I’ve had the immense pleasure of working on the BBC Supermovers project over the past few months! Supermovers (launched January 2018) is an exciting new project brought to you by BBC Learning and the Premier League to get primary aged children more active (and learning while they move!).
My involvement in the project was to compose, produce and master thirty tracks for the project (including the campaign’s flagship promotion song) and also to direct the majority of the vocal recording sessions (which included working with Hacker the Dog!). It was an immensely fun and exciting project to be involved with and I really look forward to more work in the children’s television field soon.
You can see all the videos created for the project here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/supermovers. Tracks I produced included; Relative Clauses with Max and Harvey, Word Families with Tyler and Sasha, Handling Money with The Next Step, Capital Letters and Full Stops, KS1 Money, Position and Direction, Adjectives and Adverbs with Jonny and Inel, Digits and Numbers with Marlon Wallen as well as all the times tables songs for the project..
Here are a few examples of the work I produced for the project via Twitter:
