Client: Laurie Slade Funderburk for S.C. House of Representatives
Job: Campaign video voice over
Venue: Football stadium scoreboard, website, social media
Description: Client contacted me on a Thursday and was on a tight deadline, with the video portion of the 30-second ad completed but with no VO, and with ad due to be shown during a season-opener high school football game the following evening. I received the script the next morning (Friday) and provided three takes with edits by 12:30 p.m., with delivery via email. The video was ready for presentation by game time.
Client Feedback: “Scott was the perfect choice for my campaign video. Controlled, clear, and energetic, Scott’s voice projected the right amount of confidence and enthusiasm my message needed. Scott was very accommodating, turning around the product very quickly and very professionally.”
