Studio Hire & Production
Digital heaven - our studio is brand spanking new and is designed for one or two voices. We are running Logic, Adobe Audition and Pro Tools (M version) – all on a shiny new Mac!
We are using a Yamaha mixer with a selection of outboard if required. The mics are AT4040's and SE2000a's and we're adding more all the time. The vocal booth has full communication to the control room.
DAT, MD and CD are also available as is a lovely 'Gold Mic' Tube pre-amp if you're after a warmer analogue sound.

We have recently been exploring the education market and have produced many hours of audio for interactive whiteboard systems in schools – designed to teach children Literacy. Below are a few clips that showcase what the project was all about.
For details on the books and content visit the Hopscotch website
Brown Design came to us to cast, produce, direct and master audio for one of their major clients who are launching training modules on a regular basis. They use our voices, our studio and our creative director to ensure the content is consistent throughout the term of the project
Kinura came to us for the same reason – a one stop shop for the voiceovers required for their clients projects – due to the sensitive nature of some of the projects I can tell no more!
We have recently been taking on a wide range of consultancy work, most recently for Specific Media – the new owners of MySpace. We were brought in to consult on a wide range of ideas, bringing together the skills of Simon Cryer – Creative Director, Jennifer Granville – Our resident film expert and Sacha Harmsworth – all thing online and digital.
We've also been producing test radio commercials for a wide range of brands (for obvious reasons we can't quote these online). Some of these are not real products!
Directing actors workshops
Marina Caldarone and Simon Cryer also run bespoke workshops for creative agencies throughout the UK dispelling the myths around how to direct actors and get the best performance from them in the studio. Our largest client to date is the biggest advertiser on UK Commercial Radio – the COI.
Marina Caldarone offers Acting Coaching by the hour. She has coached actors for over 10 years, from the young student trying to get into drama school and not knowing where to start looking for speeches, let alone how to make them stand out, through to the actor with a final casting for a film part who might need some help making the screen test/reading go as well as it possibly can.
She charges £60 for the hour if the client travels to her office or £75 for the hour if she travels to you.
You can reach Marina on 07946 533108 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
