the solution of voiceover artist
3 December 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The realism of this short film about clients and their suggestions about a commercial, the solution of Vince, the final , reminding the best option for a great impact are pieces of a nice and precise portrait of a fascinating answer to indication of the team against voiceover artist. The result is real seductive for the levels of story, for the right choice for Vince role, for the tension of last part who gives a pecial aura to a high pressure. So, a good comedy. And, sure, little more.
