So a couple of days ago I record this nice three minute video for a large foreign manufacturer's board of directors meeting, with lots of mucketymucks in attendance, celebrating their 50th year in business. It's a miracle they survived and are now thriving. Lots of exclamation points Exclamation throughout the script. I give it appropriate but not overdone enthusiasm. I gather this will be a consecutive sound track for English speakers.

I get a rush email a little while ago. Some board people feel it is too "advertorial", so slow it down, tone it down. Please re-read.

And my favorite request? - "Try to avoid sounding too much American".

Roger Wilco, dude.

I have a client that produces theme park commercials. The last session we did was for a new, scary roller coaster. The direction was this,
"I want you to scare the kids so much they HAVE to ride this ride"
