Project Main Details

How Can I Praise Thee 
This project is for is a poem written by a 21-year-old young man who passed away due to cancer two years ago. We need a reading of the poem to be set to video.

The right voice for this will be a mix of dramatic and hopeful - not somber, not ecstatic, but fully sincere. The right voice will also be slightly detached - the voice is not intended to represent the author, but a third party reading his words, albeit with some emotion.

The video will be a slightly abstract, dramatic piece set to the reading of this poem, one of the last things he wrote before he passed away. It is a very religious, Christian work. It was written from the perspective that his cancer was an opportunity to share the christian gospel with others before he died. It is dramatic, but intended to be hopeful.

The visuals that will accompany the poem will be largely from a documentary that followed him during the last 10 weeks of his life. The rest will be more abstract natural shots to go along with the feel of the video.

Budget is flexible, but fully depending on the quality of the voice and recording.

The script attached is an excerpt from the poem.
