Nathan Freeman - "Audio is a very effective way of creating a world that people can go to."
On this episode, our hosts Charlie Brown and Tim Utzig chat with Nathan Freeman from Granny Eats Wolf who tells us the latest from the cutting edge of soundscaping in the podcast industry. And while he is one of the great masters of his craft, Nathan emphasises the importance of collaborative team work for everything that he has achieved: "You got to work together with people you trust, that you think are great and believe in the same thing as you. The best I have ever done has never been on my own." Nathan Freeman is a multi award winning audio director and founder of Granny Eats Wolf - a creative studio that’s putting craft back at the heart of audio storytelling and branding. A former Executive Producer at BBC Sounds and BBC Voice & A.I, he has produced podcasts, radio shows, sonic brand identities and audio dramas for 20 years. Nathan has always pioneered new exciting ways to tell stories in audio, from spatial audio to the BBC’s first synthetic voice. And was behind the world’s first exploration into dynamic live radio promos. Today, he’s continuing that innovation, twisting into life sonic worlds with spatial audio for top tier brands. His credits include Wondery’s British Scandal podcast, Spyscape’s True Spies, The Woman In Black 3D audiobook and Audible’s The Signalman working alongside Academy Award winning Director, Sam Mendes.https://www.grannyeatswolf.com/about Hosted on Acast.
