Job Description

Good day to all,

Attached is a brief poem (a word doc).

This is a segment in a promotional video for a Northern California school. Inspiration came from an Apple commercial a year or so ago. Here's the link:

Our poem has been sculpted not as an imitation of the great work of Maya Angelou, but solely as a result of her inspiration.

For those who choose, I hope you'll be patient with the attached poem. Feel it. Speak it. We're not on a search for an announcer. We're hoping for an empathetic story teller. Someone to speak with and to the viewer.

The goal of the video is to give viewers an insight into the work the school is doing and the quality of students/human beings they’re turning out. Leaders, thinkers, global citizens. The audience will be community members and potential families who may be considering this school for their child.

We'll see face shots of students. Looking directly into the camera. The music will be simple piano and strings. The feel will be very Apple-like.

I hope you find the above description helpful and very much look forward to your interpretation of our poem.

Many thanks!
