project // Dubai International Airport
It was just a normal day when the phone rang.
- We have Mr. Morgan Freeman with us here in town and we need an urgent recording"
- Okay, let me see when the studio is available.
- No, you don't understand. Mr. Freeman cannot come to your studio. Your studio has to come to Mr. Freeman.
- What do you mean?
- He is staying at a hotel and you need to come down, do your thing and record his voice. Today.
We spent the next 5 hours building a studio in Morgan Freeman's hotel apartment and recording his voice for Dubai International Airport. He was a very down-to-earth person and told us the emir of Dubai personally asked him for his voice for the largest airport construction project at the time. While voicing, Mr. Freeman keeped a close eye on how the baseball game was going on his big, muted TV screen and expressed delicate emotions which didn't interfere with his reading at all. At the end, he signed a picture for us.
What a day to remember!
