We recently commissioned Inner Ear to create a short video to promote our Student Network. From the initial meeting to understand our needs Dougal and his team were friendly and efficient and helped me to form my ideas for the project. On the filming day the interviews were conducted in a friendly way which put us at ease. I'm really pleased with the final video and would definitely recommend Inner Ear to others. A very creative and professional team.

I was put through to Dougal/Inner Ear by the Cultural Enterprise Office to receive some insight into my online art platform. Dougal is incredibly easy to talk to and dives right into your ideas and thoughts by offering great feedback and knowledge. I feel as though my business objectives are a lot clearer after talking to Dougal and I can progress with more confidence and ideas.

I was referred to Dougal/Inner Ear via the Cultural Enterprise Office in order to discuss podcasting. Dougal had some excellent suggestions on how to increase the visibility of my podcast, and was a veritable font of knowledge. Highly recommended.

I had a very positive experince working with Inner Ear over the weekend of Granite Noir - Aberdeen's crime writing festival. Inner Ear live streamed the whole festival and filmed interviews with all of the authors. The work, in both image and sound terms, was of high quaility and the whole Inner Ear team worked well with all staff and authors. I'd defitely work with them again.

Inner Ear Q&A

Inner Ear Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I love making things happen. I love creating entertaining and informative digital media content in many forms. I get involved in various aspects of a production but I most enjoy seeing a project through from concept to publication and gaging audience reaction. I love telling stories and working with interesting people to convey key messages.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I launched Inner Ear in October 2000 with a close friend from university to start our internet radio station project Radio Magnetic. We became really interested in online broadcast during our time at university through our success in developing the student radio station, SubCity Radio in Glasgow. We wanted to do something professional that gave us similar freedom of expression to that of student radio. Through building Radio Magnetic we pioneered the use of streaming media and digital programme making in Scotland, and the UK as a whole, which lead on to the dynamic mix of specialisms we have today to apply to client projects, and our own creative ventures.

Why should our clients choose you?

I care a lot about doing a good job. I work with talented, trustworthy, good, friendly people and am fortunate enough to attract clients with similar traits.
My specialist expertise has been acquired and honed over 20 years of innovation in digital media. I won't give up and consider "no" to be the last resort. There's usually a way to make something happen if you approach the challenge properly, with a mixture of logic and lateral thinking. Problem solving is second nature to me and I have a large "toolkit" at hand to utilise for any project.
One client said some kind words about us recently that I think sums up how people feel about me and my flexible freelance team:
"I worked with Dougal and his team on a very complicated shoot over 3 days with 6 models and lots and lots of props. This could have been a hard shoot but the guys worked like troopers and made my life a dream. I can honestly say it was the most relaxed and fun atmosphere I have had on a shoot to date."
Stephen Noble Content Director of Equator Group.

Music Supervision

Having been immersed in music since we launched Radio Magnetic in 2001, and with a team of music fans, DJs and musicians, we know what we’re doing with music. We source, select and sequence soundtracks for film, TV, web content and games including prime time BBC drama and live streamed theatre. We understand the complexities of negotiating copyright clearance for use of music too and can handle back office licensing admin. Drawing on the relationships we have with record labels, publishers and artists, we manage an ever-expanding catalogue of usable tracks which spans all genres. We also commission bespoke work from a network of highly regarded producers and composers to compliment the tone and mood of your piece. We take part in the conversation around the music as our community managers answer questions about music during broadcast. And we create transmedia content to augment Inner Ear’s music supervision services and provide a rich immersive experience for the audience. Let's chat about how we can soundtrack your show.
