Archer? I hardly know ‘er!

I have to admit, I’ve just recently started getting into FX since they debuted Justified back in March. That’s probably why I’d never heard of Archer (that’s when its first season wrapped) until I saw this promo run during Terriers this week (which, by the way, is another great show on FX! Thanks, Televisionary.)

The :10 on-air promo works wonders in presenting the quirkiness and obvious TV-MA rating of the animated series; along with the vulnerability, yet coolness, of the lead character. The unusual choice of voice-over adds a level of mystery to it as well.

Aside from wanting to watch the show, it makes me want to see a :30 or :20 spot. Well done.


Latino in America Redux

The purpose of this blog is to focus on on-air promos and pay tribute to an art-form that requires more creatives to bring to life than the seconds it lives for during a commercial pod. I have yet to highlight a promo with my voice on it (I have my voiceover website to do that,) but this promo was born out of a spot (Meet the Garcias) that was part of a campaign I proudly narrated last year for CNN’s Latino in America and I happen to have caught it this morning (they’re re-running the two-part special this weekend.)

The original promo won several PromaxBDA awards this year and is now nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Promotional Announcement – Episodic category. Well deserved; I’m just honored to have been a small part of it.
