Mike Rowe My Life!

Mike is a regular at One Union Recording. I've recorded his voiceover for hundreds of episodes of Dirty Jobs, Deadliest Catch, and all kinds of commercials, mini-series and specials. Lately he's been producing a ton of content for his thousands of Facebook fans, and now he's got an idea for a new series - Mike Rowe My Life. Inviting his fans to submit their own banal life videos, the theory is that solid VO (and sound design!) can spice up anything. He's already got 10,000 views on this baby in less than a week, and I can be seen in the "making of" video. Definitely had a lot of fun with the sound and music, all original - to essentially mock the over-dramatic Deadliest Catch style. Lots of commenters are giving props to the Wilhelm Scream at the very end! It's nice to be noticed.
