Project Main Details

Translation of spots for award show 
These are a translation of three Danish radio spots - these English versions are for entering the award show Cannes Lions.
They were produced for the election to the Danish Parliament in the fall of 2011.
This candidate (Thyra Frank), who is a well known author and leader of a nursing home for the elders, decided to run for parliament (and was elected).
The way they were produced were a bit special. She didn't know that she was being recorded. She was just talking to me. And that is one of the reasons why they seemed so honest and real. And why it won Best regional commercial of the year in Denmark 2011.
The way she talks is really like a real person. She has a little bit of a folksy accent - so if you feel like giving it an English dialect, please do (just don't take it over the top).

This being not for broadcast and without a client to forward the bill to, I have a limited budget for it. Hope that someone will play along with me and do me this "favor" within this budget - it will be remembered.

If anyone told me in January, that I’d be running for office, I would have said: ’You are absolutely nuts…!!!’.”
To be honest … there are very few people in this world, that I have no respect for. But politicians are some of those.
Because I think… that there are 179 people that were given that AMAZING possibility … to be able to make a difference. And all they do is to sit there and squabble… and tear each other’s ideas apart.
I think it’s so far out…!
And when they tell me: ‘they are good friends after the debate’ – I feel like throwing up.
Because … I feel, that if I want to see a play, I’ll buy a ticket to the theatre.
Then it’s not those people that are put in charge of running this country…
