I am looking for a young-sounding female voice to do the voiceover for a 45 second book trailer that will be distributed online. The voice needs to sound thoughtful, and educated, and relatable. An every girl. Young but mature. Please send demos. The first part of the copy is below.
I had a plan.
I’d go to Northwestern, major in journalism, and convince somebody at
the New York Times to give me a job when I graduated.
But one tiny choice - deciding to take a drama class my senior year of
high school - changed all that. A year later, instead of starting
college, I was stuck on a Hollywood movie set, miles from where I was
supposed to be, wishing I could rewind my life.
That was yesterday.
The night before my 18th birthday.
The night before the earthquake.
The night before my past...
I've changed the copy. Please look at revised, pasted below:
If you'd asked me a year ago where I'd be today, I would've had an answer.
I would've told you my plan.
If you'd asked me yesterday where I'd be tomorrow, my answer would've been different, but I would've had one just the same, because yesterday I thought I knew. I thought it was up to me.
But that was before.
Before my birthday
Before the earthquake
Before I woke up this morning in another version of my life.
So if you asked me today, my answer would be shorter, and a lot more complicated.
Where will I be tomorrow?
I have no idea.
What I do know? That earthquake last night wasn't an earthquake, but a collision of parallel worlds.
And those memories you woke up with this morning?
they belong to someone else.
What would you do if your past weren’t your own anymore? If your future were out of your control?
How would you live if you only had today?
Then again, that's all we ever had.
I just didn't see it 'til now.
