A year (and a bit) down the road…

Well now, that was a bit of a hiatus wasn’t it? Much has changed, moved town, moved house (rather obviously) and got three distinct business entities on the boil. All under the umbrella of RedLED ProductionsRedLED Productions Logo Square [425x 425].
RedLED Productions undertakes digital media projects such as video filming and editing. The attention to detail and quality is also applied to the creation of bespoke DVD and BluRay discs, fully packaged and presented. Promotional, training and educational productions have been commissioned and delivered. We also undertake VHS to DVD transfers, retrieiving old memories and presenting them in a new medium that is far less susceptible to degradation. A full menu system, with chapters, modern graphics and broadcast quality transitions means that your old video footage has never looked better. If it’s your typical long, boring, uncut home video we can (if you wish) edit it down to a more engaging viewing experience.

Often promotional and training work requires a voiceover to instruct, clarify or extol – which is where the next department comes into play, Mark Tilyard – Voice Actor.Mark Tilyard - Voice Actor (bigger)
Capable of many voice styles and accents, Mark Tilyard – Voice Actor produces audio for audiobooks (for example on Amazon and iTunes), animation, commercials, infomercials, auto attendant (phone systems), and “voice of God”-type speech for live events. Pretty much any requirement for a male voice can be undertaken (my “female voice” is fine for comedy, pantomime and cartoons – but not particularly convincing for serious work 🙂 ).

You’ll notice that sound is a common thread running through these various services which brings us to the final provision available from RedLED Productions. Groovemachine featuring MrGroove is a fairly long-winded way of saying “mobile disco” but it is certainly a lot more fun!
GroovemachineWith music from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond (00s and 10s don’t quite have the same ring to it – roll on the 20s!) Groovemachine has something for everyone. Having been a radio DJ since the late 80s and running discos since 1990 I have a lot of experience of how to ensure an event runs smoothly and is enjoyed by all. Weddings, birthday parties, children’s parties, promo events have all been undertaken. Fancy a groovy 70s night, a vibrant 80s night or a retro 90s night? Themed birthday parties can be great for recapturing those memories of your “clubbing days” – your playlist suggestions / wishes are willingly incorporated into the set so you can be assured your favourite songs will get you and your friends on the dance floor. Take a look at the dedicated website for testimonials / reviews of my work.

Technical Media Services?

Video-Audio-Production-Voice-Over-Voice-Acting-Copywriting Services?

It’s tricky to come up with an umbrella term that covers all these areas of expertise, if you have a good idea do let me know. Suffice to say that I am now transitioning my skills that were previously available only to a select number to a national (international?) market. So if you require generation of an audio or video epic, voicing for your latest production, telephone “on hold” system voicing, some engaging “target audience” text for your website or assistance on any of the above click the “Contact” option in the menu above and get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.


Addendum: Aha! Finally worked out a better umbrella term for all of this: Digital Media Services.

Gimme the Reason!

(with apologies to Luther Vandross for “borrowing” his song name for my title 🙂

OK so today is the release of Propellerhead Software’s Reason 5 and Record 1.5 updates. I use this software at church (I play keys). It’s such a versatile and well written piece of music production software. It has nifty (and totally extravagant) features. For instance you can turn the virtual rack around and move the virtual cables from socket to socket – literally unplug and plug in graphically. They didn’t NEED to write that in such a graphically rich way but the fact they did makes it appear so much more like an “audio device” than a software application. I guess that’s the key – engage the imagination of the user and you’ll gain their love.

Anyway it’s released to today – I bet their servers are getting pretty hot with all the download attention. Can’t wait to have a play!
