latest work

Here's a few quick promos I did for Channel 11. Twas lotsa fun.

Here's what I got up to in 2015. These promos were made for the Seven Network Australia, mostly their 7MATE & 7TWO channels. Both channels have their own unique, albeit very, very specific tone of voice, which is policed by any number of stakeholders.

These are a selection of bullseyes and boundary huggers/crossers.

First up, two "list launches"... the Mythbusters spot is a pitch that didn't get the green light because it wasn't Mate's typical style, which is fair enough; but I still like it, which is why it's here. (yes, that's me doing the VO)

Next is a selection of reality genre episodics and generics. These can be tricky because the same things happen in every episode of every show, so there is a lot of pure invention going on here.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Sometimes a show can be a victim of its own popularity. Finding new angles on shows which are over-promoted can be almost impossible. But, we try...

Outback Hunters is a show about blokes who hunt crocs.
So I made a set of promos about blokes who hunt crocs.
Go figure.

There are plenty of stocking-filler movies on Mate. Again with the invention...

I'm not into the horses, which made selling these events kinda tricky.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

7TWO is directed at the 55+ audience, and all the spots therefore are required to utilise a softer, conservative approach.

The Endeavour spot is a pitch in the movie trailer style, but was deemed to be too soft, so never made it to air.

Quick! This channel's on air next week.
We need you to launch it; and the website too; and the Spring Carnival.
The channel is named after the website, but it's on your TV.
Use our host. And that jockey guy.
It needs to look HUGE. Here's $12.50.

That was great! Now do it all in half the time...
