African American Girl VO for Voting Rights film 
African American Girl Age 11 Voiceover for 1965 Selma Voting Rights film

We are producing a 40-minute documentary film about Voting Rights in Selma 1965. We are seeking an African American voice actor who can play an 11-year-old girl with a native or authentic Alabama accent (or other deep South), and work NON UNION.

The film tells the dramatic and historic story of the 1965 Selma voting rights campaign, and the subsequent march to Montgomery, Alabama. The focus of our documentary is the instrumental role that young people played in the voting rights campaign.

We’re looking for voice over actors to read the parts of the former African American high school students and teachers who were interviewed for the film. We are looking for actors who can read in an authentic sounding southern accent, not an over the top stereotype.

We are on a very tight deadline, and hoping to record people next week in Burbank, CA, or alternately, have them record at their pro home or local studio and email/FTP to us.

Please submit custom voice demo using sides (below), or email your voice audition to: **************************. Please choose at least a few paragraphs so we get a good sense of your voice and performance. Thank you!
