What we can do for you

Far Shoreline knows about the art of story telling. We draw on this and our 20 years of production expertise to create, develop and deliver professionally produced, high quality spoken-word audio, carefully tailored to the requirements of the client.

What kind of content do we produce? All sorts. Interviews. Podcasts. Online guides. Discussions…the possibilities are endless.

Who are our clients? NGOs. Universities. Schools. Small and large businesses. Local government…to mention just a few.

Online audio is fast becoming a powerful communication tool. It helps attract and retain new audiences and is an integral part of social media campaigning. And it’s much more cost effective to produce than video.
