Warchild – Just Listen
I do the narration for this podcast, by Warchild, made in association with singer-songwriter Damien Rice and Spotify. It brings an unheard, hair-raising war story of little Jasmine from Aleppo, Syria to life. Being There is the agency behind this short 3D audio documentary podcast.
This podcast gives the listener an unbelievable three-dimensional experience. As a listener, you see and feel everything that Jasmine felt when she had to flee the war-struck Syria and had to endure an unbearable trauma (which she is still coping with) amidst the pitch Black Sea – a journey from hell to hope.
War Child’s aim is to make people around the world realize the ordeal kids have to deal with in war-prone landscapes and the difficulty in adjusting to their new surroundings in new countries. It’s because the war continues to haunt them. It’s War Child’s appeal to the world to help these kids with development aid because while the war is over for them physically, mentally it’s still on.
The Irish singer-songwriter, Damien Rice has also recorded 3 songs in 3D, all of which make these unheard stories all the more immersive. Moreover, the sound effects and brilliant storytelling are so communicable that they at once grab you by the throat and leave you punch-drunk with mouth agape. (From Campaigns of the world.)
