As one of NBCUniversal’s owned-and-operated television stations, NBC10/Telemundo62 is one of the Philadelphia region’s leading media companies. The station has been delivering local news, information and weather for more than 60 years, serving nearly six million viewers throughout Greater Philadelphia, the Lehigh Valley, South Jersey and Delaware.
Recently, NBC10 producer Brendan Conway undertook the production of a 30 second television ad for local Philadelphia news station, NBC10. The plan was for the ad to air during the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games – prime television real estate with the potential to make a powerful first impression on a vast, engaged audience. Understanding the likely impact of the project was great, Brendan and his team knew they needed to find a voice over talent with the perfect sound.
With a tight deadline for the project, Brendan quickly realized the need to secure the right voice over as soon as possible. He turned to Voices and began the search.
While the audition attracted many submissions from high quality, professional talent, Brendan remembered working with one voice over talent in particular on a project in the past – and that was Harvey Gold. Brendan knew Harvey was the perfect voice to capture the spirit of Philadelphia.
Excited by the idea of finding and casting a talent with the ideal sound, Brendan reached out to an account manager at Voices and inquired about Harvey’s availability. Within minutes, there was a response and the coordination of next steps began.
A Voices Project Administrator quickly organized a live recording session for Brendan and Harvey. The live session allowed for easy coaching in real-time, resulting in multiple successful recorded takes.
Finding and securing the perfect sound was easy with the help of Voices. The result was a quick turnaround time and a successful and impressive project. The ad was received extremely well during its initial run and continues to air today – proving the power of the perfect voice.
