String and Tins

Co-founded by Sam Brock, Will Cohen and Mike Bamford just a few years ago, String & Tins has rapidly established itself as a perfect all-in solution for a wide variety of sound design projects.

Each sound designer is also a composer, enabling them to meet all the needs of a soundtrack from start to finish.

They are also, it has to be said, a great bunch of lads.

"Tour de Formby"
Here's a blast from the past. Boddingtons is back on the telly and they've brought Melanie Sykes along en'all. Older viewers and students of advertising will probably recall a series of classic commercials featuring the model-turned-TV presenter. In each - as here - the viewer was fooled into thinking they were watching something earnest before the rug was pulled from beneath their feet by Sykes's broad northern vowels.
