Hollywood Screen Legend adds Oscar-winning touch to upcoming Tattoo TV commercial
Next week the Edinburgh Tattoo is set to launch a television advertising campaign across central Scotland featuring the voice work of Hollywood super-star Sir Sean Connery.
The TV commercial, inspired to support the sale of this year’s Tattoo DVD, shows a series of fast-moving clips from this summer’s hugely popular Castle Esplanade production and the almost instantly recognisable gravel voice of the 79-year-old Scottish movie star.
Edinburgh Tattoo Chief Executive & Producer, Major General Euan Loudon CBE said:
“We are delighted that Sir Sean has generously agreed to help support our activities which we hope will in turn also further strengthen our charitable endeavours.
There is no bigger voice than Sir Sean’s for that big marketplace impact.”
The 30-second commercial, created by West Linton-based production company EPM Production, launches on November 23rd and runs into early December.
EPM Production’s Managing Director, Kenneth Andrew remarked:
“Finding Compass Point Studios, in Nassau meant that Sir Sean simply slipped down the road to record his material and we were able to download the results and edit it, all within a few hours of the recording taking place. The addition of Sir Sean’s voice over lends a friendly persuasive tone to the overall focus of the commercial.”
Meanwhile, over 1,000 performers from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the United States and the United Kingdom are set to combine with highly sophisticated 21st century production technology for next summer’s spectacular Diamond Jubilee Tattoo season at Edinburgh Castle.
Tickets for this landmark production (6-28 August, 2010), priced £16.00 to £53.00, go on sale on Tuesday 1st December, 2009 via the Internet at www.edinburgh-tattoo.co.uk/tickets.
