Project Main Details

We're going into development for a major documentary about Henry David Thoreau. During development, our company will be putting up short video clips (:60 or so) on our website of Walden Woods shot during winter, spring, summer and fall over which we will lay short voice overs of Thoreau's writing.
Ultimately we will be casting for the full length documentary, but that won't be for a while and there are no promises that whomever lands this role will get the job for the final project.

Thoreau was 25 when he wrote this about the death of his brother. If it's any help, one said of his voice “It was a staccato style of speech, every word coming separately and distinctly, as if preserving the same cool isolation in the sentence that the speaker did in society" But in the end, the voice must be accessible and not cold and detached because it would conflict with his words.

Script Details

note: "sere" is pronounced as in "here"
do not over dramatize the read. 
Sample for auditions:

“Every blade in the field—every leaf in the forest—lays down its life in season as beautifully as it was taken up…we are not saddened because particular flowers or grasses will wither—for the law of their death is the law of new life…So it is with the human plant…One might as well go into mourning for every sere leaf—but the more innocent and wiser soul will snuff a fragrance in the gales of autumn, and congratulate Nature upon her health.”

Please note that you should only use the script or your recording of it for auditioning purposes. The script is property, unless otherwise specified, of the voice seeker and it is protected by international copyright laws.
