Project Main Details

voice for animated videos economics and finance  
We are creating two 8--10 minute videos to explain the concepts in the book,****************************************************************************** It proposes a technology and approach by which new financial, economic, and governance systems could be tested and refined at the local level. You can read more at ********************************************and watch the book trailer at********************************************

The material is somewhat technical and the idea of the animation is to make it easily understandable. The goal is to create an entertaining and informative animation. The animation style will be simple, somewhat similar to The Story of Stuff (see YouTube).

The narrators voice should be mature, confident, friendly, and inviting. It should sound more like a documentary than a commercial, so the voice should not be heavily modulated.

No post-processing work is needed, just the voice. The script is ready to go.

Unfortunately, this entire project is happening on a shoestring. The book is self-published and self-promoted. Its not written for the money--in fact, a pay-what-you-can PDF copy is available on the website. I quote a price of $300 per 8--10 minute video, but it is somewhat flexible.

Script Details

The narrators voice should be mature, confident, friendly, and inviting. It should sound more like a documentary than a commercial, so the voice should not be heavily modulated.  
1. Today, many Americans are frightened and angry. We face serious financial, environmental, political, economic, and social problems. We want to pass on a better world to our children, but it looks as if the one that they will inherit may be worse than our own.

2. We can turn things around, but it will require profound change. We must share political and financial power more evenly, and give greater scrutiny to the social, environmental, and political impacts of corporations. Our financial, economic, and governance systems are in need of fundamental reform.

3. Change can be instigated through the top-down strategy, where people pressure government for greater transparency and for laws that favor the common good. But system change at the national level is politically and financially difficult, especially if vested interests oppose it. Further, people are unlikely to push for system change if they cannot point to projects where better systems have been successfully demonstrated.

4. That's why a second strategy is needed. In the bottom-up strategy, system change begins at the grassroots level and works its way up. The most practical way to bring about system change is to demonstrate it first at the local level, on a volunteer basis, and as a complement to current systems. If these demonstration projects are successful, the ideas and technologies will spread and over time integrate into the greater society.
