Project Main Details
I would like the script to be read documentary style, not too jovial, almost reflective, serene. The narrative will be intermixed with video interviews of archaeologists, etc. Samples of the audio will be provided to the chosen voice.
I have attached a sample of the script for demos, and once your voice is selected, a full copy of the script will be distributed. You will only need to read the sections marked "Narrator" for the demo.

Besides the home itself, perhaps no other feature merits consideration more than the mounds that flank the sides of the home. They seem a bit out of place among the rolling hills of the plantation…but are they? Perhaps they were a little more planned than you may think.
Jefferson was known for his ability to blend the old with the new, in what was known as a Palladian Style. (Pah-lay-dee-an)
Palladian style is really a Renaissance style from Andrea Palladio who was an architect in the 16th Century. He wrote a book that sort of explained all of the rules of how to design a classical architecture. And it was one of the first books that Jefferson ever bought when he was a college student, and he eventually said it was his bible.
For the mounds, let’s take another look at the image of the Palladian Villa. Now look at this image of Poplar Forest from a distance. Can you see how the mounds contribute to its Palladian design?
One of the most unique things Jefferson did here with landscape, was combine landscape and architecture together. And the two mounds that flank the house are balancing the house like wings, and if you connect them to the house with trees like Jefferson did, then you have what we call a five part Palladian plan.
Jefferson’s vision for the mounds was complete in 1811 when aspens, weeping willows and golden willows covered the mounds, thus adding to the ornamental design of the home. Eventually, however, the reality of Virginia’s harsh summers forced Jefferson to replace the willows with much more heat tolerant shrubs.
You may be wondering where all the dirt came from to create these unique features. Well, research shows that the volume of dirt in the mounds matches almost exactly the amount of dirt that was removed to create the house foundation and the sunken south lawn.
