Katie Rankin at Essendon Airport, Melbourne.
My Plan For World Domination:
I would like to work for someone who wants a Genuine Australian Voice for Radio, Television, Advertising, Video Games, Documentary, Film or something entirely different.
If you feel that my voice would work for you, then let's talk,
It's really that simple.
There are examples of me yapping away on the home page ;)
I was trained for Radio at "The Radio Works" a Radio School which was in South Melbourne, right next to Channel Seven at the time.
My Teachers were Chris Heaney of 3XY, and Steve Dale of FOX-FM.
This is where I learnt how to Announce, Produce Voice Overs, Edit Tapes, Read the news and pretty much every aspect of working in a radio station.
I then worked for three years at RIM-FM (97.9FM) in Melton, where I wrote scripts for promos, produced recorded work, and had my own radio show.
Modern technology means that slashing two-track tape is a thing of the past, I use Audacity to record and edit my work, and then can save to almost any format desired.
I can record video in various formats.
I mostly use Sony Vegas, but have used Adobe Premiere too.
My experimental record review series is rather basic at the moment, I hope to get some better lighting and a better editing program, and take it from its current form, to a much more polished look.
I've always loved collecting records, and would love to continue, but it's quite expensive to do as records cost a fortune these days, so if you're a band or a record company, and you'd like me to review your record, then please get in touch.
I love my eighties music, so if I ever manage to get a limited edition in coloured vinyl, then I'm a very happy lad indeed.
But my tastes are fairly wide, so I'd be happy to review anything for you,
all I ask is that I get to keep the record that you've sent to me.
Air Digital Radio
Air Digital Radio was an experimental, internet Radio Station which I ran by myself for a few months, it was fun, but too costly and I had to give it up.
In 2005 I was treated for cancer, and although I'm clear, I have a few problems due to the treatments I had.
Therefore I would normally work at home, in my own time, But I could possibly work with others in a studio in Melbourne.
I regret that I cannot travel further than that.
