Can you believe we’re wrapping up our 32nd year of business? Time flies when you’re having a blast, and what a time we’ve had! We’ve been busy doing what we do best and producing some fantastic audio and video projects for our amazing clients. Here’s a sneak peek into the highlights from 2023…

We kicked off the year with ‘Echt Nicht Schlect!’, a long-awaited video project we created and produced for the Oxford University Press KS3 German course ‘Echt’. Set in the style of a game show, and hosted by the energetic character Fritz Flitz, four teens go head-to-head in the educational (but of course FUN) games!

We were super excited to work with ReD Associates one again and produce the second series of their Podcast ‘Phenomena’. Eliot Salandy Brown takes the mic, chatting with both ReD partners and industry experts to discuss how a deeper understanding of human behaviour shapes better business strategy.

In May, we produced an audio resource for the Cambridge University Press AS Level Spanish course. With specific regional accents from across Latin American and Spain required, authenticity was the name of the game. We completed this project with the help of some familiar Footstep voice talent, as well as handpicking some brilliant new voices too.

Big cheers for the Footstep fam! Our wonderful Will Best co-presented the Big Brother reboot alongside AJ Odudu. From our screens to the big leagues, we’ve followed Will’s journey from the day he gave up his job in advertising to pursue broadcasting! And over on the stage, the talented Alex Perez just finished starring in ‘Amor de Don Perlimplín con Belisa en su Jardín’ at the Cervantes Theatre! Alex worked with us years ago as a young Spanish voice actor, and we’re so proud to see him shine. We’re like proud parents over here. Go on guys!

And lastly, celebrations were in order for our friends ‘Sensations English’ as they snagged not one but TWO awards this year! Learning on Screen: Online Educational Resource Award in May, and Comenius EduMedia Award in June. We’re so proud to be the creative brains behind all of the audio and video content at Sensations English, who are now multi-award winners. Wow!

As we gear up for 2024, we’ve got a fantastic GCSE language audio project in the works. French, German, Spanish – we’re diving into it all! And it’ll be with the help of some familiar Footstep family, as well as some new members! It’s going to be epic, and we can’t wait to hit record and keep on making education… Fun!

Here’s to all the projects we’ve done, and all the projects we’re yet to do. We’re so proud of everything we create here at Footstep Productions, and boy, do we do love what we do. Onwards and upwards!
