Job Description

Narrator needed for documentary that takes a long hard look at America's financial and soci-political woes and asks the tough question:

Is America done? Is the Empire collapsing?

We seek a warm, serious voice that is NOT to dramatic and over the top but is definitely serious enough that the audience will listen.

There are about 15 small paragraphs in all.

If possible, please read the following lines as part of your audition.


It is regarded as the mightiest superpower that the world has ever known,....


and our American leaders,...never let us forget it:

(b roll clips of leaders saying:
how strong we are
how wealthy we are
how free we are
and then again, how wealthy we are)


But is the United States of the 21st Century as wealthy, strong, and as free as our leaders like to claim? Could it be that despite their rhetoric, our beloved country is in fact not succeeding but instead, on the verge of political, social and financial collapse? Asked simply, is The United States of America, the world's mightiest nation, on it's deathbed and about to fall....


September 2008. The world is shocked to witness the collapse of some of America's wealthiest and strongest companies:
Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, AIG, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Other giants of finance, while not destroyed are crippled to the point of near failure

The crisis effects the entire world but the U.S. is hit hardest. As our government scrambles to try and save itself (images: BAILOUT FOOTAGE), the banks hoard what little money they have on deposit and credit becomes impossible to secure. But this crisis, the worst since the Great Depression, was only the first financial storm to hit the U.S., unfortunately experts predict there to be 3 other storms on horizon. But before we can understand what is to come, we first should understand what is happening today, Financial Storm #1: "The Derivative Death Trap"
