Scope of Work for my "Bio Story Video" Project I'm writing this note to give you a feel for my project so that we can get a cursory idea of whether or not we may be a good fit for each [url removed, login to view] starters, the purpose of my "Bio Story" video is to start the rapport building process by giving my prospective clients a peak into who Joe Rickards is as a person first. So, unlike most Bio's that you'll have ever seen (mostly just "look at me I'm the greatest), it is designed to be highly personal, even vulnerable.

Regardless of your decision, I really appreciate your consideration of my [url removed, login to view], please watch and listen to this 2 minute video as I think this VO talent here does the best job of anyone I've heard (for what I'm looking for that is). This is the closest example of what I'm looking for...<[url removed, login to view]> Thanks for your help,Joe
My VO request is somewhat unusual, I've recorded my own VO example from my script the way I want it read which will give you better insight into what I'm looking for.
