Project Main Details

Documentary Narrator 
We're producing a short historical documentary video about the founding of an educational institution. We are looking for a narrator who can deliver these factual lines as an engaged storyteller, really understanding what she is saying and passing her interest on to the listener. We're looking for an appropriate level of emotion and excitement, but we do NOT want this narration to come across as promotional or corporate. Think PBS documentary. Additionally the narrator should be able to take direction to try a few different reads, and be able to tailor the timing of her read to fit into the time slots we have in the piece.

Script Details

Please read a portion from the script below for auditions. 
Today’s Cambridge University is a world-class center for teaching and research. Faculty, students and researchers are united in their goal to advance the frontiers of knowledge and solve contemporary real-world problems, following the vision laid out for CU 150 years ago…. But the place itself has certainly evolved and flourished since those early days.

As the war is ending in 1865, Cambridge University holds its first classes in rented space in downtown Boston’s Mercantile Building, while constructing its own buildings near Copley Square. Smith's vision for a new kind of education with its emphasis on hands-on learning made it crucial to establish cutting-edge laboratories.

By the time operations moved across the Charles to the brand new Cambridge campus in 1916, CU's ongoing future seemed assured. Over the decades, the roadmap Smith laid out for his school has proved flexible enough to stay true to his founding ideals while incorporating new fields as they emerge.
