    Beer commercial with local band. Mix comments wanted

    Sign in to disable this ad
    This is my first paying customer and I hope I don't blow it. A local band won a battle-of-the-bands and as a "PRIZE", Miller is letting them do a 60 sec commercial to promote their band (44 Mag.) and miller lite.
    This is a rough mix I did last night aboot midnight. Could you guys give it a quick listen and see if I have any horrible mistakes, give general mix comments.
    (Other than the voice-over needing to come up). Thanks alot.

    a one minute spot? you better do a :30 and a :45 just in case.

    The music totally overpowered the ad.... get the tag up front and up the middle and drop the music back a bit. You had a section in the middle where there wasn't a tag that was too long for an ad. Also, make the thing as mono compatible as possible. Other than that, it sounded great. Nice job.

    Ok, I re-read your post and you asked not to comment on the voice being up front... so I guess ignore my post...

    Seriously, though... it sounded great. I'm suprised they asked for :60. Is this your first commercial spot?

    Yep, sure is. I hope it's good enough. I'm pretty new at this recording stuff ya know. I thought 60 was long too, but that was what the band was told to do. I think I'll take your advice though and do the 30 and 45 sec ones also. Can't hurt.

    Thanks

    You already know to bring the sales pitch up, so I'm not sure what else there is to say. Who did the voice spots? Was it scripted, or did you get the voice-over as a dub? Can I be any less clear in my questioning?

    sounds great to me, man.

    so it's the band asking you to do it and not Miller? that's kinda quarky... who gave you voice tracks to use or did you record those? I worked for the recording studio of an ad agency for 5 years and that doesn't make sense...

    I did the voice over. It was given to me by the guitar player. Where he got it is beyond me. I'm a little confused about the whole thing too. I guess I don't care really, as long as it gets played on the air.

    Thanks Chris, JR

    hmm... i'd be more worried about getting paid vs. air play.

    anywho, nice job with the voice over. Is that your voice? If so, you need to shop it. Get an agent. Seriously.

    Yep that's me, last night about 11:30 pm, 6 to 8 beers and LMAO. It's the coolest thing I think I've ever done. That's why I'm diggin the idea of air play.
