Job Description

This is a short video (about 7:00) aimed at elementary and high school teachers and administrators, with a secondary audience of students ages 8-16. It will appear on the Arthritis Society of Canada's website. It features children and teens on camera talking about what what its like living with juvenile arthritis and how it affects them at school. Teachers also briefly appear to speak about how they help include these students in gym class and when they are not able to keep up in some activities. There are narrated sections (that's where we need you!) between the kids' appearances on camera that either explain what juvenile arthritis is, or link sections of the video.

Our client is leaning towards a female narrator as most educators in elementary school in particular tend to be female but she is still open to a male voice that is a good fit. What we're seeking in a narrator is someone that sounds relatively young (mid 20s-mid 30s range) and can have cross-over appeal to both educators and kids who will view the video. Warm, caring, upbeat and friendly are some of the adjectives that come to mind. The kids themselves don't want to be pitied- they are positive and at times funny on camera, so while the narration text itself is fairly serious, we wouldn't want it delivered in an overly dramatic way.
