In the year 2043, only one news station gives you your city, your news, first time, every time!
A bit dramatic? Well it should be… New San Francisco Voice is the make-believe news program I have created in a series of promotional videos to bring awareness to a fantastic Kickstarter campaign. It’s for one of the most technically brilliant PC adventure game series’ of all time: The Tex Murphy Series.
Being a long-time fan of the series (and I mean LONG time; since 1994) I was always fascinated by the universe created by the guys from More >
Hey Guys, Mat here. You may know me as the guy who made the New San Francisco Voice news episodes. Some of you also might know me as Unofficial Tex Murphy forum member “Cubase”.
The reason for this message is to give everyone a fan’s perspective on how the campaign is progressing and to provide some good advice for the continued success of your support, going forward.
Firstly, good job!
For all of those who have been pledging their money and monitoring its progress, you are doing a fantastic job keeping the dream alive! I’m sure Chris, Aaron and the rest of the More >
If you hadn’t noticed, I’m not just a fan of movies and film making, I’m also a huge fan of gaming. But of all the games I have played, none stand out as much as the Tex Murphy series.

Yesterday was an interesting day. Same as any other day really, except if you went out on your lunch break you might’ve noticed a rooftop concert happening in the middle of Circular Quay. Marty Rhone and the Beatle Boys decided to re-create the famous Beatles rooftop concert from London in 1969, this time performing in front of a busy Sydney CBD overlooking the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and many other Sydney Harbour landmarks.
The concert was held to promote the upcoming Australian National Tour of “Cliff Joins the Beatles”, a musical fantasy show set in an alternate reality where Cliff Richard More >
Web design and development: Sometimes it takes the opportunity to conquer a large, intimidating and extremely challenging project before you realise: it can be scary stuff.

It is, to date, the most extensively structured and coded website I have ever had to construct. In this article I will detail the process, the tears and the triumphs that became the Bandwood website.
We begin with the original website (best viewed in Internet Explorer 5 or greater, by the way!):
In 1969, there was no internet, no YouTube, no Facebook… how on earth did people find out about things!?
Let me introduce you to the latest show which I have been given the opportunity to design the complete marketing collateral. It’s called ‘Cliff Joins The Beatles’, and it’s a musical fantasy starring Marty Rhone & the Beatle Boys. The show plays on the idea of what would happen if Cliff Richard joined the Beatles after his split with the Shadows in 1969. Quite an interesting concept, and an equally as interesting (or challenging) advertising campaign would be needed to help bring the More >
