The Deyan Audio family would like to extend a huge thank you to all the wonderful narrators, producers, engineers, directors and authors we had the pleasure of meeting and working with this year! As we bring another year to a close, we couldn’t be more grateful for all the wonderful people in our lives and the amazing stories we get to help bring to life every day.
If you’ve been following along on Facebook, we’ve been counting down our Top 5 Moments of 2018:
#5 - Participating in the annual ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, in honor of Bob Deyan and all the brave men and women working to find a cure for this terrible disease. We know Bob was someone who always looked for the positive and he’d be overjoyed to see so many people come together every year in support of a common goal.
#4 - Another year of incredible classes at the Deyan Institute! We were honored to host master classes with the likes of Ray Porter, Sean Pratt, Andi Ardnt, Jeffrey Kafer, Grover Gardner, and Julie Wilson, and of course our inimitable host, PJ Ochlan. The feedback from everyone who attended was really amazing and we look forward to more growth and great classes in 2019. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to be the first to hear about when new classes are announced.
#3 - Finding out titles we worked on made it onto a number of year-end “Best of” lists! The greatest honor is getting to work on projects that make a difference in people’s lives, or even better, projects that make the world a brighter place. Thank you to AudioFile Magazine, Audible, and Slate.com for the recognition!
#2 - Along the same lines, seeing everyone’s hard work pay off with a number of big wins keeps us motivated and hungry for more in 2019! Hours and hours of tedious work are painstakingly put into each and every production and it is incredibly satisfying when all that hard work gets the recognition it deserves. For those keeping score, titles we worked on in 2018 won:
17 Audie nominations, and 4 Audie wins
12 SOVAS nominations, and 2 SOVAS wins
28 Earphones Awards
the prestigious Odyssey Award AND 2 Odyssey Honors
#1 - Even better than the award wins, though, was getting to work with all of YOU this year! Wonderful voices and magic filled our studios all year long and we are so grateful to call you our community and family. Here’s to continued growth to all in 2019, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
