Contest 2010.12.03 - 2010.12.10

Contest Title:

Ellis Island

Director's Notes:

Pretend that a documentary film maker emails this to you: "Hi. My name is Emily McCormick and I'm making a documentary about Ellis Island. The film will focus on the history of the island and also the personal stories of several immigrant families that passed through it, so an emotional connection to the text is incredibly important. I enjoyed listening to your demo and liked the quality of your voice. If you are interested in being a part of the project please audition by submitting an audio sample of the script below. No slate needed."

Script:

For many immigrants, the voyage to Ellis Island meant selling all personal possessions plus additional debt, just to buy the fare. After weeks crowded into the claustrophobic steerage of a ship on the stormy Atlantic, Ellis Island represented the final hurdle to The American Dream.

Remember to check Archived Contests next Friday to learn who won, with explanations of why they won and why others didn’t, and hear some examples of each.
