This production allowed me to shine in so many ways: acting, dubbing and voice-overing (as of now, that’s a verb). This series of public health videos was targeted at young adults by a public health organization.
The videos were released on TikTok and other social media, to help young adults consider their sexual boundaries without forgetting that sex is also just something to enjoy. I played an overprotective dad (“Do you even realize how many STDs there are?!”) and a conservative dad (the cup-thrower..) with a gay son. The girl playing my daughter managed to keep a straight face up until the moment I shouted “Gonorrhea!!”.
Eventually we changed that word to another STD, to keep on rolling without any more laughing fits. After the shoot I received the footage with music but without the voices and dubbed the other actors in my home studio. Then I recorded the voice-overs for the pay-offs (“Sex is fun! Protect yourself and enjoy”), referring to the local public health service office for further information.
