I voiced this trailer for an Amazon Video apocalypse flick called “The Last” a while ago. So it’s, you know, FUN! Just recently heard back from the client that it was finally greenlighted. Such is Hollywood, or Atlanta, or wherever they’re making movies these days. Which is just about everywhere as production companies and studios seek out higher incentives and lower taxes.
Today’s production tip is for renaming regions in Pro Tools using keyboard shortcuts and what to do if at first the shortcut doesn’t respond. There’s always a reason for little things like this. I recently set up a new computer and all my settings were wiped out, and I’m still finding little gremlins in my workflow. Been there? Thought so.
The producer on this project for Battleface Travel Insurance wanted a movie trailer delivery with a little self-awareness and a touch of tongue-in-cheekiness. Far be it from me to miss out on a chance to be movie trailer guy.
This horrifying dystopian scene is Werner Herzog’s retelling of his experience at Trader Joe’s market which was actually written by Paul F. Tomkins in a satirical review intended to reflect Herzog’s less-than-cheery persona. Click here for an article on Tomkins and the review and Herzog’s reaction upon finding out about it. It’s not for the faint of heart or those with a fear of crowds, confined spaces or humanity in general. Werner wrote the review. I did the voice, sound design and ambient music. The performance is not an impression of Herzog, but was inspired by the fake review.
