The decision seemed like a weird one.

tQuit one of the best jobs in radio and start writing down the voices I was hearing in my head.

Six months later and I had:

  • two television scripts
  • two short film scripts
  • two stage scripts
  • one radio comedy script
  • a mini bible for a children’s television show
  • and a QR code marketing idea.

Which I made into an ebook that can be downloaded below. Enjoy!

So we had another idea (there’s a theme developing here).

What if you put a GoPro (camera) on a GT Aggressor (mountain bike) and bomb it down the biggest hill on Cumbrae and THEN edit in some facts about the island?

You’d have a wee advert for the island wouldn’t you?

So that’s what we did. Have a swatch:

BBC Radio Scotland

Back in 2013, I was lucky enough to write and coproduce with The Comedy Unit on four comedy monologues for BBC Radio Scotland’s, The Culture Studio.

You can listen to them here:

‘Number 29 to Stockbridge’

‘Second Post’

‘School Run’

‘A Walk To The Shops’

 

Traveling Voices

 

The first production of its kind in the UK, Traveling Voices, based within Glasgow Central Station allows commuters to hear historical information about the interesting life of the Station.

I designed this production as part of my final submission for my honours degree at UWS to help answer the questions of:

Who built the station?

Who has passed through the station?

And what’s the relationship of the station with the city?

All these questions are answered through this innovative delivery of historical information via a QR Code.

 

UWS MAT: Multilingual Audio Tour

The new Ayr campus of the University of the West of Scotland is modern, fresh and has four levels of twisting and connecting corridors.

With this in mind they asked me to create an audio map of the campus.

Supported by the campus WiFi system I created a multilingual audio guide that students and visitors can access, via their mobile internet devices, to find their way around the campus in their respective language.

The services offers three languages: English, German and Spanish (reflecting the demographic of the student body).

It also gives the user the option of ‘Audio Only’ (data light) or ‘Audio With Pictures’ (data heavy) to better aid their navigation and bandwidth requirements.

 

Philiphaugh Audio Guide

The Philiphaugh Salmon Centre asked me to create for them an infrastructure to support their preexisting audio tour.
