Project Main Details

Great American Speeches replacement 
This is a very delicate project that requires all voice talent to sound as authentic and natural as possible. This project will be used for educational purposes and is funded by an educational foundation. The voice over should have a nice conversational tone with energy. The character is based on an actual historical character by the name of Chief Joseph. I have had some good voices audition previously but the client has found them to be tired and over emotional. Please make the tone and timbre of the voice natual. No cariacture or cartoon like voices.

For audition purposes you may choose to read the 1st or 2nd paragraph.

We have been looking for the right voice for this character for over a month. My clients are extremely picky.

Length is around 2 pages.

CD for educational purposes.

Script Details

Sample of the script for aduition purposes:

Since the government moved us to Washington, three of our children have died. Let us go to a better place where my family will not be treated as outlaws, and shot down like animals.
I know that my race must change, but I only ask for a chance to live as other men live. Let my people be free to follow the religion of my fathers, to talk and act for ourselves. I have only asked that we are recognized as men, and have the same law as others. If an Indian breaks the law, punish him by the law. If a white man breaks the law, punish him the same. When the white man treats the Indian as they treat each other, then there will be peace.
We are now at the mercy of those who have dealt with us unfairly. Yet what can be done?

Oh, hear me my chiefs, my heart is tired of fighting. My friends have been killed. Looking Glass is dead. Tu-hul-hil-sote is dead. All of the old men are dead. He who led the young men, my brother Alikut, is dead. Even the little children of my friends and family are freezing to death. Some of my people became afraid and ran into the hills, and have no blankets or food. No one knows where they are. They may be freezing, but we are not even allowed to go and look for them to see how many can be helped. I fear that we shall find them among the dead.
