35 years in the media business sounds like a lifetime, and believe me it is. But it has been a fantastic, fun ride all the way.
I specialise in solving problems. Whether it’s breathing new life into your brand or turning around a radio campaign in a matter of hours.
My journey started at the SABC as a production assistant and part-time sports announcer:
Moving to a commercials production company Audio Arts where I refined my skills as an audio engineer, producer and musician:
On to Radio 702 where I took on copywriting & voice overs, managing the creative department plus presenting live on-air shows:
To Highveld Stereo as creative manager responsible for the new station sound:
And then, into my own business Comedia as a freelance writer for Top Billing, radio and television producer, airtime planner & buyer and all client services.
As a result I can now offer you a whole range of disciplines that are relevant to the making and placing of successful, effective advertising messages.
So, whether you require a simple radio ad, a voice over for your commercial, an effective staff motivational video presentation, a corporate DVD or big production television commercial – I deliver!
Looking forward to solving your problems.
My journey began in London in 1992, as a VT Operator at a Soho post-production company. While I was there I received a firm grounding in video technology from some of the best engineers in the world.
In 1994 I returned to South Africa, and joined The Video Lab in Johannesburg. I was trained on various linear and non-linear edit suites. Working on local tv inserts and big international productions.
While all this was going on, I was also developing my other passion - writing music...
And in 1998, Gordon and I decided to combine forces. We built our own audio studio and began producing radio ads and music for television. By 2002, we were able to build our first video suite, and since then we have not looked back. We now specialise in effective animation, motion graphics and design, edit and post-production. And we also have a 3d graphic department!
The ability to handle all aspects of a production is our greatest strength. We draw from our combined experience in all fields. Script writing, music selection and creation, graphics and design, voice recording and final mix. And we really love what we do...
