Project Main Details
This is a mobile app audio tour focusing on the story of Texas Independence from Mexico.
Talent should be able to pronounce Spanish words. We are looking for a storyteller, not an announcer.
Texas... Its very name is synonymous with a spirit of independence; grit; and tales of men and women who stand tall - and never shrink from a challenge. But where did this remarkable cultural identity come from? It’s an identity born out of... revolution.
This is a story about events - and people - that often seem larger-than-life. Sam Houston. Santa Anna. Jim Bowie. Davy Crockett. Juan Seguín. There are the Texians; the Tejanos; the massive Mexican Army - and the ragtag band of rebels who, against all odds, defeated it. We’ll meet these people and hear their stories and, in the end, arrive at a deeper understanding of the beauty - and savagery - of the Texas Independence Experience. 2017-05-25 21:35:46 GMT 2017-06-04 16:00:00 (GMT -06:00) Central Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 23 23 0 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

Raw. Wild. Vast.
The Spanish called it el despoblado [soft second “d”]: the “uninhabited place.”
For 300 years, Spain had struggled to control the native people of Mexico’s north country – with limited success.
1821. After a decade of revolution, Mexico wins its freedom from Spanish rule.
The Mexicans who lived here in Tejas were known as Tejanos [tay-HAHN-oze] - their rugged independence molded by the landscape itself.
The new Mexican government looks to the vast, untapped spaces of Tejas – and tries to lure Mexicans to settle here. But its remoteness and harsh conditions are a tough sell: few make the move north.
On January first, 1837, there was precisely one log cabin and twelve people in Houston. Just four months later, there were more than 100 houses and a population of fifteen hundred!
For the Allen brothers – well, somehow, it all paid off. Today, the Texas Republic’s first boom-town is the fourth-largest city in the United States!
Huh. Maybe those Allen brothers knew what they were doing, after all!
CHARACTER VOICE (Slight Spanish accent): Adina de Zavala:
…the heroes died and piled the enemy before them in heaps, where the floor was shoe deep in the blood of friend and foe.
