Ok, I lie, Mr Boombastic had it first. But many people wonder why my friends, and even professionals in the media industry, call me Shaggy. This self-produced musical tribute, ladies and gents, explains all. Presenting…Shaggy-licious!
**Thanks to my bro Peter Marchant for lending his fine vocal chords, and to Lee-Tze as co-editor, animator and furious (and lovely) girlfriend.
I was recently hired to film and produce a short promo for Entices, a great homemade ice cream shop in Birmingham’s Paradise Forum. Its one of the very few british cafes that make their ice cream on the premises, and as you’ll see, their treats look incredible as well as tasting really flavoursome compared to supermarket ice cream.
This video’s now being shown in their shop window, so take a look if you’re in Brum sometime!
Finally! Some brand new radio adverts I’ve scripted and produced.
Many of these ads were used on local UK radio stations, with the aim of giving identity and curiosity to lesser known brands, whilst maintaining or refreshing the reputation of bigger ones. Hopefully they’re entertaining to you guys in some way too, that’s the main thing ;)
If you need ads or promos for your station, drop me a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org
For a radio assignment on my media course at Birmingham City University, we were asked to produce a short two-person report. We had a shot at a 5 Live style, where we discuss a snooker event in Edinburgh.
SHAGGY’S KILLER RIFFS - Mondays 8pm-10pm GMT
Listen to my weekly rock and metal radio show every Monday night on Scratch Radio. I pick out the finest, most innovative guitar music for the rock connoisseur.
My girlfriend Lee-Tze (www.ltz.me.uk) and I produced a video for one of my songs, a track I recorded a couple of years ago called White Sand. We spent a whole day covering my studio at my parents house in parcel paper, whilst we spent another day making props out of cardboard, like a cat, a framed picture of Morrissey, the seaside and a cup of tea.
It’s the first time either of us made a music video, and I was quite proud of it, seeing as I’m still relatively new to camerawork, lighting and Final Cut Pro.
