They’re all safe….the Well Dunne! Talent voices that live and work in Mexico City. LILIANA DE MIGUEL, who not only announces but also translates (take note you NBC folks who have the Spanish side to deal with) had to walk 6 miles home, but her place was OK, if not glass-less. The windows in DF were major victims. CHRIS SMITH had a duble whammy….the quake shook things up but didn’t do major damage in Mexico. However, he lives part time in Houston, and there was flooding. When the quake hit, he reported the very first piece on CNN out of Mexico in English that day… in front of the fallen General Hospital. Both are very grateful. Well Dunne!
Talk about a perfect day. Take picture perfect LA weather…mix in the amazing GEORGIA SCOTT and DENNIS FITCH of The Agency…add a lunch of great food but better conversation and ideas…and that, my friends, is why one of us is very happy.

It takes a lot of guts to bet on your own talents. And there’s nothing more rewarding, even when the rewards can be a bit tight monetarily. Creatives in entertainment marketing have all the know-how, verve and knowledge to make an amazing impact on their own. The latest intrepid soul to shake things up is BRAD CRUM, now doing business under his own banner: Brad Crum Creative. He’s got it goin’ on in all mediums, so hit him up for work that will definitely work. He will, indeed, miss the good folks at FOX DC where he’s been promoting both their stations. Brad’s background includes time at CBS Network in LA. Yeah, he’s that good. Well Dunne! Brad.
Cinco de Mayo…what a great excuse to bring attention to two of the best Spanish/English voice talents you could use….Liliana de Miguel, who lives in Mexico City and translates like someone who works at the University, which she does….and Chris Smith who lives in Houston AND DF (which is how the folks in Mexico City refer to themselves). Don’t get stung with bad talent or bad translations. Happy Cinco…or as MANNY DE LA ROSA would say, Cinco de Manny!
Our own Promo Cowboy, BARRY FITZSIMMONS, who is amazing on so many creative levels, has finally gotten his marketing Podcast going (someone writing this might be a guest one day….) and you should check it out. Click here. And it’s a good one with BILL HARTNETT…another major favorite!
Have you noticed the A-listers who are voicing spots…not appearing on camera, but voicing? God bless Ken Levine, one of my favorite writers (imdb him) and his take on why this is NOT a good idea and why you need to rethink voice choices. Of course, you should think Well Dunne! first, but you know that already because you’re fabulous….
