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[…]
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)[…]
