This was a great job to do. Mark was approached to do a cover of the Mika song Love Today for a Dreamworld TV ad. After debate about melodies, tuning and lots of other things, we ended up with a great sounding ad. Daniel McGahan did the main lead singing with Darryl Murphy providing the Aussie rave at the tops and tails.
Launched yesterday was a follow up campaign to Queensland Tourism’s “Best Job In The World Campaign” This ad features some of the finalists from that competition. Borrowing the music and the “choreography” from The Monkees Hit, “Hey Hey We’re the Monkees” we recorded the music at Farmhouse. Mark McDuff produced the track, and Daniel McGahan sang with Renae Suttie.
I did some mixing and mastering for Garry Smith who produced a new promo for the Queensland Firebids Netball 2009 Launch called Fire up Firebids! featuring Renae Bedford on lead vocals. We also recorded Vocal Manouvers doing the Team song for all the victories they are going to have this year.
This was the first project I got to use my new T-Filter EQ ala Sontec/Massenburg. Sounds fantastic!
This jingle is a bit of a new direction for Queensland Cricket. It is turned out to be quite a good little track. Makes me want to go to the cricket at least…. Written by Mark McDuff and sung by Daniel McGahan.
