You’ll notice, I didn’t give myself much time.
With the urging and help of VO Pro Peter O’Connell and the graphics savvy of Amy Snively, I quickly cobbled together some resources, a little assistance from my VO friends, and the whole enterprise gained some momentum.
The remarkable result was an enthusiastic response that lasted a whole month, prompted a busy website, and led to several compilation :30 and :60 PSA’s. Remember?
That website (well, most of it) can still be found at http://www.nationalvoiceovermonth.com. There, you’ll also find the compilation spots. They’re really good, if you haven’t heard them in a while…or not at all.
You’d think with a whole year to plan a sequel, I’d be able to build the Titanic. That wasn’t the case, necessarily. A few people had…well…reservations about the need for such a “holiday”. A number of seasoned pros made valuable suggestions, and I listened. I listened and I thought. I listened and I thought, and I asked for ideas.
Finally, frozen by indecision, I just began to move forward with…something. I grabbed a domain name…played with some designs, concepts, configurations, and sheesh…it all started coming together.
In the coming days, I’ll be revealing this new campaign. It’ll have a different look, theme, concept, logo, website, outlook, and result.
I’ll say this much…it’ll be interactive, community building, social, and involve prizes.
There. I’ve already said too much.
Regardless, I hope you’ll continue to watch here for updates and launch information.
Oh, and if you didn’t get the chance, here are the PSA’s from last year:
