Audio is at the core of everything we do, and our next generation it seems. We are so proud of our Head of Production, Sam Dillon, and his 5 year old (!!) son Patch for winning the Virgin Radio '12 Families of Christmas with Sky'- a national radio competition.
Sam and Patch wrote, produced and filmed a music video for a charity Christmas song for Make-A-Wish® UK. Their Covid Christmas anthem was played on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Virgin Radio, and has received over 28,000 views on YouTube.
‘A Normal Christmas’ tells of the woes the world is facing during these unprecedented times, whilst bringing hope and a reminder of what’s important.
Have yourself a really normal Christmas,
Even if it's sanitised this year,
We can love and share a laugh...
even if it's through a mask!
Patch is aiming to raise tons of cash for the amazing Make-A-Wish charity. Make-A-Wish UK grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. Granting their wish provides seriously ill children with hope for the future, strength to cope and resilience to fight their condition.
They’re given quality time away from the daily realities of living with their condition and given the chance to make magical memories they can treasure forever – whatever their future may hold. We want to transform the lives of 1,000 children this year by granting their One True Wish!

Dominos 'Delivering The Movies' up for 'Best TV/Cinema Advert' award
Good news! Film-themed Dominos TV ad, 'Delivering the Movies', for which SNK supplied all the original music composition, creative sound design, VO recording and dub for earlier this year is down to the final four in the 'Best TV/Cinema Ad' category at the Midlands Cream Awards! And so it should be! it's a corker of a spot from Big Communications and Director Guy Soulsby... With nods to classic film genres including Westerns, 70's cop dramas and big-budget alien invasions, it was great fun to work on - and a lovely opportunity for the SNK team to provide the complete audio treatment in-house.
Have a watch here, and keep everything crossed for the results at the ceremony in a month or so on November 6th! Watch this space...
We're happy for our lovely clients at Woods Film who won no less than three highly acclaimed IVCA Awards last week! The hat-trick of a Gold, Silver & Bronze prizes were for the 'BASICS Multivoice' film for Vocality, for which we just so happened to provide all the audio post and creative sound design!
Shot over a two-week period Rhiannon Evans joined us as animator, using sets crafted by Henry Jones. VFX and motion graphics were undertaken by Steve Turner. Voice over was the legendary Ray Brooks.
Director Jay Woods was delighted with the awards, commenting “It’s always exciting to answer a brief with creative that pushes the envelope a bit. Where some see risk, others see opportunity. Gladly for us, Julian and Vocality sit squarely in the latter camp.”
