Spoken portraits

“In capturing [my parents’] voices so beautifully and with such clarity you have created one of the most treasured gifts I will ever receive. An heirloom painted of words. It was so exciting … to listen to in the car with my family on a long drive and felt very much like listening to a personal edition of desert island disks. Every story evoking wonderful childhood memories, each taking me on a rollercoaster of emotions as I learned things that neither have told me before. In many ways it was like hearing them in a new way. … Thank you so much for crafting such a lovingly edited collection of moments from their lives woven so seamlessly together in to the most beautiful volume.”

“The Spoken Portrait of my mother was done as a 90th birthday gift.  She absolutely loves it! However, it has in fact been as much a gift to ourselves as to her.  We now have this wonderful story of her life, in her own words, to treasure.  Rosie was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end and she really came to understand her “sitter”.  Rosie’s gentle, encouraging manner with my mother was especially appreciated.”

“You did an amazing job – and took all the worry and administration away from us.”
Andrew Burke, Chief Executive of the London Sinfonietta

“The testimonial programme you did for us is spectacular. It is such an unusual and wonderful thing to have done.”
Paul Zisman, Chair of the London Sinfonietta

“Thank you so much for developing the wonderful CD to celebrate my birthday! It was extremely imaginative of you to get it all together. The contributions from my friends of many years were most moving.”
Margareta, recipient of a spoken portrait as a surprise 80th birthday gift


“From the beautiful evocation of a fisherman’s life on the water to the fascinating insights into LUSH’s work reducing packaging waste, the podcasts were a pleasure to listen to.”
Andrew Paine, podcast commissioner at LUSH cosmetics, on the ‘Meet the Maker’ podcast series we produced for them 

“It sounds fantastic. I love how you’ve both managed to bring the paper-making process to life and add interest, through the script and field recordings. I could literally see the space you were describing through expertly told storytelling. The audio is crisp and clear, the editing tight and I love the space you’ve managed to create in what must have been quite a noisy environment.”
Andrew Paine, podcast commissioner at LUSH cosmetics on the episode about a master paper-maker

Video projects

I highly recommend Tickertape Productions. Rosie capably turned a very rough idea into a great promo video and podcast series.  I’m very happy with the results and the whole engagement process – very professional indeed.  Thanks so much for the wonderful experience from start to finish.
Adam Wells, Life Planner and Transition Coach

With short notice Tickertape stepped in and managed a full day’s filming with quiet authority and a calmness that helped to relax all of the staff members involved. Our company had to produce a film at short notice demonstrating a new product to help with a commercial presentation, and the team at Tickertape handled the brief serenely and efficiently.

Rosie second guessed our needs and her suggestions helped produce a video that not only helped win over the client and secure the account, but also resulted in the video being used by our client’s sale-force for further pitching.

I am sure we will use Tickertape again and have recommended their services to colleagues in other companies looking to stimulate their presentations.
