Visual Voice-overs

NOTE: The music clips in this video have been deliberately shortened Voice-overs with synchronised visuals are a great way to make your customers sit up and take notice of your promotions.

Out With The Playlist!

Anybody who listens to music can put together a playlist! They usually spurt of a list of their favourite tracks, or artists, give it a shuffle and consider the job done. A playlist, while perfect for private listening, is the WORST IDEA EVER in a bar or pub environment! Let’s look at what is specifically wrong with a “Playlist”: It is, inherently a list of music tracks. When played daily, it quickly becomes predictable, dated and tired. The selection is biased towards the creator’s own likes and mood: how can you be sure that matches what is best for...
