Commercial script

I wrote the following script for a broadcast commercial for Oregon State University. Our marketing director challenged the web/multimedia team to come up with and execute a concept based on our brand platform and OSU’s historic leadership in the area of sustainability.  And here’s the result.  A friend said of the voice: “It’s kind of like a friendly cool older brother that confidently but unpretentiously gets stuff done.” That pleases me greatly because I respect his opinion but also because it means I hit the nail on the head brand-wise, because that precisely describes the persona of our grads/students.

That’s how we do things

It’s who we are

It’s who we’ve always been
