This year was the kickoff of Eric Rob and Isaac’s new outreach, Brand Camp. A week long day camp for middle-schoolers to be immersed in the day-to-day goings on of agency life. Three teams kids worked on pitches all week and on Friday presented their work to the client. We were lucky enough to have[…]
Occasionally we get the casting call for authentic British voice talent. Sure, we can hook up with talent across the pond via the internets these days. But we also have a right talented bloke here in town. Check out Butler_612’s demo on our casting page. Last time he was here he brought us the fixings[…]
Hey. We are a small business. So we are all for Small Business Saturday! Here’s the :30 and :15 radio we produced for the Cox “Small Business Saturday” campaign. It’s like the TV but different. Hats off to our announcer Bob_222 for making these sound great! agency: ghost
Well.. casting this wasn’t triple tuff. The client needed the voice of a baseball-cap wearing DIYer. We’ve got quite a few guys who fit that bill but Dave_296 booked the job. And got ‘er done! agency: red deluxe
For a new series of Nebraska Tourism videos aimed at a younger generation, our client was looking for “a young, energetic, and relatively high pitched female.” Wouldn’t that be nice? Well, we found her. AJ is one of our up and coming superstars around here. And she really got a chance to hone her announcer[…]
It goes without saying that the Ice Bucket Challenge was an enormous success. Our very own Scott Minor got to say thank you for the ALS Association as the announcer in this official video tribute from the national, non-profit organization.
Jacob had a copy of the Disintegration Loops when he was here. The album packaging was as monumental as the loops themselves. I’ve pulled the loops up on Spotify for a listen today in observance of 9/11. I can think of no better requiem. This article from Haunted Ink explains this music better than I[…]
Peanut M&Ms. So true.
Check it out, PBS sampled two audio clips from Scott’s College for America VO. Very cool. In the transcript he’s listed as Narrator but we know it’s Scott. Here’s the full video if you are interested in either this innovative program and/or Scott’s narration style:
Ran across this today. I think I’ve seen this somewhere…
Ft Campbell 2% Auto Loan TV from Steve Jones on Vimeo. It’s almost March which means one thing here at the Lucky Dog blog – it’s time to dust off the soderbergicon. First up, we were tickled orange-starburst to hear that our buddy Steve Jones at DDK won a Gold ADDY for this handsome Fort[…]
In addition to our regularly scheduled work, Scott has been posting audio for the Pre-Post Humanist‘s new “Reading Out Loud” series. These are awesome stories, and not just because Scott mixes them. You’ll have to check ’em out to see what I mean. Follow them here and here.
Interesting video and article about text-to-speech technology. Should voice talent really be nervous about this? Yes, the companies are getting better at making synthesized speech sound more human but there ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby. And, maybe it’s just me, but in the video, Allison Duffy sounds robotic to my ears. Even though[…]
Here’s our submission for the WBEZ sonic logo contest. Wish us luck! I saw the announcement for the contest on Tumblr last Friday so over the weekend I did a little field recording. The melody was played via my trusty Qchord. And the VO is Scott.
I walked in the front door today to be surprised by new art on our walls! Kaboom. These amazing painting are on loan from Jan Bennet-Troutt and bring a refreshing jolt of color and texture to our downstairs walls. But wait. There’s more. These are not only paintings. These are also sound panels. That’s right.[…]
So, we are a little late mentioning something here at the Lucky Dog blog. In case you didn’t know, our audio shop of two is now a shop of three. Meet Jacob! We were lucky enough to meet Jacob last summer and he’s been working part-time here ever since. We couldn’t be more pleased to[…]
