Here's a video of my first nationally televised commercial. As you can see, it's an ad for GameStop's "Buy 2 Pre-Owned Games, Get 1 Free" sale that aired in early April 2012. I wrote, arranged and edited the song that starts about five seconds in. (I'm not sure who wrote the song that plays for the first few moments but I'd love to know so I could give that person credit!)
A little background on the development process: GameStop and creative agency Reel FX provided a description of the concept, and I submitted a version of this dramatic spaghetti-western-style tune. They later sent me an early draft of the animation and a few notes on how they wanted the music to sync up with the scene for added effect and drama. After rearranging the song a bit and figuring out just the right timing by moving around the audio and video in Pro Tools, this is what I came up with. Enjoy!
