Project Main Details
If you’ve watched or heard Ken Burns’ Civil War documentary, with its many first-person excerpts read aloud, you have a sense of the style of delivery: honest, conversational, not overly dramatic or showy but warm and full of emotion, paying attention to the language and where emphasis should fall in each sentence, letting the words breath, and making it sound as if the person speaking is across the room or even inside one’s head. Our uppermost goal is to make these voices from the past sound like real people talking to us today.
Because we have over 75 characters to cast for the media we are creating for this museum, we are bundling similar characters. This role comprises three characters: more details are below in the sample script.
You must be able to record and deliver professional quality reads. A sample excerpt to record is below. The excerpts are short (most are in the range of 150-300 words), and depending on the number of lines, we are offering $75-150 per role.
If interested, please submit a sample by Wednesday Sept. 26. 2012-09-22 15:02:04 GMT 2012-09-26 15:00:00 (GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 2 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

“May it not be said in truth, that God decreed this institution [of slavery] before it existed; and has he not connected its existence with prophetic tokens of special favor…? He is the same God now that he was when he gave these views of his moral character to the world… Thornton Stringfellow”
Robert E. Lee, 56 years old, from Virginia:
“The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa,
morally, physically, and socially.”
“General Ewell was, therefore, instructed to carry the hill occupied by the enemy, if he found it practicable, but to avoid a general engagement until the arrival of the other divisions of the army, which were ordered to hasten forward. General Robert E. Lee, Confederate Army.”
James Gillespie Birney, a Kentucky-born abolitionist:
“I begin to think, it is time for Christians to leave the slaveholding States….There will be no cessation of the strife, until Slavery shall be exterminated or liberty destroyed.”
