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. Each role comprises 2-3 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 Friday Sept. 28. 2012-09-24 11:59:18 GMT 2012-09-28 11:00:00 (GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 1 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

“My dear Mrs. McFarland, Your dear husband has given [his] limit to his country. [He] was wounded in the leg, is doing well. May the God of all consolation comfort you. [I] am too steeped in sorrow and death [and] cannot rejoice over our victory. You have my heartfelt sympathy and prayers. Ellen Orbison Harris.”
Lydia Maria Child (a political activist from Massachusetts, who was 31 years old at the time she wrote this):
“From the moment the slave is kidnapped, to the last hour he draws his miserable breath, the white man’s influence directly cherishes ignorance, fraud, treachery, theft, licentiousness, revenge, hatred, and murder. It cannot be denied that human nature thus operated upon, must necessarily yield, more or less, to all those evils. To enlighten public opinion is the best way that has yet been discovered for the removal of national evils; and slavery is certainly a national evil. Lydia Maria Child.”
