Our Interstitials for this years show

This year, I asked my friend Craig, a professional voice over guy (and is actually this guy http://www.asfailedontv.com/lists/480/15-Epic-Commercial-Fails/1?listfrom=post9680) to cut some interstitials for our show this year.  I really loved his voice, and adding the sound effects and movie clips make it even more fun.

 

FYI, if anyone is interested, he is available to voice your display.

"Interstitial", loosely defined, means the space in-between. It's use is medical in nature, although I suppose it could be remotely argued that it applies to the space between sequences. Were it not for encountering an insufferably arrogant podiatrist, (who seemed to forget the fact that he smells stinky feet all day for a living) I'd say I've never heard it before either.

I've never heard it used by any radio station personnel to refer to bumpers, liners, announcements, and such. But then, most radio personalities (with the exception of engineers and possibly Rush Limbaugh) aren't intelligent enough to correctly use long words, so they thankfully stay away from such.

I must admit, I viewed this thread only to find out what in the heck an "interstitial" is for myself.  I feel at little smarter now that I know, but I don't seeing it ever cracking through my usual redneck rhetoric for future use.

Wow, interesting response.  It's a term I've used for years, but I guess I didn't realize it was so indstrusty specific.  Sorry.

 

Interstitial, as I use it, is a television term.  You see them all the time.  Little bits of message between the main content.  "You're watching CBS!"  "The Big Bang Theory, tonight after the game".    

 

Anyway, hope you guys enjoyed them.

Interesting... :unsure:

 

Do you seriously play this one during your show???   I guess nothing says "Merry Christmas!" to visitors quite like the sound of a guy shooting himself after "worrying about the power bill later." :o 

 

I wonder how many mommies had to explain that one to their little ones?!?  To each their own... I guess.  :(

Is this a word? I learn something new every day. Two new words in one thread.

 

And the power bill voice over isn't much cheerful taste for the holidays but like mentioned, to each their own.

Wow!!  I missed that one SFD. Like you said, to each his own.   Nothing like the sound of someone getting shot to make the viewers stay and watch and listen for more.    Not in my display, thank you very much.

In thinking about this more, I just know that I couldn't use a voice-over (or whatever you want to call it) like this since I wouldn't want to be insensitive to those that have lost loved ones to suicide...especially around the holidays.  Definitely not the type of emotions that I would want my display to stir up.

It's not a gunshot. It's a sweeper sound effect. It's just supposed to be a guy seeing his power bill and screaming. We used the sound effect on each interstitial. But, listening to it, I can see how you might think that. I will make sure and change it for next year.

A sweeper is a short pre-recorded announcement (usually 20 seconds or less) used by radio stations as segues between songs that give listeners a brief station identifier or promo.

Dry sweepers are voice only. Wet sweepers contain SFX and/or music.

Sweepers are also known as liners, bumpers, stingers, station IDs, etc. All sweepers have a voice over included on the audio.

The example above is one of the wet ones - just like what happens when the bullet strikes flesh.
