Project Main Details

I am looking for an African American male talent middle age or older, with soul, weight and a sense of humor too.

The directions as to the type of read and voice we are looking for is as follows:

It has to be gentle, friendly, and comforting. It has to feel like the narrator cares, and is perhaps sharing some hard-learned personal wisdom—not someone else’s. And he or she needs to be able to have a sense of humor. A lot of the VO will only work with the visuals if it feels a bit tongue-in-cheek.

"The qualities I’m looking for are GENTLE, FRIENDLY, and PROFOUND. It’s not going to be a dry non-fiction read, but a nuanced, dramatic read film narration which integrates with the visual storylines.

"Something to keep in mind is that the way I have scripted this, EVERY SENTENCE, sometimes even every phrase in a sentence, has its own complete and total significance. So you can read SLOWLY. Not like an audiobook. Give each sentence, each phrase even, it's own particular significance."

Also if the script is too long, then please take a section from each which will show best your qualities.

I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Script Details

*It is for the narration of a film made from the book entitled ******************************************************************************** which is a non-religious moral code. PSAs were already done with the same director covering every precept of the same book (which were not narrated) and these can be seen (to get a feel for this director's approach) on You Tube by typing **********.

Sample script provided for auditions:

Today’s children will become tomorrow’s civilization. Bringing a child into the world today is a little bit like dropping one into a tiger’s cage. Children can’t handle their environment and they have no real resources. They need love and help to make it.

It is a delicate problem to discuss. There are almost as many theories on how to raise a child or not raise them as there are parents. Yet, if one does it wrong, much grief can result and one may even complicate his or her own later years.

Some try to raise children the way they were themselves raised, others attempt the exact opposite, many hold to an idea that children should just be let grown on their own. None of these guarantee success. The last method is based on a materialistic idea that the development of the child parallels the evolutionary history of the race; that in some magical way, unexplained, the “nerves” of the child will “ripen” as he or she grows older and the result will be a moral, well-behaving adult. Although the theory is disproven with ease – simply by noticing the large criminal population whose nerves somehow did not ripen, it is a lazy way to raise children and achieves some popularity. It doesn’t take care of your civilization’s future or your older years.



Sometimes others seek to crush one down, to make nothing out of one’s hopes and dreams, one’s future and oneself.

By ridicule and many other means, another who is evil-intentioned toward one can try to bring about one’s decline.

For whatever reason, efforts to improve oneself, to become happier in life, can become the subject of attacks.

It is sometimes necessary to handle such directly. But there is a long-range handling that seldom fails.

What, exactly, are such people trying to do to one? They are trying to reduce one downward.

They must conceive that one is dangerous to them in some way: that if one got up in the world, one could be a menace to them. So, in various ways, such seek to depress one’s talents and capabilities.

Some madman even have a general plan that goes like this: “If A becomes more successful, A could be a menace to me; therefore I must do all I can to make A less successful.” It never seems to occur to such that their actions might make an enemy out of A even though he was no enemy before. It can be classed as an almost certain way for such madmen to get into trouble. Some do it just from prejudice or because they “don’t like someone.”

But however it is attempted, the real object of such is to make their target grow less and fail in life.

The real handling of such a situation and such people, the real way to defeat them is to flourish and prosper.

Oh, yes, it is true that such people, seeing one improve his lot, can become frantic and attack all the harder. The thing to do is handle them if one must but don’t give up flourishing and prospering, for that is what such people want you to do.

If you flourish and prosper more and more, such people go into apathy about it: they can give it up completely.

If one’s aims in life are worthwhile, if one carries them out with some attention to the precepts in this book, if one flourishes and prospers, one certainly will wind up the victor. And, hopefully, without harming a single hair on their heads.

And that is my wish for you:
flourish and prosper!
