Voice Over for Book Trailer
Soft Cloud Films handled casting and direction for the voice-over work on this trailer. Final editing of the voice work was handled by Sound True, the book publisher. This was recorded and pre-edited in a two hour block keeping the project on time and within budget.
The Emperor's Ostrich
Animated Book Trailer
Soft Cloud Film owner Phil Berry directed the music and animation for this colorful piece. Original music was commissioned by Phil. He then worked with a voice-over artist simultaneously with the composer to create a cohesive music and voice track. Art direction and assets were delivered by another company. Upon receipt Phil worked with the animators directing the storytelling using the art assets provided. In order to bring out the humor and fun feel of this piece, exact timing and well choreographed movements were critical. The animator was remote so we worked through our editing sessions over video conference to speed up the delivery.
The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place
Animated Book Trailer
Soft Cloud Film owner Phil Berry provided casting and direction for the music and animation on this book trailer with a vintage feel. Phil worked directly with the voice-over talent and composer in the same space so that natural interactions and spontaneous improvisation were possible. The vocal track was that combined with animation using art assets commissioned by the author of the book. Phil worked with the animators directing the storytelling by starting with a framework of story followed by montage. He then worked side by side with the animator to enhance the humor of the piece using precise timing and well choreographed movements. You can see some of the process for laying the audio track in the video below.
