    Video // simpsontentwelve // Amazing Grace

    We had these guys in at work recently. A four piece family band, Mum, Dad, son and daughter. Phil Maltz on lights and cameras, myself on sound. This was recorded live, I was in the room with only my little headphones for isolation. No compressors, no effects, recorded as it happened, as live and raw as it gets. Happy with how it sounds though.

    Not For Sale  // There’s always more that needs to be done to the Modern Slavery Bill

    So the Modern Slavery Bill is currently going through Parliament, earlier in the year we made a video to highlight what issues / changes need to be made to the bill.

    Now, that the Bill is actually going through Parliament we decided we need to highlight the cause again. This video happened in the opposite way to most videos we make. Using pieces from interviews broadcast on Premier, I pieced together the clips and created a soundtrack backing. We had a vision of what we needed so Phil Maltz and Andrew Horton went to Westminster to film clips for the video. Phil then edited everything to the pace of the audio. I think it works really well!

  • ‘Reputations’ in the Press

    ‘Reputations’ in the Press

    At work in Premier, I’ve been working on a couple of radio series, the second of which is Reputations. The show, as with Holy Places, is presented by Roger Bolton and features six episodes.It was produced by Caroline Donne who is also a producer on BBC 4’s Woman’s Hour.

    Reputations looks at the lives and legacies of well known Christian figures and examines the impact they’ve had on Christianity today.

    My role in these, it started off that I was to be Production Co-ordinator on the series. Three of the programmes were recorded in external studios due to studio clash times, it turned out though that I recorded the remaining three and edited the entire series.

    To be honest, it was a lot of work, but I’m really happy with how the final programmes sound. The first show was broadcast last week and looked at the live of St Paul. You can listen here.

    The second show, looking at the life of Martin Luther, is due to be broadcast tonight at ten on Premier Christian Radio tonight at ten.

    So it was absolutely lovely to discover that Reputations has been mentioned twice over the past week in the Press. It got a lovely mention in The Sunday Times on May 25th but I was delighted to see that Reputations also featured in The Radio Times this week as ‘Monday’s Choice’ Eekk! The radio choice for today! Awesome! Well chuffed!
