I haven't even had a chance to ask George if he knows he's back on top again. And after all, it was his 46th anniversary of the climb a month ago.
Plus, it's getting some sort of algorithm churning in all our behalf's.
45th Anniversary post in May of last year (on the line just below).
We featured the CNN’s Original Series “The Story of Late Night" on HBO Max after noticing they were using a clip of George on David Letterman's Morning Show more than 40 years earlier. And it was being used without his permission. For whatever it's worth, I had booked George on that show, which aired on September 19th, 1980. We wound up getting an agreeable sum for George and a copy of the actual clip being used...finally.
We're still awaiting the clients video link from their roll-out ad drive for Tinol Paints. We did a voice-over for their TV spots titled: "We put things in Place".
The campaign is a cross between mis-combobulated word signage to emphasize how the politicizing of colors can speak in a thousand ways and how it plays into their theme of where is our colorful spirit.
Here's an abbreviated version of it.
Stefan Nedelman's legacy (resume) is ever growing. From whence we worked together on the voice track of Terminal Bar to doing the animation, main title graphics or generating images using textual prompts for a number of Hollywood films, including the new Netflix documentary: WHAM!
Yeah, those guys - George Michael & Andrew Ridgeley, who in 1982, formed the band (Wham). The plot begins in 1982, the best of friends and still teenagers - George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley as WHAM set out to conquer the world. By June of 1986, they played their very last gig at Wembley Stadium having done exactly that.
And it's better than ever...Stefan has been steadily busy with a work sheet that's including - Stable Deffusion. Check out his newest releases: "Con Queen of Hollywood" and "McMahon".
Why, we almost forget to mention our newest slice of good fortune of being up-for-the-part in a "HearingLife" voice-over with William Shatner.
Got-a-call from an old contact and they want me for a national cable campaign for the guy asking Bill about the wonders of HearingLife, hearing care centers of specialists and audiologists.
Of course, this comes on the heels of a looming SAG/Aftra union strike. Like they say...you can't make this sh..stuff up!
On July 14, 2023, at 3:00 am officially, the nations actors' union, SAG-AFTRA, went on strike over an ongoing labor dispute with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. It has coincided with a Writers Guild of America strike as part of broader Hollywood labor disputes.
Fran Drescher, SAG/Aftra president, gave a rousing impassioned speech just after the decision to strike. She cited the "entire business model has been changed by streaming, digital and A.I." and it was being foisted upon the actors without equitable compensation. She mentions that "there's no way to predict" how long the strike will last.
