This happy campaign for Capitol Federal is such a great way to start the new year. Here’s to more happiness and laughter in 2015!
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.
One of our most memorable characters to cast this year has been “Henry” for the Mutual Fund Store. Henryhenryhenry. Henry’s a bit of a grouch. He just doesn’t give a flip anymore. And why should he? He’s retiring. In other spots in this campaign we’ve heard Henry talk sports, give a wedding speech, and wax[…]
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.
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[…]
The featured image for this post is how our favorite online collage generator imagines one of the couples featured in the Capitol Federal Fall Lending Radio campaign we produced this week. Not bad work there, Net.Art Generator. Maybe you robots are OK after all. More importantly, hats off to the humans that put this together.[…]
Love the way this brand video for Ft Campbell Credit Union turned out! Casting, music licensing, sound design, and final mix was all done here at the Dog. And the voice talent is one of our favorite Chicago bluesman, Big Llou Johnson.
Check out these two new :60 spots for Luba Worker’s Comp. we produced last month. These spots feature loads of under-the-big-top sound design and several fun, situational cameos by colorful circus characters. Interestingly enough, one of the toughest elements to create in this production was the sound of the “Wheel of a Thousand Knives.” We ended[…]
Since 2009, we’ve been helping Sport Clips with their “Help a Hero” radio and tv fundraising campaign. This program helps soldiers connect with their families via “free call days to deployed and hospitalized American service members.” As reported by the VFW, this year’s goal is to raise $500,000 and we hope our media has helped[…]
Here it is, at long last, a new post featuring some new radio spots! We had a lot of fun producing these spots this summer. Why? Well, first check out “Obsession.” It features six characters. That’s right, six characters in one spot! There’s “Ice Cream Girl,” then there’s “Checker” (as in a Grocery Store Checker),[…]
Here’s another TV spot we helped to cast and score. This spot was running a lot during the Olympics so I saw it a bunch this August. After many viewings I have to say I still really like what our announcer did with that last line, “Only in Arkansas.” Nailed the landing. 16.5!
For “Baptist Memorial Health Care – 100 Years of Care” we needed to cast a big voice… an important voice, a voice…for the ages. Someone that could evoke the Greatest Generation… and more. I think we found the right guy. Lest we forget, the right piece of music was also an integral part of this[…]
INTRUST Mobile Deposit from Burly Studios on Vimeo. This Intrust Mobile Banking spot was a snap. Besides the camera sounds we also added various SFX to help mark each scene – “Bacon Frying in Pan” for the kitchen, “mono sfx 03” for the Newton’s Cradle in the office, “Sorrento, Italy: Cafe Ambience: Medium Crowd, Heavy[…]
Sound design? Yes. We do sound design. And sometime we get to lay down fun, whimsical sound design, like the BOOM and the disco ball’s servo motor and the typewriter’s clackety clack and the various other what-nots that we added to these Arkansas Department of Higher Education videos for their recent Come Back 2 Go[…]
As you can see, this month, we had the pleasure of meeting John Philpot of AETN’s Arkansas Outdoors. John came in from the wilds of Arkansas to record the following radio spot: Morsoy Radio Though an avid outdoorsman, John is no stranger to the interior of a vocal booth. In talking to him about his[…]
We recently had the pleasure of producing a series of radio spots for our friends at Stone Ward for Sport Clips, who position themselves as “America’s haircut place for men and boys.” Now, I was not quite thirty when my receding hairline pushed me into my current haircut “style”, a word I use loosely. Nowadays,[…]
