Projects
  • Churchill war-on-climate-change speech – OVO Energy
    Churchill war-on-climate-change speech – OVO EnergyChurchill confronted leaders who failed to face up to the Nazi threat. We bring him back to confront leaders who’re failing to face up to an even bigger world threat: climate change. The authentic 1940’s broadcast/ podcast runs during the UN Convention on Climate Change. We crowd-source people to impersonate Winston’s voice. Women and children can apply: a digital voice pitch-changer is included with the e-audition. Agency: pitching to OVO. (See "One offs" in folio for speech script.)
