James Madison Documentary Trailer 
ZD1505262
This is the trailer for a documentary to tell the untold story behind one of the founding fathers, James Madison, and his 1818 speech called the "Address to the Agricultural Society of Albemarle." In a nutshell, this speech was calling for a new ethic of stewardship and better management of the land that had been ravaged by tobacco-growing. The voice over should not be overly theatrical but still give the feeling of historical magnitude. The voice-over is paired with sweeping visuals, aerials of James Madison's estate, Montpelier, and the grand forest and animals that live there. We also want the voice-over to convey a certain warmth and love for nature and the environment. The pacing is fairly slow to allow an audience to grasp the meaning even where the language is very old-fashioned. Note that this is just the trailer. If the documentary is commissioned by a TV network further services at a higher rate could be commissioned.

WHEN OUR ANCESTORS ARRIVED, THEY

FOUND THE TREES OF THE FOREST THE GREAT

OBSTACLE TO THEIR SETTLEMENT AND

CULTIVATION. THE GREAT EFFORT WAS OF

COURSE TO DESTROY THE TREES.


SUCH HAS BEEN THE INCONSIDERATE AND

INDISCRIMINATE USE OF THE AXE, THAT THIS

COUNTRY IS BEGINNING TO FEEL THE

CALAMITY AS MUCH AS SOME OF THE OLD

COUNTRIES OF EUROPE; AND IT WILL SOON BE

FORCED TO UNDERSTAND THE DIFFICULTY OF

CURING IT.
