Client Success: Hire Dinosaurs

Updated: Dec 9, 2020

Sometimes, life really doesn't work out the way you'd expect it to.

If you told me 10 years ago that my voice and my work would feature on a dinosaur-themed stage show in the UK, well, I would have said you were crazy! But yet, here we are. And not only once, but twice! It's been great to work with Hire Dinosaurs as a repeat client, and I've got to say, the results, with the lights and the enormous dinosaur on stage, are pretty magical.

For our first piece we were asked to create an audio intro for their big T-Rex, whose name is Zeus. We put together a voiceover, and gave Zeus his voice with some scary roars and chomping sounds that definitely got the kids in the front row going! After a great response to the first job, we were tasked with creating a second intro.

This time, we created an audio soundtrack for the show's main character. In explaining her backstory, we created another voiceover, then spliced together three different musical soundtracks to take the audience on the journey right through the character's backstory in true Jurassic Park style. Some sound effects of dinosaurs and archeological digging sealed the illusion, with the final file provided ready to go to an extremely happy client!

A bit of a departure from the usual podcasts, but if you're looking for something a bit different in the imaging for your podcast, then I reckon we've got it covered! This was definitely a great job to tick off the bucket list!
