Project Main Details

Manhattan Beach Education Foundation 
This is a buyout - we need to record the opening of a video that will be shown to get people to donate to the foundation. We've tried a bunch of male VO, but not loving them. As the production company we are donating our time. We're looking for a warm, believable female. Not too syrupy, more like an intelligent, informed friend.

We went the Fiverr route (sorry it's a pro-bono gig for us). You obviously get what you pay for.

Here's a few examples - The first is our latest Rough Cut: (we're still messing with music)

This was a previous option, and this is me doing the scratch track.

Script Details

Manhattan Beach. One of the most coveted beach communities in America.

Median home price is over 2.3 million.

So why do we need community support for our schools?

Let’s look at how our schools are funded.

Compared to other states, California funding for education is inadequate.

We’re 44th in the nation in per pupil funding,

…and 50th in student-to-teacher

and student-to-counselor ratios.

Manhattan Beach is a Revenue Limit District, which means that only a small portion of our property taxes support our schools.

The formula to allocate property tax dollars is based spending levels in the 1970's. Back then, MBUSD was a K through 8 district and allocated approximately 20% of property taxes to schools.

Basic Aid Districts like Palo Alto and Laguna Beach funded education at a higher level, so they retain their property taxes.

Our student population does not qualify for additional funding through LCFF, and as a result, we receive less state funding than ANY other district in California.

Finally, unlike these other high performing districts, Manhattan Beach does not have a Parcel Tax, which is a flat tax that supplements state funding for education.

The Manhattan Beach Education Foundation is the only resource we have to supplement funding for teachers and enrichment across our seven schools.
