Project Main Details

MoneyLife Harriet Tubman 
This script will be used to tell a cinematic story. Each story will feature "ken burns" style photos and videos representing the script. The voice should be a great storyteller. Story should be told very dramatically emphasizing all the action unfolding within. I want to feel how engaged you are as the storyteller. The victories should feel triumphant and the tragedies should be disastrous. The soundtrack will be film score that directly matches the tone and feel of the script and voice. It will also feature subtle sound effects supporting the story.

Script Details

***please submit custom audition*** 
Harriet Tubman was born a slave. So humble was her entry into this world on the eastern shore of Maryland that historians aren’t even sure the year of her birth.
As a child, Harriet was beaten over and over again. Once she was struck so hard she was left unconscious for days with a fractured skull and a permanent disability with lasting seizures and severe headaches.

Though she was a slave, Harriet kept her faith in God throughout it all. She prayed diligently everyday for the deliverance of her and her family. However, it wasn’t until her young adulthood in the eighteen forties that God gave her an escape opportunity.

At this time the famous Underground Railroad, an elaborate system of safe houses and secret travel routes, had already been established by abolitionists to help runaway slaves reach freedom in the North.

History records little of Harriet’s own escape from slavery in eighteen forty nine but we do know that once she reached freedom, Harriet got organized. She raised money, established contacts on the Underground railroad, built networks of abolitionists, and then did the unthinkable. She went back to save others.

During her first successful rescue mission, Harriet brought her niece and three other family members out of slavery and into sweet freedom. And just a few months later in Maryland she successfully brought out her brother and two other men.

With each trip back, Harriet gained confidence. Some say she became fearless, taking extraordinary risks and suffering severe hardships to avoid capture by cruel slave chasers. Harriet traveled with her fellow runaway slaves almost exclusively in darkness during the winter months when nights are long and most people stay indoors. She was constantly exposed to cold and hunger. But for more than a decade, nothing stopped her from bringing hundreds of runaway slaves to freedom.

In her later life, Harriet said her faith in God kept her strong during all those dangerous exploits. From the time of her severe head injury as a child, Harriet experienced visions, which she believed God used to guide her to safety. Incredibly, she never lost a single person during a rescue mission.

Harriet Tubman chose to have faith in God—that He would protect and provide for her…and that made all the difference.
