Services needed for local TVCs in China
Posted 21-11-2013, wanted
We are already working on the translated storyboards which I can send to you shortly as reference. What we need from your end would be recording a local VO artist, talent fees for that artist, updating the current edits (we would send you the master files and music stems), mastering and delivery to the TV stations. We are currently working with a media company called Initiative on the compliance process. I don't know if this is something you could also handle for us but we would love to be able to hand the entire process over to you and just manage the client from this end.
The TVCs that we need to adapt are:
1x60 Brand TVC
1x30 Brand TVC
1x30 Brand (Alternate) TVC
1x30 Acquisition TVC
1x15 Cutdown TVC
