HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I teamed up with the good people at Squawk Productions to create this spooktacular greeting, dedicated to all you creatives out there who feel the pressure of… The Deadline. Custom music, sound edit, mix, and even voiceover performance (as well as the voices of the laughing ghouls, and the hissing snake) by Mike Hallenbeck at Junior Birdman Audio.
“Deadline” was born when I had lunch with animator Sam Thompson (half of Squawk) who I’d recently collaborated with on a project, but never met. The conversation turned to our common love of horror movies, and we decided it’d be fun to work together on something spooky sometime. We decided to do a Halloween-themed greeting aimed at our fellow creatives. Sam thought it’d be fun to equate the pressure of work-related anxiety with the scariness of Halloween, and “Deadline” was born.
