Selma March, MLK film casting voice actors

ABOUT THE PROJECT:

The film tells the dramatic and historic story of the 1965 Selma voting rights campaign, and the subsequent march to Montgomery, Alabama. You may be aware that the feature film Selma, produced by Oprah Winfrey, hits theatres later this month. The focus of our documentary is the instrumental role that young people played in the voting rights campaign.

We’re looking for voice over actors to read the parts of the former African American high school students who were interviewed for the film. There are several parts – a few high school sounding males, and one or two high school sounding females. We are looking for actors who can read in an authentic sounding southern accent, not an over the top stereotype.

Payment: Paid

City or Location of call: Nationwide
