Here at The Pixel Project, we believe in being creative with getting the message out and getting everybody on board the cause to end Violence Against Women (VAW). From world-class portrait photography to purple cupcakes, we are big on putting together positive ways for everyone to easily take action for the cause… and have fun doing it!

In addition, we are big on getting men on board the cause because we believe that VAW will never be effectively eradicated without the support of the good men and boys in communities worldwide. After all, the women in their communities are their mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, nieces, grandmothers, friends and colleagues. So they too have a stake in ending the violence.

So when Bob Wiltfong, the awesome Los Angeles-based comedian, The World’s Greatest Spokesperson for Nationwide Insurance, award-winning former TV news anchor and a former news correspondent for The Daily Show, agreed to provide the voices for one of our Global “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” Day animated public service announcements, we were absolutely thrilled and sent our video animation expert, Dave Roberts to record his voice.

To give you a taster of goes on behind the scenes when we put together our campaigns and also how fun volunteering can be, we also sent our Los Angeles-based “Portraits for Pixels” photographer, Jacqueline Truong along to capture that recording session for posterity with her trusty camera.

So without further ado, we present “Behind the Scenes at a PSA recording session with Bob Wiltfong and Dave Roberts”:

Bob practices his various accents as David cheers him on using a one of a kind David Roberts voice "muffler". And yes, that is indeed a stocking-covered hanger...

 

Bob watches the computer as he records his voiceover.

 

Practicing a Scottish accent through Dave's special voice "muffler" is somewhat challenging and intense.

 

Bob and Dave discussing some of the more deliberate parts of the skit.

 

Reviewing the overall progress of the recording session together.

 

Bob listens intensely to his recording. Yes, that is Bob's serious face!

 

And finally, Bob and Dave stand up as talented professionals and fathers to say: "It's time to stop violence against women. Together".

And here is PSA in all it’s glory:

It’s time to stop violence against women. Together.
