Just to clear things up. Say you are in bed with your wife watching TV. And you see this new Las Vegas ad. And you’re like, “Hold up… rewind… I know that announcer!” And your wife is like, “No… you don’t.” So you rewind it and watch it again… and again… and again like, maybe,[…]
So… we experienced some extreme winter weather during the holiday break. Thankfully we never lost power here at the studio and were thus able to help our friends at Entergy produce some Public Service Announcements addressing power outages in the area. Here’s a pic of Oscar Washington, the Director of Customer Service for Entergy Arkansas,[…]
Happy Holidays from the crew at Lucky Dog: Scott, Charles, & Jacob
Here at Lucky Dog, we work with a pretty large network of voice actors, and one of the things that allows me to help with direction and communication is that I spend some time on that side of the glass myself. A friend had pointed out ACX.com to me some time ago, but I hadn’t[…]
Being a dog friendly business, we hold an organization like the Humane Society near and dear to our hearts. In the past we’ve donated audio work for the Pulaski County Humane Society. Today, we donated our lobby. This was another situation where our couches proved to be more important than us. But that’s fine. Anything[…]
So. Ahem. Yesterday was National Poetry Day. Yeah. Bet you forgot too. So, here’s a poem called At Roane Head that I’ve read and re-read and re-re-read. And every time it gives me the shivers. If helps if you know a little bit about Selkies. (Full disclosure, I knew NOTHING about Selkies until I read[…]
Good stuff from Doug – this is the Monsters Calling Home video they shot, recorded, and performed inside their Hondas. Wowzers. I feel sorry for their drummer. This reminds me of the time we booked a revision with a voice talent who was on vacation. He had to drive to a hot spot he found[…]
Our buddy Jeff directed us to this bit of SNL goodness from last weekend. Good stuff.
We recorded some SICK horn parts today. PVC-ophone at Lucky Dog by redchuck Yeah. This was how we created items number 5 and numer 8 (smiley emoticon) from the following list of audio cues a friend of our’s needed for a stage production. here is what I am looking for sir. 1) Preshow w/Q&A 2)[…]
It’s the audio production equivalent of “make the logo bigger.” In my 20 years of production, I’ve never heard a spot I mixed on the air in which the music competed with the VO, but I’ve heard plenty that made me wonder why we bothered to put music in the spot. It has to do[…]
Fire wood chirping by redchuck I captured this at home with my Iphone using SoundCloud’s app. We had a fire going and suddenly I heard birds chirping. I ran over to the fireplace worried that we were smoking-out a birds nest in the chimney. Turns out it was the wood… chirping??? Weird. Can you hear[…]
Things I googletubed after reading Pulphead by John Jeremiah Sullivan:
Somehow I completely missed Colin Stetson‘s 2011 release New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges until it started showing up on people’s end-of-the-year best-of lists. What to say? Dude’s a monster. Also engineer Efrim Menuck, producer Shahzad Ismaily and other producer Ben Frost did an amazing job capturing and mixing this. From what I’ve read, something like[…]
I may be late to the party, but this is my new regular listen. Nonesuch Radio
Yeah. I wish Alasadir Gray had created this for us. Nope. They are going in Hillhead subway station in Glasgow, Scotland. Oh well. They are certainly cool. As is this short video from the Guardian wherein Alasdair… ahem… excuse me… *achoo*… wherein…. *cough*… ahem… wherein Alasdair describes the murals.
The Socrates of San Francisco: Howard Luck Gossage from ETIO on Vimeo. I think Martin Wilford first mentioned Howard Gossage to me. Check out this trailer for the as yet uncompleted documentary. I’d love to see the finished product.
