Project Main Details

The Secret of Isla Mujeres 
The project is a short film (5min) documentary-style about a commercial fisherman in Isla Mujeres, Mexico who is turned conservationist by joining an ecotourism company; it will be used for submission into amature short film contests, with the goal of generating exposure for a potentially larger project.

The fisherman is a middle aged Mexican male "man of the sea" type who I interviewed in the field. Unfortunately the audio track from the interview is unuseable, and will need replacement.

The project will require one male to translate the English script from that interview into Spanish (Mexican dialect) and provide a finished voice over track (MP3 or WAV) in Spanish of the fisherman's voice.

It will also require one adult female voice to provide the finished "translation" track in English (MP2 or WAV). While she is speaking English, her bilingual ability needs to be readily apparent in her voice to authenticate the translation.

Script Details

The fisherman is a middle aged Mexican male "man of the sea" type who I interviewed in the field 
Script exerpt:

Rojelio (male in Spanish, female in English):

My name is Rojelio, and I live in Isla Mujeres.

I was a commercial fisherman for twenty years. But for the last few years it was no good, there was not enough fish.

Now for five years, I have a different job. I still find many fish, but I no longer have to take them out from the sea
