A very short bio: I have been making, programming and imaging local radio since I was 12 years old (now I’m 41, go figure), now I think it’s time to move on into radio imaging full time, so I’m actually setting up an International Imaging service as we speak, called imagingdogs.com where we (my partner Lex and myself) create sweepers, promo’s, hitmixes and even sing jingles for an international customer base. We are making our dream come true : make a living by making noise !
About your entry: I took the Chase interview and cut it up in words and sentences. with these snippets I created a script that Chase VO’d himself (he never knew but I made him say things that he never did by re-organizing his words)… along with this I goofed around with 2 songs :
Face the Face by Pete Townshend http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_N2kJg29v4&feature=related
Spacer by Sheila B. Devotion http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1kgtc_sheila-b-devotion-spacer_music
… to make them more “chase”-ing
and the I also added some “studio session” atmosphere (myself voicing the part of the engineer) to top it all off …Thus creating the impression of Eric Chase doing a voice-session with me for a promo … with little success. The session may be “unsuccesfull”, the result is a quite realistic way of how ity could have gone in the studio … and that’s what I wanted 🙂

A very short bio: basically anything you want people to know you and what you do. What you like about radio, what you have done and your goals for the future. etc
I am the radio imaging producer of Monster Radio Davao. I do on-board shifts too in the morning and then do other tasks after that, phewww!! I attempted to leave radio to work for a non-radio industry in 2005 but then 4 months into the job, I resigned and came back. Been here ever since and I’ve been in radio for 8 years already. Soon, I want to retire as a radio personality and work “behind the scene” instead. I like obscurity.LOL. If time permits, I’d love to do imaging or voice for other stations not just here in the PHI but around the world.

A very short bio: I started working in radio when i was about 14 years old when i used to do shows on a charity run radio station. I also was a young drummer and percussionist and by the age of 20 had toured Europe with various bands and record labels but quickly got tired of the music industry. After this i concentrated in my job within the family business and pushed on with my club dj work and ended up playing in some of the biggest clubs and venues in the UK. In 2008 i got the chance to present and produce my own dance music radio show, this came at a good time for me as i had just started a family.
I have recently won the contract to image the 12 hours of dance music for the whole station and a currently voice competition spots and commercials for a few small market stations here in the uk.
Goals for the future would be to get some work for a decent sized station working within imaging production and branding, spend more time working on my own vo talent and just enjoying working within a great industry.
About your entry: My entry was R2D2 and C3po having a robot conversation about CHASE. C3PO comes out with all the pointless information, R2D2 makes fun of C3PO by playing sound bites of audio as jokes….

A very short bio: I’ve been in radio about 5 years now. Started in promotions, and have worked my way up to where I am now. I feel in love with radio imaging about 2 years ago, and have had the opportunity to work some incredible VO talents. I’d love to do more! 🙂
About your entry: First, I have to give credit to Doug de Nance! What an incredible voice talent. His read really made the entry what it was. I had a couple ideas about a “Chase” themed reality show – Doug and I brainstormed back and forth and finally landed on the idea of a “Survivor” theme. Thank you to everyone that voted for us! It really means a lot!
Name: Roy Hall
Place of origin: Ireland
Where you currently Live: Northern Ireland
Where you currently Work: Commercial producer for a 6 station cluster plus Home studio
A very short bio: Was born, grew up loving radio, became a mobile dj, became a radio dj, started making imaging and bits for my show, became better at doing that than being a radio dj. Been a full time producer the last 8 years.
Love everything about radio and love producing, you give 10 people a dry liner to produce and you’ll get 10 different versions, there’s no right and no wrong, just maybe more popular or more current or topical.
Jumped to protools 2 years ago, constantly building a library of content, recording shows, grabbing instrumentals and accapellas, movie sound tracks etc. produced a lot of packages for stations here in Ireland, Done a bit for US clients too as well as producing work parts/content for 2 different monthly imaging services, thats something I would love to do more of. Beatmixes a specialty… I think.
About your entry: Decided to enter because it sounded a fun thing to do, So this was produced on my sort of second back up machine using adobe 1.5 with waves bundle. I wanted to do a chase sequence which I did, but wanted to make it more relevant so I used sound tracks from popular tv shows and movies
first wast prison break
you hear a guy out of breath and the computer saying access denied as he furiously types into the key board then he gets the door open and I had English vo artist Tim Burden voice The Chase Is On, then lots of gun fire and explosions with music from the Matrix providing the soundtrack then into music from kill bill with a few karate sfx
car chase fx and explosions and finishing with music from transformers and a major explosion and a car crash, is he alive or dead, then you hear a faint heartbeat and then another and another finishing in style with Moby’s tune from the Borne Identity and end of transmission static beep type things.
