Finland, the land of polar bears, wodka, ice and snow :)…and excellent radio imaging.

This year’s 24th “Radio and Production Awards” were announced at the end of march and as always a lot of talented people took the challenge and participated. I am very happy to share an interview with one of the contestants and 2nd Runner Up for Large Market Promo : Heikki Wichman from Finland. Heikki is a great guy who has been doing radio imaging for commercial radio in Finland since 1997. He has been working for many stations like U103, Sävelradio, Radio Nova, Nostalgia and NRJ. For the work below on the “Energy Extravadance Show” in 2013, he earned the 2nd runner-up in the category  “Large Market Promo” on this year’s “Radio and Production Awards” and I am thrilled he took some time to answer my questions.

bradygoodman_disney_boobs2

After about 20 years in radio full-time, I’ve been working as a director of video productions for a manufacturing company in Kansas City for the last few years. I have clients I do imaging for as a freelancer on a consistent basis as well as working with my “home station,” KZPT-FM 997 the Point in Kansas City, where I’m also on-air as a weekend/fill-in jock.
I’d also like to mention how much I love this “Iron Imager” contest. I’d like to thank Benztown for making it happen. I’d like to thank Dan Kelly and the other champs for being involved and bringing a large amount of credibility to this event. The trip to LA and the chance to share the stage with Dan, catch some hang time with the Benztown Team is a prize in itself! If this brings me new opportunities, that’s just icing on the cake. This experience has easily been one of the most exciting things that has happened to me in my radio career.
I love you, radio.
Love, Brady

PS: I’m on twitter, @bradygoodman, and I’m always open to new opportunities

Tom Ferguson

Today I am really thrilled to do an Interview with Tom Ferguson. He is a Brit, but works in the UAE and images Channel 4 as well as he is the PD for that station. Tom was a great talent a few years ago and developed to one of the best Imaging Guys out there. He sent me his soundlcoud and I was blown away and needed to reach out to him to get to know more of how he does it, what is his favorite PlugIns, what techniques does he use etc.. Learn more about Tom, check his audio and screen caps….ENTER IMAGING UAE. (more…)

Ashley Bard Capital Xtra

Lately I discovered Ashley’s work on Daryl’s blog and I knew right away this guys needs to be interviewed. Especially his work for Capital Xtra  blew me away – I love how he uses Filters, Stutters and rhythmic in general to create a new world of sound attached to the regular Capital brand, but far away enough to keep an own character. Check Ashley’s audio, hsi screen caps, read about his tips and tricks and enjoy one of the UK’s rising Imaging stars.

You all know Sidey. One of the most talented guys in the business and creative genius. But how can every one of us be creative, write great scripts and do remarkable work and do we need an R8 for it? Well, the last question is personal – I would go for a Porsche, but..does great Imaging has the need to be creative or is this non sense and it is all about turn around time, quick in and out and delivery of facts….What THE hell is CREATIVITY in radio imaging? Check my interview with Sidey! (more…)

A few weeks ago the benztown studios Stuttgart have been visited by a good friend and great production guy, Sergey Zelentsov from Moscow.

David Tyler Facebook

Nothings better then getting connected and David Tyler made it happen for all of us: nearly 1.300 imaging directors, producers and VO talents joined the “radio imaging and production” facebook group since he started it a few months ago. He created an additional place where we all can learn from each other, share tips and give and get feedback.  We can’t thank him enough for that and it’s time to take a look at the man behind this group.

David calls himself “Canada’s hardest working voice actor” and no one can deny it. Starting from radio (FM96, MIX 96, Q92) and TV (The Weather Network) he went on and on. For  20 years he is doing radio imaging and TV promos, commercials, corporate teaching, e-learning, content marketing and even video games. He lives with his wife and two sons in Montreal, the city he really fell in love to and work’s out of his home studio.

So let’s check out David’s work, tips, ideas and inspiration…

This post about Leandro Adrogue got so much love, so I decided to interview the second spanish speaking Imaging guy this month – Luciano Voglino. Raul was so kind to introduce me. Luciano is a great talent, working for a nationwide argentinian network called Vorterix Rock. I am happy to showcase screen caps, some audio examples of his work. Most important : He is born in the country of my all time hero : DIEGO ARMANDO MARADONA. Please note this is a bilingual interview in english and spanish!

Enter Luciano: (more…)

This interview is a special one, which I was really looking forward to, because I know less about the spanish speaking imaging community, it’s stars and I also never worked  in a spanish speaking market myself. So a brand new experience for me and the blog team.

Thanks to Raul Segura for making it happen and connecting us with one of the leading spanish speaking imaging talents: Leandro Adrogué. (This interview will also be available in spanish on Raul’s Spanish radio imaging blog.) This is the first radio imaging interview, posted on two blogs in two different languages.

Let’s dive right into it and meet Leandro, who started radio back in 1992 in Argentina and now works for Catalonian radio network Grup Flaix from his studio in Barcelona. Check out Leandro’s innovative imaging style, some pics from his studio and more. (more…)
