Beacon Radio Advert
Categories: Press Releases Archive
Media, Music Production and Performing Arts rose to the challenge of producing their own radio advert for Beacon Radio to advertise the upcoming Open Evening on 24th June 2009.
Dan Hill, current first year, Music Technology and Media student, took the lead as producer. Dan was nominated for this role by Dave Longdon, Music Technology teacher, who helped inspire and organise the recording sessions. Dan created the sound track, developed the script, auditioned the Performing Arts students to find the perfect voices, recorded voice over takes and brought the advert together.
Jack King, Bright Ogude, Jordan East, Jess Morris and Marilyn Cruise (Receptionist) are the stars that made it through to the final take.
Mixing was completed with the help of Matt Bellingham, HND Music Production Tutor and the finished piece was produced.
Dan looks forward to going down to Beacon Radio to see how the final copy is brought to air.
“This has been a great opportunity for me. To see how my idea has made an impact! It will be great for my portfolio and will be a real talking point at interviews.
My ambition is to become a full-time Producer and continue to establish myself as a DJ in my spare time. This experience has been great fun and rewarding. I am now, more determined, that this is the career path for me. I would like to thank the Beacon team for sparking my creativity and the opportunity to be involved. ”
The advert will be aired over the two week run-up to the Open Evening on June 24th but you can hear it first here, Dan’s debut Radio Ad.
