90 second motion graphic Book Trailer for Youtube 
Looking for the right voice for a book trailer to be used on YouTube. The book is called "Famous Stutterers: Twelve Inspiring People who Achieved Great Things while Struggling with an Impediment".

The video will primarily be motion graphics/animation. 90 seconds. Will consider a voice with a slight English accent, although no guarantee of that choice.

The book is aimed at all-audiences. Voice should be animated with LIFE, yet sophisticated, clearly spoken, and not over-the-top or cartoony. The full recording should be quick and clear, but not too fast that there is mumbling. Must fit within 90-seconds.

Despite the fact this is a female, we like the candid, well-read voice for this piece:
But would also considering something with a bit more energy.

Small budget of only $100. Full buyout.

Script Details

Imagine if you were the narrator of this video. But for every word you had to pronounce, there was fear that a letter or sound could make you stutter.

There are an estimated 3 MILLION people in the United States who stutter. Worldwide, the number is a staggering 70 MILLION, and it affects males four times more than females.

Throughout history, a number of famous individuals faced a handicap that could have been debilitating, but went on to accomplish great things in life.

Let’s go way, waaaaay back to burning bushes and stone tablets. Yes, Moses--one of the most important religious leaders of all time--he was a stutterer.

Then there’s Aristotle. One of the most famous and important philosophers of all time, scholars have known for a long time that he had a speech defect.

Perhaps the most famous stutterer, thanks to the 2010 movie “A King’s Speech”, is King George VI. He overcame his unruly tongue to lead England and give important speeches during war with Germany.

But enough with old, wise men! Stuttering affects even the most beautiful in the world. Marilyn Monroe, with her breathy sexy voice, probably used slow and deliberate speaking to help avoid stuttering.

The book “Famous Stutterers” profiles these four, plus eight other well-known people who accomplished great things despite their impediment.

The persistence and courage these famous people displayed tells us that there are ways we too can survive and achieve--despite our own serious difficulties.
