The Museum of London asked us to create a series of audio descripton podcasts to help make the museum’s collections more accessible to visitors, especially those with visual impairments.
How do you train an international team of officers, all of whom have different approaches to filming stories? This was the challenge set for us by animal welfare charity, The Brooke.
We led an audio production workshop to help London Youth gather young people’s views about age and ageing. After learning about audio and interviewing techniques, the young people interview each other and members of the public about how they felt about getting older.

The RNIB commissioned us to deliver a tailor-made training workshop to help its web and events teams understand how audio and podcasts could work for them.
A vital part of the BLF’s work is telling the public how organisations have benefited from lottery funding. Keen to explore new ways of telling these stories, they asked us to develop a series of podcasting workshops for their communications, marketing and regional teams.
The Blue Cross had developed a series of audio ‘petcasts’, but felt that the material they were producing wasn’t fulfilling the full potential of the podcast format. They asked us to work with them to come up with a fresh approach for their podcasts.
London Youth commissioned us to create an audio evaluation CD and short film for their YouthWorks youth worker training scheme.
