Project Main Details

Human rights video  
I am producing a fundraising video for a law firm that does almost exclusively PRO BONO work for those suffering from human rights and religious rights violations, primarily in Asia and the Middle East. I'm looking for a solid "documentary" voice... nice gravitas... but relatable. I'm leaning towards a male voice over, but the head of the firm is female. Also, "gravitas" doesn't mean "a deep voice." It just means a sense of seriousness, weight, understanding, empathy.

Script Details

***custom demo required*** 
Jus Cogens is pronounced "Yooce KO-ghens" Jus is like "juice" with a "y" sound at the front. Cogens is like "Logans" with a "K" sound at the front.

There are many stories of Jus Cogens providing this legal assistance to those devoted to showing God’s love to others. The story of a Christian orphanage in Morocco is emblematic of the threat to Christians throughout the world. For decades, a group of American and international Christian volunteers has devoted themselves to care for the discarded and orphaned children of Morocco. A home called the Village of Hope.

But this was really only the first step in the government’s plan to deport every foreign Christian in the country - more than 750 people. Many of these people were running centers for the poor, literacy centers, and rehabilitation centers for the handicapped. The government seized their businesses, bank accounts, cars, houses, and company assets...

Jus Cogens knew it needed a lever to force action... and it found one. A special fund that the United States used to provide counter-terrorism assistance to Morocco - $700 million dollars. A fund, with a string attached - compliance to human rights. The fund was frozen and a Congressional hearing was called.

To deliver the greatest impact, Jus Cogens works on two fronts: starting with the people on the ground who are suffering, but also working at the highest levels of international government.

Atrocities like this sometimes go unreported. But Jus Cogens seeks to bring these affronts to religious freedom into the light of the international stage.

And it’s a critical asset, because Jus Cogens works at intersection between international law and politics. It requires a rare combination of skills, knowledge and experience...
