Hi, William!Matej Jan, Dawn of Play
I would like to thank you again for doing the voice over. Remember the AppCircus part you did? The local competition was yesterday and we actually won! We're now going to present the app at the global mobile awards in Barcelona (Spain) in February. This is so exciting for me and you helped to make it happen. The video came out great and the VO is perfect.
Just wanted to thank you again.
Hi William,Matt Williams Vice President, Brand & Marketing Services
