Project Main Details

Honey for the Maya 
This will be a 3 to 5 minute trailer style pitch tape for producers and investors. It will be circulated throughout much of American and Mexican academia to create revenue for an hour long TV documentary on the subject of the Mayan culture and their millennia old beekeeping customs and traditions, passed down to them through the ages. The intention is to create awareness and thus preserve what is otherwise becoming a dying way of life.

The trailer and documentary is being produced by Emmy Award Winning WildTime Media, who you may remember from the BBC's "Planet Earth" series. The VO talent chosen for this short project will likely become the automatic choice for the hour long TV documentary.

We are essentially looking for the Mexican version of David Attenborough, (narrator of Planet Earth). In other words, someone who can pull off a nice relaxed read, with plenty of character, without sounding even the slightest bit like an advertisement, who has a real accent, and understands the pacing of the read. Pacing is extremely important. We have epic footage and epic music to work with, so your voice must flow perfectly with it. The reader will need to be able to use his voice to inflect a sense of awe and spectacle.

If you find yourself asking who David Attenborough is, or what is "Planet Earth", this is a link to a clip on YouTube.


Best of Luck!
