Anyone who follows our work knows that we love working together as a family. They also know we love working for clients who try to make the world a better place. Particularly in today’s climate, we believe it’s more important than ever to use our voices for causes that make a positive impact in the world. Some of our most meaningful work has been for non-profit organizations. We already enjoy the perk of getting paid to do something we love. Doing social cause voice overs brings still more benefits.
The satisfaction of using our talents to help people
A recent project we were excited to work on was for the ACLU of Northern California. It’s an animated video in English and Spanish that is shown in immigration detention centers. The video explains to detainees their rights to communicate with their lawyers and others who can help with their immigration cases. Whatever one’s position on the complicated question of immigration, people can only exercise their rights when they know what they are.
Being a part of something bigger
Rosi did this uplifting voiceover in English and Spanish for the American Cancer Society. The spot highlights the organization’s work to help cancer patients and connect them to a large support network. It also connects the general public to the struggles of those with cancer.
Sharing information/raising consciousness
Alisa voiced these spots in English and Spanish. They highlight health discrepancies between poorer and wealthier ZIP codes in California. Life expectancy there can vary by more than 10 years on average between people born just a few miles from each other. Alisa loved being the voice that shared this important message.
Our country, and our world, are more complicated and conflicted than they have been in a long time. It would be easy to just throw up our hands, not pay attention, and try to make money. But we’re a part of the world, and the world is a part of us. By engaging with it through cause voice overs, we feel empowered. Our work and our lives take on more meaning.
