London, UK (June 18, 2008)–The Voice And Music Company directors Kim Goody and Alan Coates are composing new songs for the second series of Roary The Racing Car, a stop frame animated children’s TV series produced by Chapman Entertainment.
All of the songs are being recorded at the company’s Soho Square facility while the main studio one is also being used to record the voices of the characters and narrators, including Peter Kay, who takes on the role of Roary’s chief mechanic, Big Chris.
Keith Chapman, creative director of Chapman Entertainment, says, “Kim and Alan have been involved with Roary the Racing Car from the outset and have composed some fantastic songs that really capture the imagination of our young audiences. They are incredibly talented and are always my first choice for composition, not just because they understand what children want but also because of the standard of their productions.
“This series is the first we have undertaken in The Voice And Music Company’s new facility and we’re really looking forward to the voice recording sessions because the new studios are brilliant.”
Series two of Roary The Racing Car involves 52 new episodes, matching the number created for series one, which is currently being shown on Five’s Milkshake! and Nick Jr. It is due to be completed in early 2009 and will be broadcast in the UK and in other key territories around the world.
The Voice And Music Company is also creating new songs and sound effects for the UK stage show of Fifi And The Flowertots, another popular children’s animated series created by Chapman Entertainment. Goody and Coates have been involved in composition and voice recording for the Fifi programs since the character was first created and were the obvious choice to handle songs and sound effects for the theatrical tour.
