Design Museum

Design Museum

PROJECT

The Design Museum is devoted to contemporary design in every form, from architecture and fashion, to graphics, products and industry.

To accompany the Design Museum's Cycle Revolution exhibition, Far Beyond Media were commissioned to create a podcast which featured the different 'tribes' of cycling.  

SUMMARY

Recording with ‘Thrill Seakers’, ‘High Performers’, ‘Urban Riders’ and ‘Cargo Bikers’, the podcast featured in-depth interviews and cycling sounds, mixed and edited to match the simple, clean-cut style of the exhibition.

 
The Guardian

The Guardian

PROJECT

The Guardian has been one of the leading producers of podcasts in the UK over the past ten years. Far Beyond Media were commissioned by The Guardian to produce a new series of podcasts featuring training sessions for runners planning to enter a marathon in the spring.

SUMMARY

Working alongside a running coach, we put together six training sessions to help runners improve strength, and stamina and running times. All sessions were narrated, with a coach letting the listener know exactly which exercises to do and when to do them. The sessions were punctuated by a music mix which matched the tempo of the specific exercise.

The marathon series follows on from our successful beginner and advanced 'Guardian Guide to Running Podcasts' from a couple of years ago.

 
Artichoke

Artichoke

PROJECT

Artichoke is a creative company that puts on extraordinary shows which change the way people look at the world. For the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London, their 'London's Burning' festival offered the chance to contemplate the impact of the Fire on the architecture, outlook and infrastructure of the City of London. Artichoke asked Far Beyond Media to create a series of podcasts around the various 'London’s Burning' talks and events.

SUMMARY

In each podcast we recorded a speaker on location at a landmark institution in the City of London. The different talks and readings gave a modern perspective on this huge moment in our history. The first podcast featured actor Simon Callow talking about the Fire and reading extracts from John Dyden’s poem, Annus Mirabilis, recorded at the top of the Monument.
