 25th July 2023.
If you can think of any good examples of a “poetic” VO read that you’ve seen on your travels I’d love to take a look at it (I seem to remember there were some pretty good ones during the pandemic), since script 2, below, seemed to cause a lot of headaches for some of us!
Post a link in the comments section below.
The recording is below the scripts
SCRIPT 1: We are seeking a captivating voiceover for a cottage holiday ad. The voice is gentle, warm, stoic. It should be able to convey joy and a sense of measured pride. It’s reflective and poignant. The role of this voiceover is to very much immerse the audience in the film, as though it is a retrospective.
I loved seeing the world through their eyes,
Their endless curiosity…
Adventure was always around the corner
Whether near……or far…
Bound by bright memories,
For them this was more than just a holiday
SCRIPT 2: Need this one minute voice over for an online video to sound poetic, subtle, quiet, contemplative. Read it almost like a diary entry, quiet to yourself. Similar to this reference: https://vimeo.com/127012092
There’s a story…
there’s a story in the wheat
the milk and oats
there’s a story in the sugar
the whispering wind
the wet roads
there’s a story in the drives home
the ebbs and flows
the early harvests
there’s a story in the quiet laugh
the hands of sons
the eyes of mothers and fathers
there’s a story in everything
