Chelsea FC Museum

 

Working with Acoustiguide, I directed and produced a multi-lingual tour for 'The Blues' new museum, which opened in summer 2011 and was updated for the 2012 season!

 

Tour is available in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian, and is a must for football fans - featuring archive and interviews with Chelsea greats past and present.

Liverpool FC Museum

 

Narrated by Liverpool legend Phil Thompson, this new tour takes you through the rich history of Liverpool FC.  Featuring interviews, archive audio and video, the Liverpool FC Museum is a must-visit for any fan of the Reds.  Produced in conjunction with Imagineear in English, French and Spanish.

Arsenal Emirates Stadium Tour

 

Narrated by Gunners legend Bob Wilson, this brand new multimedia tour produced for Imagineear takes you around the Emirates Stadium.  The tour features video and audio interviews with the current Arsenal squad, the behind the scenes team, and the gaffer himself - Arsene Wenger.  Find out just what the team goes through when preparing for the big matches, and experience the feeling of walking down the tunnel to the roar of the crowd!  Now available in Brazilian Portugese.

Here's just a selection of the projects I'm involved in; if you'd like to hear any samples, please get in touch

Titanic Belfast

 

This iconic visitor experience tells the tragic story of the famous ocean liner, and its construction in the Belfast shipyards.  Set in the buzzing 'Titanic Quarter' of the city, the tour takes visitors back to turn of the century Belfast, and on that fateful journey with the passengers and crew of the ill-fated ship.  Produced for Acoustiguide, and includes an extensive tour for visually impaired visitors.

Osborne Beach

 

Now opened to the public (since August 2012) is the Royal Family's private beach at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight.  For English Heritage, I wrote and produced content for the Mini Bus ride which takes visitors to and from the beach, mixing informative interviews with curators and staff with the words of Queen Victoria herself.  Bring your bathing costume!

LACMA - Stanley Kubrick

 

A very, very exciting new app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch! "LACMA: Stanley Kubrick accompaines the major exhibition in LA showcasing the visionary director's life and work.  Containing archive production images and documents, video interviews with current directors such as Chris Nolan and David Slade, it's packed with information and is a must for any cinephile.   Download it here!

HMS Alliance

 

Having completed a major lottery-funded refurbishment, HMS Alliance at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport is the only WWII-era submarine open to the public in the UK.  I wrote and produced the immersive audio tour for this fantastic piece of naval history, featuring a wealth of interviews with the men who served on board.

HMS Belfast

 

I worked with Acoustiguide to write and produce an exciting new audio tour for this iconic London landmark.  Featuring new interviews with Belfast veterans and new discoveries from the Imperial War Museum Sound Archive, the tour aims to bring the story of one of Britain's best-loved ships to life.  Just launched, with 10 languages and Family tour!

The Churchill War Rooms

 

Produced for Acoustiguide, this new tour of - in my opinion - one of the "must see" attractions in London, explores the hidden world behind the closed doors of a government and a country at war.  It also tells the story of one of Britain's greatest Prime Ministers at a time of great peril, and is a fascinating insight into the man himself.  Opens May 2014 in 10 languages, with Family tour and tour for Visually Impaired visitors.

National Memorial Arboretum

 

In the heart of Staffordshire lies this beautiful visitor attraction, designed to be a national focus of remembrance for dozens of military and civlian groups.  I am writing and producing a two hour multimedia tour for the NMA, in conjunction with Acoustiguide, which covers over 90 of the more than 300 memorials on site.  This beautiful - and free - Arboretum is simply a must-see!

Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam

 

I've been involved in projects with the Van Gogh Museum since 2014, beginning with the permanent multimedia tour, for which I provided interface sound design and audio production services for all 11 languages and tours.  This year I worked with the museum to provide production for the temporary exhibition "In The Forest: Van Gogh, Rousseau, Corot", and am also extending the permanent tour to include a Korean language version.

Cromford Mills

 

Richard Arkwright's spectacluar mill complex in the Peak District now features a walking tour which I wrote and produced for Acoustiguide.  Beginning in the mill yard, take the tour and discover Arkwright's story, and what life was like for mill workers in the 18th century as you explore the village in which they lived.  Opened in June 2016.
