What an amazing night. Sydney Ent Cent. Timomatic. Jack Vidgen. Slime. What more could anyone want!!
It all started when I was approached to arrange / produce the track for a promo campaign for Nickelodeon's 2011 Kids Choice Awards. We wanted to use a fresh new singer, and having worked on Fame with the incredible Mr. Timomatic, he was a natural choice. In one of those awesome coincidences, it turned out Tim was gigging not far from my studios, so I wandered on down, and in spite of my award winning personality skills, Tim still said yes, and not long after we started working on the track.
There's a reason why Tim is now topping the charts. He's frickin' great. We had an awesome time working on the track, with Nickelodeon's Creative Director Kristie Phelan, and before we knew it, we were making a new version which opened the whole show. Can't tell you what it felt like in the Ent Cent, hearing a track I made, watching an unbeliveable singing and dancing performance from Mr Tim!
I then had the absolute pleasure of working with one of the most talented young singers I have ever worked with - Australia's Got Talent Winner - Jack Vidgen.
Everyone had been trying to get a performance from Jack for the awards, and when Katy Perry's "Firework" was suggested, I was again given the opportunity to produce the audio track for the show. Jack's performance on the night was just so engaging. I remember hearing the audience sing along, while Jack nailed his vocal. A bit of Pyro, some cool choreography - another great performance and one of the real highlights of the night.
Being a part of something so huge and exciting was a real career highlight for me. Hopefully can join in again for the 2012 KCAs. Thanks to Kristie Phelan, Timomatic, Jack Vidgen and all at Nick, Sony and the KCAs!
