Project Main Details

Animated Infographic Voice Over School Project 
I am a student at SCAD creating an animated information graphic for a project. The focus of this piece will be on a new law passed in North Carolina called HB2. The visuals will have bathroom imagery (such as toilet paper rolling across the floor, a foggy mirror above a sink) and the visuals will portray numbers related to the new law. If you are transgender, it does not matter what type of voice you have, as this is by and for transgender people (I am transgender).

Script Details

(Tone throughout is very matter-of-fact, with an underlying anger, so there is a slight edge to the voice as it is being read. Voice over really needs to help emphasize that this law is discriminatory and wrong, without being over emotional. Each number that is said needs to have emphasis within its sentence.)

House Bill 2 was a bill passed in to law, this bill was introduced solely to stop a city ordinance passed earlier in Charlotte that was created to legally protect LGBTQ people from discrimination. [Pause].

This included transgender people being protected in the bathroom they felt most comfortable in. HB2 reversed the ordinance, making it legal to discriminate against LGBTQ people, and forcing transgender people to use the bathroom that aligned with their birth certificate, rather than their identity. [Pause].

In numbers: [Pause].

In the house, the representatives had 5 minutes to read the bill before debating on whether or not it should be passed. [Pause].

The general public was given only 35 minutes of testimony before the house of representatives. [Pause].

Of those able to speak, only 3 were transgender people. [Pause].

0 transgender students were allowed to speak. [Pause].

And 0 transgender people of color were allowed to speak. [Pause].

The house voted in favor of the bill, and it went to the senate. Every democratic senator walked out in protest, knowing they were outnumbered. The bill passed 32 to 0. [Pause].

That night, the governor signed the bill into law. [Pause].

HB2 was signed in to law less than 12 hours after being unveiled to the public. [Pause].

The Governor claims this law would protect people, namely women and children, from predators using the restroom under the guise that they are transgender. In reality, all he did was put transgender people in harm’s way. [Pause].

70% of transgender people in the US have experienced harassment in the bathroom. [Pause].

In the US, 0 transgender people have ever been arrested for sexual misconduct in a public bathroom. [Pause].

In fact, far more US lawmakers have been arrested under such charges. [Pause].

This new law is discriminatory and puts transgender people in harm’s way. It also has hurt North Carolina economically. [Pause].

There has been an estimated $100,000 loss in travel and tourism jobs, a $6.3 billion loss in visitor spending, and the special session they created to discuss the bill in the first place cost the state $42,000 a day. The cost only rises, with new companies and entertainers boycotting the state every day. [Pause].

In summary; [Pause].

House Bill 2 is shit.
