Dear JIm,

everything sounds great! We got everything! Brian, Dec and I are really happy (I should say from Brian, sorry he couldnt answer your message, because he is just dealing with so many things at the moment). Your Idea to change the script really helped. Thank you sooo much for helping us out and taking your time and effort. Sorry again for all that rushing on sunday and monday. I dropboxed you a roughcut of the file in your dropbox and I will send you a link as soon as we got the trailer ready.

If you don't mind i would like to keep in contact as we might got some work in the future (i already sent you a request on linkedin).

Many thanks again for the good work,

Good voice talent. But long silences at the end of each file. Some sentences were not read to the end. Some words of the given sentences are skipped or words are added. Good job.
