Student works on TV ad with Liverpool’s national treasures

A gifted student had an opportunity to work with Scouse royalty recently on a leading advertising campaign for big brand food manufacturer McCain.

HND Music Production student, Matthew Rawlinson (above right), worked with Liverpool comedian and actor Ricky Tomlinson on the frozen food giant’s latest 'We are Family' commercial, currently airing on TV screens. Ricky chose to complete work on the advert at Liverpool’s Vocal Booth studio in preference to a London commute to complete his post-production voiceover.

Course tutors and directors of the Vocal Booth studio, Mike Moran and Alan Watson, have built up a solid reputation in the industry over the past twenty years. Their work in the studio on specialist high quality, post-production audio services for broadcast, multi-media and film has led to important collaborations with both national and international film and TV companies, which they get their students involved with.

Mike said: “Matthew is one of a number of promising students involved in a range of commercial projects, which include post production in the Voice Booth or out on location with high profile feature films. We make sure students get as much exposure to live briefs as possible so they’re ready for the business in which they’ve planned a career.

“These live projects not only allow students to hone their practical skills – including meeting strict deadlines – but they also develop business and social skills, which are vital if they want to work in this multi-million pound industry of experts both in front and behind the scenes.”
