It’s back to our regular format on the Soundstage this month after wrapping up another inspiring 3-month presentation of the RAP Awards! We kick things off with our next Editor’s Choice Award winner, a nicely done creative commercial from Fraser Manning at X92.9 in Calgary. Track 2 is the promo Dave Foxx references in his Production 512 column on page 3. Commercials are on tracks 3-11, beginning with some good work from another SAIT student making a debut on the Soundstage on track 3. Promos are on tracks 12-17. Track 18 comes with some info from producer Matt Redmond: We recently had a fireworks display in Bunbury for the Australia Day celebrations. Tim Hammond did a 25 minute piece for it. Attached is 1 minute 30 sec piece of it which I contributed, in reflection of a recent natural disaster which affected people locally. And we wrap it up on track 19 with a montage of imaging promos from Chris Diestler for AAA formatted KBAC’s 20th anniversary.
