Stories of lynn exhibition audio

As part of the team commissioned to provide a beacon based audio trail around the Stories of Lynn exhibition in the centre of King's Lynn, and around the historic heart of the town, I researched locations and storylines, wrote 90+ scripts, recruited local voices to act as narrators and historical characters, and directed recording within the studio at KLFM.

I devised this trail around Middlesbrough - it included fifteen places of interest including statues to long forgotten heroes of the town, along withbuildings and structures such as the Tees Transporter Bridge. These were brought to life with people's actual words and dramatic reconstructions.
