Project Main Details

A Tutorial in the Language of Trumps Hands 
I am creating a series of 6 very short (10-45 seconds each) animations that are intended to be political satire pieces. Initially I plan on entering the videos into a local art show but afterwards, I’d like to post them to the internet. Each animated clip is a tracing of President Trump’s hands as he speaks some of his more memorable lines. To see what I mean, please watch one of these animations with a computer generated voiceover (please don’t imitate a computer voice but the pacing is about right): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HpabXiB8Lk or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zn_AUH9B2OI&feature=youtu.be or

I would like the voiceover to be that of a teacher. The voiceover is meant to “interpret” the actions of his hands in a neutral way, much like how you would speak if you we’re giving a tutorial on how to speak in sign language. Here is an example of such a tutorial: https://youtu.be/DCb7yaK1-q4?t=113

Obviously, this art could be seen a political statement so only audition if this is a concept you support. Right now I have 6 of these clips ready but I plan on making more so know that this could lead to future work.

This is a buy-out project but know that I don’t expect to make any money from these.

Lastly, here is my artist statement:
We all know President Trump says outlandish things. Then, when the media takes him at his word, it is up to his staff to interpret his statements in a more benign manner. They insist that his real supporters understand his innuendoes. However this has created an ambiguous climate for trying to understand what he means. As one reporter has said, “This is what makes covering Donald Trump so very difficult. What does he mean, when he says, ‘words?’”

So I suggest avoiding this ambiguity by translating the next most expressive part of our communication skills, hand movements. Fortunately for us, President Trump has wonderfully expressive hand movements.

A Tutorial in the Language of Trump’s Hands is a political satire that breaks down candidate, president-elect and president Trump’s hand motions so that finally, we can all understand what he means by “words.”

Script Details

How to turn bragging about being rich into a favorable trait.
Hold both hands up, palms out. Bring your hands back to you and flip hands outwards to emphasize how you don't need anybody's money. Hold left hand up, palm out. Follow up with two jabbing pointer fingers. Add a nonchalant flap of the hand to induce likability. Make the number one sign to add another point. Insist you're not bragging by waving your hand about. Point down repeatedly to make your case that this is good thinking. Then finish by holding both hands up, palms out, to bring it full circle. 
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.
