In case I’ve NEVER sent you an actual e-mail before, I’m Ovidiu, a guy on the Film & TV Production Course in the University of Westminster. The reason I’m e-mailing you is that you might know a language spoken in one of the countries in the EU that’s NOT English, French, Italian, Hungarian or Romanian.
A group of people from my course are finishing up a VERY important project that will need all the languages spoken in the Union. The project has around 20 babies in it rapping their way through all the languages in Europe more or less – hopefully more.
The lyrics that we need translated are:
“I’d love to have a talk with every person in the world
It would be fun to see what they achieved and hear what they have learned.
We in the EU are so different, yet the same,
Music is the only way we can communicate.”
If you can by any chance record yourself or a friend that knows any of the languages from the Union, PLEASE do. As soon as you can, if possible. The quality can be whichever. We simply need to understand the accent of somebody that’s actually fluent in that language. Use a phone, a camera, a microphone. WHATEVER is within an arm’s length and records sound.
Then send it back to email@example.com
Also, I need to have these words translated with breaks in-between so fluency dosen’t kill the editing.
“Europe- European Union- music- language- future- unity- together- nations- [country name]”
If you know anyone that can help, forward this.
If not, forward anyway.
Have a great holiday wherever you are!
The translations need to be sent for (re-)recording by the 8th of August.
PLEASE help, if you can.
What we still need:
Thank you VERY much for your time!
