It's Christmas!

John Lennon sang...
“So this is Christmas, and what have you done?”
Well, John. Bugger all this year actually.

Band Aid told us...
“There’s a world outside your window, and it’s a world of dread and fear.”
Too right it is at the moment. That’s why we’ve done bugger all this year.

And as Wham! sang...
“Once bitten twice shy. I keep my distance but you still catch my eye.”
Good advice George. Thank you.

Slade sang...
 ”Do the fairies keep him sober for a day.”
Good bloody luck with that one, fairies.

The Pogues sang…
No, we won’t go there. We like you all.

Office Hours

We're having a little break over Christmas and New Year. From 23 Dec to 3 Jan we'll be working reduced hours, BUT Rob can still help if you have a studio emergency. We'll be back to normal (whatever normal is!) from 4 Jan.


Effects stacks – the pros and cons for voiceovers

One thing Rob gets asked to do from time to time is to create effects stacks for voiceovers. In this blog he looks at the pros and cons (mostly cons) of using stacks.

Doing things differently - an ethical approach to marketing

A few months ago Helen was interviewed by Karen from Goodness Marketing. We've always felt uncomfortable with pushy traditional marketing. It has never been something we wanted to associate with B Double E and Karen’s approach has been enlightening and confidence-boosting.
Why doing things differently is a good thing >>>
