Project Main Details

WINGS TO FLY Alas Para Volar 
The footage was all shot in the highlands of Guatemala on the border with Mexico. The area is remote and destitute from any support or help. The nonprofit that does work there aims to provide food, sanitation and education for children. While also providing support groups, microfinance and guidance with the parents – specifically the moms.

I want emotional / real Spanish-accented English delivery of a mother discussing hopes/dreams/realities of her daughter's life. Looking for unique voice. A cool voice. Attract the viewer.

I really like this sample link:
Obviously not British accented, but the delivery / tone / pauses / 'care' in the voice is truly felt by the viewer.

I really like this sample link delivery as well:
Obviously not a man's voice, but the delivery / tone / pauses / expression / and 'care' in the voice stands out.

This isn't the usual NGO or commercial type of video. It's much more narrative / passionate / almost experimental. The story has a parallel metaphor of a hummingbird needing nectar to fly. Similar to a child needing education/nutrition to fly.

Please read the script using your skill for voice over, but let me 'feel' the words. I also want the viewer to feel the 'change' in the mother as she grows within the 3 parts of the narrative:

1 - Mother questions what to tell her daughter / the sad realities of her own life / what future holds for her daughter.
2 - Mother narrates her daughters life / what to expect / how this NGO is helping her daughter
3 - Mother discovers the answer of what to tell her daughter.

Script Details

WINGS TO FLY / Alas Para Volar


What do you tell your children in the highlands of Guatemala about their future?

The remote ones. The vulnerable ones left behind.

The ones who live day to day.

That they’ll grow to have easy lives?

That the odds are in their favor?


Like a hummingbird with no nectar, they lack strong wings to fly.

My sweet daughter Ana.

I dream of where you could soar.



Another morning begins,.

Like all mothers, I want my child to have a better chance at life.

So with little means – we do what little things we can – in hopes of providing for that future.

A future with no hunger, sickness, or being unprepared for whats to come.

My heart wants to shelter you every step of the way.

But my mind knows you need to be ready.

Your teacher is your ally and wants you to succeed.

I’m happy you have this ally at your age.

I never did.

And as mothers we now have allies in each other. And the bonds we’ve forged in this space give us strength.

And lets us provide for you all.

Little one, I want you to be healthy.

Have a meal to eat.

Enough energy to learn and grow.

As people of this land

Use the nature around you.

And as you walk in my steps… (SFX Breath)

I think to myself.

Maybe that’s what I tell my daughter…

Despite the odds,

You now have a better chance to go further.

Do something different.

Soak in all that is around you.

Like a hummingbird,

Drink the nectar of opportunities you’ve been given,

grow your wings,

and fly high above.
