Hey everybody! Porchlight Family Media approached me to do the voice over for their production of “The Village Blacksmith” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. I was thrilled because this is one of my father’s favorite poems in all the world. He was thrilled I was asked to do this. After I did the voice work, original artwork and music was created, and the production was fast tracked since my father’s cancer was progressing.
Unfortunately, the production wasn’t available when my father took a sudden downturn and passed away last week, but to honor him, please listen to this short audio file. I can feel my father’s character in the man being described in the poem. Floyde Holbrook was just such a man.
