Nowadays with distributors even keener to recoup their multi-million dollar budgets, they want you to know as much about a film as possible – which is fair enough. However this is where “spoilers” can also creep in. Some key plot points and even casting decisions can dull or ruin your movie experience before you even buy a ticket.
With this mind, No Spoiler Reviews was created.
The key to any podcast is to have a stong concept. No Spoiler Reviews’ podcast aims to tell you everything you need to know without giving away any of the surprises. No more glancing through film reviews, reading only the last paragraph or counting the number of stars that a movie has.
“We present the film as it should be: a spectacle to be seen and not spoilt.”
Working with the No Spoiler Reviews guys we developed a series of potentially recurring segments for the show that would help break up the show and give it a familiar format without interfering with the freshness of the two hosts’ banter.
Recording at one of the hosts appartments we sound treated the kitchen for each episode and recorded on high quality microphones. Later as the show developed into a solo recording we set about sound treating a smaller room which could easily be re-purposed into a recording studio with minimal effort.
Once the podcast had been recorded the individual tracks for each presenter and interviewees was cut together in Black Design Fairlight where it was mixed and mastered for later distribution through Apple, Amazon, Google, Spotify and all the other main podcasting channels.
To aid the organic growth of the show’s audeince we developed a series of blip-vert videos that would showcase the style and the humour of the show. When the show changed later to a single host we developed a different style of teaser that would listeners could expect from every episode.
