Spanish Video explainer for NGO. The reading had to be calm and clear to highlight the message that the illustration tries to convey.

Voice style: Spanish neutral voice acting. The narrator is the main character in this short story and I use quite a flat, emotionally detached tone to avoid the melancholy mood from becoming too melodramatic. This contrasts well with the much more emotive character voice I use for the patient.

The writer

Juan Rulfo is one of the greatest Latin American writers of the twentieth century. His stories, set in rural Mexico, combine reality and fantasy. His characters represent the daily life of the place and its socio-cultural conflicts.

 Voice Over Style: Character voice, rural Spanish accent, friendly, upbeat

In celebration of 100 Years with Juan Rulfo, I thought to voice a short extract,'Acuerdate' from his novel 'El Llano en Llamas'. 

Set in a rural environment, the man chats with his friend recalling the memories of people they Knew from their town. 

It is a great pleasure to act the role of the main character speaking here. It brings to mind people from my own town in Patagonia.
