Project Main Details

Forgotten War 
This is for a one-hour documentary for Mountain Lake PBS in Plattsburgh, NY. It chronicles the French and Indian War, giving the perspectives of the British, French and Native Americans.

We would like a strong but friendly voice, not too preachy. Not a news voice. Not the voice of a god, but authoritative in a gentle way. A real, but wise sounding person. A "character" voice might be good. But not in the extreme. Female or male. Both could work.

There are many difficult Indian names to pronounce.

What else? Oh... must like dogs, sunshine, good jokes, dark chocolate with red wine and long walks....
wait that's starting to sound like a different kind of posting.
Better just go by the first comments.

Script Details

Sample script provided for auditions:

It’s four years into the French and Indian War.
The Abenaki settlement of Odanak has been targeted for a surprise attack.

Robert Rogers and his Rangers – a famous regiment of backwoods guerrillas -- are to punish the Abenakis for their alliance with the French enemy. The village is burned to the ground. Women and children die. Others are taken captive.

To get home Robert's Rangers will have to march through hundreds of miles of uncharted woods and swamps -- pursued by the French, and by native warriors.

That journey home has become legendary as a story of heroism and survival against the harshest odds…

Most of Rogers’ men never made it. A few who did survive may have done so by eating human flesh.

And somehow -- out of this story of massacre and cannibalism, Robert Rogers emerged as a hero in the 13 colonies.

There are many sides to the story of Robert Rogers, of the Abenakis and Odanak, and of the French and Indian War in the North Country…

…stories that still reverberate today – 250 years later – across the mountains, lakes and rivers of the North Country.
