Contest 2011.01.28 - 2011.02.04

Contest Title:

The King's Speech

Director's Notes:

Award Season is heating up! So pretend you get an email from your agent that says: "Hey there. I got a call from the casting office handling the voice over spots for the Oscars this year. They enjoyed your demo and think you might be a good fit for one of their spots, specifically the extended introductions for the best picture nominees. Please record the script below with a full slate (name, date and title of project) before your audition. Thanks."

Script:

After the death of King George V and the abdication of King Edward VIII, Bertie who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life, is suddenly crowned King of England. With his country on the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, he arranges to see an eccentric speech therapist, Lionel Logue. After a rough start, the two delve into an unorthodox course of treatment and eventually form an unbreakable bond. With the support of Logue, his family, and his government, the King will overcome his stammer and deliver a radio-address that inspires his people and unites them in battle.

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.
