We run a music production studio in Melbourne, primarily focusing on jingles, sonic branding and radio ad production. Our studio, built by Harry and his team more than 6 years ago lifted our game and quality instantly. We needed something robust yet portable should we ever need to move. Harry is an artisan but also a very respected musician and producer so we knew we were in safe hands with someone who could help us create the perfect space to work and make music. We use this booth everyday and wouldn’t change a thing. All our work needs to be of the highest standard for broadcast so the booth delivers on all of these aspects. Harry also goes above and beyond to ensure the workmanship is top notch and has been known to pop in from time to time with some proactive additions to further improve or ad a new dynamic to the space. Michael Burrows
I recently did a sound effects job on 1001 Nights (the animation for CLF in Richmond) - the vocals sound great. The booth held up really well and microphone choice spot on. Really proud of the work and how everything came together from scratch.
I think of our time making "Soon" together extremely fondly. Harry is such a creative and passionate person and I feel lucky and proud to have had him work on my first album. The first is always the special one, I think, and I learned a great deal working with him; things that I've been able to carry on into the making of my next two albums. Liz Stringer
It is no understatement to say the success of the Federation Bells in recent years is thanks to Harry’s work. Harry has a rare combination of musicality, technical mastery and innovative thinking. He is able to see several step ahead and prepare for consequences that others would regard as ‘unforeseen’. He is adept at solving problems and pro-active in finding and delivering solutions in a timely and efficient manner. I recommend Harry highly for artistic, design and technical work. Ariel Valent
Throughout the two year project Harry demonstrated his abilities to carry out this work which covered a very wide range of expertise including industrial design, construction, computer hardware knowledge, software design and capabilities, as well as his musical competency, to achieve an impressive instrument. He showed unfailing thoroughness, reliability and dedication and was innovative in his approach to solving problems. He worked tirelessly to produce an excellent result for a highly involved project effectively coordinating sub-contractors and colleagues, as well as infecting them along the way with his enthusiasm. He delivered under budget and within the discussed time frame and he provided detailed weekly reports keeping the city well informed of progress. Harry is highly commendable for his focus and ability to realise a detailed and complicated brief with such outstanding results. Jane Hart - Project Manager

Its usual to have an onsite visit before the filming day to help the crew get familiar with access, parking, lighting, mic placement, acoustics, and liaison with key staff. Think about clothing – avoid stripes!
If you are supplying background music, then have a list of tracks by title and source, and bring the original CD’s. We prefer not to use mp3’s ripped via iTunes etc, as the quality suffers. If the project is for public sale, you will need to get written permission from the publishers of works you wish to include.
You should provide a plain text (.txt) file of all the credits, with the names double checked. It take time to render the final video output so please proof read the titles with care. Better to be safe than sorry as redoing work takes time and money.
For a 3 camera shoot with multitrack audio, about 2 hours once the gear is unpacked. For a simple band stereo shoot , about 45 minutes.

Authoring is a process whereby the menus, navigation buttons and other features are linked to the video at the right location so the finished DVD functions correctly.
It can include creating Subtitles and alternate audio tracks
Subtitles are made using a very specific text format which is added to the project during the authoring. They are linked to specified frames in the video and use standard fonts. They maybe switched on and off using custom buttons. They can be time consuming!
