It was another busy week in the studio …
Dervla Kirwan returned for another helping of M&S Foods over ISDN to Grand Central in London. Dervla is famous for roles in British television shows such as Ballykissangel, Goodnight Sweetheart, and the Doctor Who Christmas special!
Then we had Jack McKenzie recording a promotion relating to next year’s 150th Open Golf Championship at St Andrews. Jack gave us his mellifluous Scots and he was directed remotely by the client in the US. Our thanks to Wessex Translations, for whom we’ve produced many similar multi-lingual projects. The transition from US English to Scots still presents a few linguistic challenges!
Jack is a Scot from Edinburgh who was Cal Alder in ‘The Empire Strikes Back‘. He’s been ‘murdurred’ three times in ‘Taggart’, and appeared in ‘Gandhi’, ‘A Bridge too Far’, ‘Secret Army’, ‘Sweeney’, ‘The Professionals’, ‘Blake’s 7’, ‘Quiller’, ‘Emmerdale’, ‘Heartbeat’, ‘Sharpe’, ‘The End of the Affair’ … whew! Oh – ask him how he helped Mickey Rooney to get to meet the Queen … !
Meanwhile in our London ISDN studio, Soundtracks, Martin Glynn Murray delivered his gentle Welsh English for a project linked to the Ryder Cup, just held at the Celtic Manor Resort. Again it was directed from the US. Tracks were finished in our sound studio and uploaded via our client area to a video suite in the US.
Martin Glyn Murray appeared in ‘A Very Social Secretary‘, ‘Heartbeat’, ‘Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life’, ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin’, and ‘Enigma’.
