Metronomic

This recent Soybean radio spot for Valent gave us the chance to build some tension with a metronome. Here’s the SFX cues from the script: SFX: Metronome continues. Other percussive instruments layer in.
 

SFX: More instruments layers in, we’re going from an isolated tick-tock to a pulsing cadence. 

SFX: Full crescendo. Almost like a march.[…]

Cotton

It’s always cool helping our clients win awards. Check out the NAMA awards Archer Malmo raked in last year! Doubly cool is John_316’s low-key, conversational, non-announcer announcer VO bringing home the bacon… er… cotton… on this video for the Cotton Board’s “Renew Your Faith in Cotton” Agribusiness Campaign.

RADDY

Our first ADDY… I mean, RADDY… for 2016 is this Silver radio winner we produced for Zehnder Communications in Nashville for Stevi B’s Pizza Buffet. The trick to casting this announcer was finding an “edgy” guy who could turn up the smile just a skosh with the “Then it hits you” line. Nice work, Robert.[…]

Well Ahead

Well Ahead LA from Zehnder on Vimeo. Here’s an instance where our sound desingn and casting walked hand in hand. Not only did we cast the announcer for these spots but we also created all of the sports audio footage. The assignment was to make it sound like we had lifted NAT sound from locker[…]

Carti’s New Home

This year, we helped the Carti Cancer Center promote their new treatment center by casting and recording the VO for their 2015/16 TV and Radio spots. The wanted a “unique” voice with a “quiet confidence.” Catherine was the perfect fit.

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[…]

Memphis Football TV 2014

Mix. Sweeten. Call it what you will. We worked on these. But the magic in these spots is in the voices. These three players have conviction. Linebacker Charles Harris. Tailback Brandon Hayes. Cornerback Bobby McCain. These guys mean it. You can hear it. Hats off to the agency for letting their words breathe.

MyFuture@Work

Our friends at 360º filmworks just posted links to the new UALR campaign that we worked on. Our job was to record the student testimonials, license music for each of the four spots, and mix the final results. The spots do a handsome job of incorporating the look and immediacy of social media. We enjoyed[…]
