is a versatile platform for developing story ideas, leaving plenty of room for the listeners imagination.
Below are some examples of content I wrote and produced from several projects whilst in Australia, some commissioned some self -motivated.
Knoxbridge Park is an interactive simulation commissioned for KIOSC at SWINBURNE UNIVERSITY that challenges visitors to make sustainable urban planning decisions for their city, as they balance the economic, environmental and socio-cultural well being of their community.
Understanding the cognition in this learning process creates a better experience .Priming students for learning can be done through creative content- in this case a song/rap that uses the core values of the school as lyrical ingredients.
"KNOCKING DOWN WALLS" is the theme music from the orientation program made with KIOSC students and local musicians.
An imaginary radio show excerpt in which inhabitants of "Knoxbridge Park " discuss key issues for creating a sustainable urban development.
The audio was created by playing a series of themed drama games with students around key themes of sustianable devlopement and recording and then editing the dialogue that ensued.
I often use an audio soundtrack as the first point of development for a concept. Its more vivd than a script whislt leaving room for the listeners imagination. It's idea; as a soundtrack to devloping an animatic, a storyboard or as standalone audio.
Brushtail Bobs' Renegade Road Show..
A fun radio show concept and a platform for the animals of Australia's old growth Forest to let them have their own say on extinction.
A trio of endangered possums escape from the Zoo and take over the radio station to bring the plight of de-forestation to the attention of the public. They then go on the road in a converted ice cream van to continue campaigning on conservation issues.
The idea evolved from content for Healesville Sanctuary, part of Melbourne Zoo ( Banjo's Magical Adventure ) focussing on raising awareness about the Ledbeaters Possum , I broadened the scope to include other animals.
Dabs goes to the Moon
When I lived in Melbourne I wrote this story about the quirky cat who came with the house I shared.It's a metaphor for the idea of an animal Heaven but like "The Lion,the witch and the wardrobe" can be received on a simpler, lighter level .
It was written in rhyme over a rhythm track so it's a kind of suburban rap.I wrote and recorded the verses to a drum loop and then added musical detail until I had a complete soundtrack and story. This is all about fun and exercising the imagination freely.
And the story ? …its about a cat who goest to the moon in a laundry basket with some mice of course .
