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.
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[…]
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),[…]
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[…]
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[…]
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,[…]
Speaking of Martin, here’s a nice piece that we worked on for Red Deluxe and their client, Youth Villages. Along with the excellent visuals, that’s yours truly doing the non-announcer voice over, with some really nice licensed music and subtle sound design.
“How young are you? / How old am I?” Remember that song? How about “Lay It Down Clown?” Well, if either of these songs rings a bell, then quit reading this post. Why? Because it’s too late. Oh, you aging, left-of-the-dialist. Your day is up. I bet your ears are still ringing from that[…]
Good news from our friends at River Road Creative. It looks like the “Meth Sucks” tv they produced with us last year won four gold Addys at regionals this year! Way to go, River Road and yay us! For more on the “Meth Sucks” Anti-Meth campaign as well as the District 7 ADDY awards, follow[…]
So, last month, we went on location to help That Guy From Riverfest with a mobile recording. And yes, this involved much more than taping the lav mic to his chest, thank you very much. Live recordings are always exciting and this project was no exception. We were glad to hear that everything turned out[…]
Perhaps this is a better Valentine’s post than the previous. It’s got hearts galore. There’s even a heart in the trees! Plus it gives us a chance to show off some recent work – we cast and cut the VO and mixed it with a custom piece of music from Sellout. Once again, it’s a[…]
