The saga continues on our quest to create a flashy commercial spot for Jewelboxing. A few days back, we put up a draft with some horribly mismatched soundtracks and asked any musically-inclined readers to submit better-fitting, better-sounding music for the spot. Immediately, we got in a batch of fantastic submissions, which ran the gamut from rhythmic ambient tracks to jittery electronic to torch songs. It was amazing to see how the spot would change in tone whenever we dropped in a different style.
In the end, we chose the entry by Chaz Windus at Blazing Lazer. Not only did the track fit incredibly well, it was exactly in the direction we were looking to go in. Something fun, upbeat, approachable, and with a wide variety of sounds. So impressed were we, we went back and altered the spot around to work with the frenzied track all the more. Take a look here.
Sound design is being worked on currently, and we’re still fixing little things here and there whenever we get a free second, so everything’s pressing on. Shortly, we’ll be announcing another contest in search of a voice-over artist, so drink some tea, quit smoking, and polish up those pipes — you’ll need ’em.
We’re working on a acapella cover of “Lovin’ You” for those in Hollywood, Chicago, Tacoma, Manhattan, Silver Spring, Brookline, Encino, Hurleyville, Arcadia, Arlington, Lemoore, Albuquerque, Nederland, Eastlake, Pelham, Pasadena, Minneapolis, and Brooklyn.
Of note: The special offer we made in the CP/Jewelboxing Infrequent Mailing last week expires on Friday, so hurry it up already! If you don’t know what we’re talking about, sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of the JB Home Page.
