My friends at CBS Maxpreps usually have me do voice-overs for their videos, however they saw some of my video editing skills and asked if I’d be interested in producing a video for them. Of course, I took on the challenge and used my new Parallax photo animation skills along with some nice screen transitions and a multitrack audio mixdown. Mainly, it was a fun project – of course the pay was nice too. Thanks MaxPreps! 🙂
While there was nothing wrong with the PolkAudio monitors I had been using for years (in fact they sound great for final playback), I heard a pair of these KRK Rokit monitors at a friend’s voice-over studio and fell in love with them. Found this pretty blue pair of RP6 G2’s at Guitar Center a little while ago and they sound amazing. I can definitely hear everything in my mix now, and holy cow do these things have some power! 🙂
I’m also trying to make the switch from Adobe Audition to PreSonus Studio Live… although Audition is much more straight-forward and easier to work with for single mono voice-over tracks. Studio Live has some neat stuff in it and will be great for multi-track projects that I play guitar and sing on, however there appears to be a bit of learning and practice ahead to get the most out of it.
I totally forgot about my homemade Carl’s Jr. commercial that I did with my Droid Bionic last summer! This was kind of fun…
I was about to dig in to my lunch, and thought, there are never any commercials about onion rings, or fries… the “side orders” are important too. So I threw this little thing together and did the voice-over as well. A way to spend a lazy summer afternoon I guess. 🙂
Oh yeah… I shared this video on my facebook page when I made it last year, and Carl’s Jr. saw it and sent me some free $6 Burger coupons. Can’t beat that!
What have I been up to lately? Well…. I’ve been working on a movie trailer for an awesome Alfred Hitchcock type movie called “Vendetta” written by Sharon Whetstone and directed by John Fasano and it’s almost finished! This is going to be huge!!
