I'd be tempted to start off with one or two of the more "realistic" cuts from the second half and then blend in the louder and character stuff. But that's boring and I tend to roll that way some days.

All cuts are good to go though.

Thanks Bruce! We tried to go that route. I think we tried five different orders before getting to this one. But I know what you mean. If they're all good to go, that's good to hear. Smile

Bruce - after some consideration, I've gone with your recommendations and remixed/remastered it as you said.

Also added a recent Tonka piece in the 2nd spot and got rid of one of the later spots I didn't care for. Smile

Thanks! I remastered again and brought up the #2 clip to match the right volumes and gave it a slight mojo tweak. That's now up on the player on my landing page at lanceblairvo.com Smile

That's a terrific commercial demo Lance ! Went to your website to have a listen.

Seems like one doesn't always need to go to the Demo Guys to put out a great demo, if you have such a body of solid work from which to choose. Smile

Ah - but I did go to a demo guy for this. But we worked hard to make them sound different, and he collaborated with me on the order, music, and script. Very cool. But the second spot, the Tonka one, is a new real spot, which gives more of an illusion that they're not from a canned demo.

It's been frustrating that I've worked on some cool stuff this year. But the scripts have a few words...


...and then a huge pause...

...and an other huge pause...

...making them useless...

...for...

...demo clips!

I stand corrected! The Demo guy is still "the man".

I...

get...

your...

point.

But, sometimes you can work around those pauses.

Here is a link to 2 real jobs, that have been edited. that are now in my demo. First comes the pre sample, then the post sample.

Nice editing there.

I tried to do that with some spots, but the music was too rhythmically complex. In one case, it was a beautiful string quartet accompaniment that I simply couldn't cut.
