Dramatic Reading short on Christian Persecution 
Dramatic Narration:

We have a completed short form piece (~ 2 minutes) for a Christian television program that needs to be voiced. The piece is a poignant, serious look at persecuted believers around the world. The voice must exude some level of gravitas, a certain authentic, transparent, real quality that viewers can connect with.

Basically, we want all the text graphics on-screen read aloud as an accompaniment. The text on-onscreen is written with a terse, fragmented style, and I think it'd be helpful if you read it in that method as well as in a normal speaking manner (I'll script the conversational tone next to the original in parenthesis). Having a few reads of each would be great.

We want the tone to be serious, but authentic. I know as voice actors, you have a lot of range, but in this piece, we want authenticity and subtlety. Just talk as you would to a friend about something rough. We don’t want to oversell; we just want to communicate the reality of these situations.
