Project Main Details

Online educational movie about identical twins 
This voiceover is for a short movie about the epigenetic changes that occur over time in identical twins. It is a science education piece intended for high school students. The movie will be viewable on our website and on YouTube. The mood of the piece is a bit unusual and somewhat quirky using "found objects" to represent epigenetic tags and chromosomes rather than standard animation. The movie has been completed with an informal voiceover (me) and is available for viewing if interested.

Script Details

Sample script provided for auditions:

Identical twins are genetic carbon copies - the DNA sequences of their genes are exactly the same. Yet physically, identical twins become increasingly different over time. Why is this so?

Genes provide the instructions for the development and maintenance of the body. Yet a second set of instructions, know as the epigenome, interacts with DNA to activate or suppress the expression of particular genes.

Epigenetic tags are erased from mom and dad's genes during the first days after fertilization. However on some genes, the tags remain. These are known as imprinted genes.

As the twins age, their environments begin to differ. Their genomes remain the same. But signals from the environment act on the twins' epigenomes to activate and silence different genes. 
Please note that you should only use the script or your recording of it for auditioning purposes. The script is property, unless otherwise specified, of the voice seeker and it is protected by international copyright laws.
