Looking for Bilingual Production People in Dallas for Full Time Production Position

I'm working with a TV station who is looking to fill a production position in Dallas, Texas.

The station is in Spanish, but a majority of the business is conducted in english.
Anyone interested in the job should be fully bilingual in English and Spanish.

General duties would include local production (of commericals, promos, etc) as well as postproduction work. The station is currently using Final Cut Pro as their edit station - though I'm more concerned with finding someone with talent and experience than I am in finding someone who happens to know Final Cut.

If you're interested in learning a bit more about the job just drop me a line at:

Luis (at) pitchproductions dot com

I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have, and discuss the job in more detail. I am hoping to recommend someone in the very near future.

Hello World Communications rents the Steady Tracker.

They are close to, but NOT related to B&H Photo, even though their advertisement is hanging up in the B&H store.

Firefox Flicks call for participation

Firefox Flicks

Do you dream in scenes and setups?
Write dialogue on the subway?
See an ad on TV, and think, "It'd be so much better if they'd..."?
Here's your chance to show what you can do.
Make an ad for Firefox. Enter it in the Firefox Flicks Ad Contest. Get your work judged by a panel of accomplished film, TV, and advertising pros.
Great prizes, and the chance to be featured in the worldwide marketing campaign for Firefox, await you.
We can't wait to see how you bring Firefox to life.

We're looking for creative types who can produce a 30 second Firefox commercial and we'll be putting these commercials up in front of a panel of expert judges from advertising, Hollywood, and television (including Scott Goodson - Founder and Chief Creative Officer, StrawberryFrog advertising agency, Warren Zide - Producer of the American Pie trilogy, McG - Producer of the O.C., and Supernatural, Jim Denault, Cinematographer Maria Full of Grace, Boys Don't Cry, Carnivale, and Six Feet Under, and several other great judges, too.)

In addition to getting in front of these awesome judges, we'll be offering some great prizes too, including a $5,000 gift certificate to B&H Photo where you can purchase that next piece of hardware you've had your eye on, an awesome multi-LCD display from 9X Media that'll give you a 45 inch wide screen an awesome resolution of 3840x1024, and a slick Alienware media center PC.

Project Description

Create a 30-second ad, in any style (live action or animated,) that brings Firefox to life for the millions of Web users who have yet to discover Firefox and the better Web experience it delivers.

Project Summary

Mozilla seeks to expand awareness of Firefox among a broader audience for Web browsers: mainstream consumers who may have little knowledge of the value proposition for Firefox. To help increase awareness of Firefox among this target audience, Mozilla would like to produce a high-quality, innovative 30-second ad that introduces Firefox to mainstream Web users.

In line with its history and orientation, Mozilla is opening up the creation of its initial advertising creative to film/TV/advertising/multimedia professionals, students and aspiring pros as part of the Firefox Flicks Ad Contest.

Target Audience

The primary target audience for the Firefox advertising campaign are moderately experienced Web users, who are comfortable with using the Web but are not necessarily power users. These users understand how to download and install software, and use the Web for basic activities: reading news, web-based email, limited online shopping and banking. They may rely as much on the physical Yellow Pages as they do Yahoo! or Google. They may also have had negative experiences with the Web as a result of spyware, viruses and other Web nuisances. Yet they see the value in the Web, and so return. But they likely do not clearly understand how a Web browser can improve their Web experience.


After watching the ad, the audience should be intrigued enough by Firefox to visit to learn more.
Ad Perception/Tone/Guidelines

1. Exciting, easy, simple, fun, modern, smart, cool, adventurous, young, empowering, helpful. We're sure there are other angles you can think of.
2. Ad should function more at brand level than at product features/benefits level.
3. Ad can be in any style: live action, animated, etc.
4. Don't overhype. If you have to, err on the side of subtlety, and let the audience connect the dots to get the message.
5. Take risks. The brand is new. The product is one-year old. Be fresh.
6. Use these guidelines as very broad suggestions. We are most interested in seeing how creative you can be in expressing the core premise of Firefox: making the Web experience better for everyone, and getting that message out to mainstream Web users.
7. Entries must be submitted no later than midnight, March 31, 2006.

Key Messages

You don't have to incorporate all of these messages or ideas. These are here to show you what we're interested in getting across. Pick and choose.

1. Firefox offers a better way to experience the Web. It's secure, easy to use, and customizable.
2. Having a choice in Web browsers matters.
3. The Web is too important to too many people to let a single company decide how we all get there.
4. The Web browser has a dramatic impact on the user's experience of the web.

I need a contact or reference to someone who can provide translations for spanish and Czech.

I have an unspecified number of in-house training videos that will be produced in english, and will have to be translated into both spanish and czech for our overseas locations.

Much of this stuff will be unscripted power-point training sessions, so I would emagine that the translator(s) would be able to listen to the video while tranlating to audio on the fly.

I'm running the budget/numbers today so I need some help ASAP.

Ok, I'm learning. I need both a tranlation service for the text, and an interpreter for the voice-over portion. Sorry If I wasn't clear in my first post.

I have a great translator for your Spanish portion of the project. His name is Pat Ryan and you can reach him at 262.903.5300, or at (TLC stands for the language center by the way). If you need a female voice his wife is a Chilean native who can also speak Portuguese.

Hello Pasi,

My name is Andy Drefs, I live outside of Milwaukee, WI and have been a voice over pro for years. In addition I'm an editor and have the full Adobe suite including Audition. The only challenge you may have with me though is that I'm 40, still hip of course, just a little older than you specified is all.

If you're still looking let me know...
