Project Main Details

Explorer Virunga 
Six mountain gorillas are found murdered, execution-style by gunfire, in Africa’s Virunga National Park. By chance, photojournalist Brent Stirton is there on assignment and he documents the scene. His photographs of the lifeless male silverback and family are transmitted around the world. And the world responds in disbelief. Only an estimated 700 of these primates remain in the wild and now there are six fewer. In the end, one man will be falsely accused of the crime, one will stand trial and one will hold the park, and the remaining mountain gorillas that live there, hostage.

We are looking for actors, voice and traditional, narrators and voice over artists to work with us on an upcoming Explorer Special on Virunga National Park and its Mountain Gorillas.

We need males, aged 35-50, English speakers of Congolese or French African descent, with moderate to light accents, to voice over English translations of our French speaking main characters. We are looking for talents who can capture the drama of the original characters and convey this through to an English speaker audience. Each section will be about 5-10 minutes in length per actor.

We are looking to audition prospective candidates Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. (June 3-5) Narration record will take place Thursday/Friday or over the weekend.

Script Details

Standard demos are definitely acceptable.

"I assure you that I am not involved in any activity to destroy the fauna and flora, as alleged. Those people are just trying to demonize me and defame my personality around the world. I had him arrested? When did I have him arrested and whipped? When? I never had him whipped, please, never. I already said, that the day when he was whipped I was at Kinshasa."
Please note that you should only use the script or your recording of it for auditioning purposes. The script is property, unless otherwise specified, of the voice seeker and it is protected by international copyright laws.
