David Reviews

 Biting the hand that feeds us since 2002.

PODCAST - VAUGHAN & ANTHEA

In December, we spoke to Vaughan Arnell and Anthea Benton about their extraordinary partnership, and today we present to you the magnificent podcast which came out of that recording.

Vaughan and Anthea hinted at a reunion when they appeared on the CraftWorks stage last June but we had to wait until October for confirmation... when it was announced that they had directed House of Fraser's Christmas ad for Moxie Pictures.

During a wide-ranging discussion, the wonderful duo speak about their transition from music videos to TV advertising, and describe their approach to making commercials... as well as the reasons for their split and why they decided to reunite more than twenty years after parting company.

It was a pleasure to record and - we hope - you'll find it a pleasure to listen to.


The David Reviews podcasts would not be possible without the wonderful people at String & Tins. They provide studio facilities, a brilliant sound engineer, editing assistance, invaluable advice and unbeatable hospitality.
