S3Ep6: The End

Could this be the end of the 4am Creative Advertising Bureau?

Ian and our merry band of creatives have been called to the Chairman’s office, this can’t be good?  Will the plug be pullled?  Will they all be made to reapply for their jobs?  Will the coffee machine ever get fixed?  All may be revealed in this thrilling finale to series 3.  Or something.

Elsewhere, Lennard and Darby are trying to diffuse the situation, Helen and Ian are struggling with information overload and Derek takes an unappreciated call.  Meanwhile, poor Tim can’t seem to get the wording right and Live Tweeting takes on a whole new level.

Don’t miss the final episode of 4am CAB… or you’ll have to buy the Boxset. The end is Nigh, or is that near?

S3Ep4: Classy

The 4am Creative Advertising Bureau have a new assignment.

The Japanese want to take an English delicacy and rebrand it.  Fleur and Martin are ready to take on the considerable challenge but Brett has been listening to chinese whispers. This could all go to pot if they’re not careful.

Rupert and Beryl are breaking up whereas Mr Darcy is about to the pop the question and our roving reporter ventures oop north.  Debbie, meanwhile, is finding James a bit hard to swallow.

4am CAB puts on it’s airs and graces before embarrassing itself by using the wrong fork.  It’s time for the fourth episode of Series 3 – what oh!

Watch out for the Angry priest!

S3Ep3: Work It Out

It’s very quiet at the 4am Creative Advertising Bureau today.

Cheryl calls in a favour from Martin who takes his new responsibilities very seriously.  With great power comes a great deal of arsing around, especially when the coffee machine is still knackered.  Meanwhile, Brett has lost his passport, Fleur has lost the plot and Ian has lost the thing he finds most precious.  Oh and what do you think of when you hear Turkey Timeshare?

We have an extremely limited range of actors for hire, we eavesdrop on a couple of unconventional interviews and all the while James is struggling to pick up his daily perk me up.   Also, if they can get their act together, The Mob might just have the answer to all their problems.

4am CAB dusts off it’s best suit and joins the sweaty commute for the third episode of Series 3

Oh, and watch out for Nigel.

S2Ep7: Christmas Special

The studio is booked and the actors are primed, everything is set for the final curtain (is there a curtain in podcasting?!)  The only problem is, well, Lee.  He’s not turned up.  What will the gang do if Lee doesn’t show?  Why is there no script?  And is Rachel real?  There’s only one way to find out.

Meanwhile, Gary is settling down to open the Christmas presents he’s bought himself, Helen is talking to herself and Facebook have a brand new app to get you in the spirit.  And there’s a half written sketch about stuffing too.

Merry Christmas to you all!

S2Ep5: Waaaahhhh!

The birds and bees are still asleep but Lisa is feeling the pressure, literally.  Mike is in denial about becoming a father, which is not what the situation calls for, so he’s put in charge of organising a cab to the hospital.  That’s going to go well then.

Meanwhile, Svetlana has all but given up on love and Derek & Merrick take to the skies.  We launch a brand new make over show, Changing You with Marcelle & Dave and learn what it’s really like to be a professional Voice Over Voice Over-er.  And if you’ve ever wanted to quit smoking, we have just the product for you.

Another installment of 4amcab comes kicking and screaming into the world.

The actors all gathered together in a basement room and we set the hard disc recorder going.  While you wait for the results, pop on over to the 4amcab Company page and see who the actors all are.  Also, you have just enough time to listen to all of the first series again.  All our previous episodes are available to listen to on the website or you can head over to iTunes and grab them all from there.  While you’re on iTunes, feel free to subscribe and you’ll get every episode as they are published.

So, now begins the big job of the edit.  See you all on the other side. 

The next 4amcab arrives on the 1st of May, make sure you’re along for the ride.

Video Extra: Behind The Scenes

When we recorded the Christmas Special of 4amcab way back in December of last year, we decided it might be a nice extra treat to do a bit of behind the scenes filming.  I took along a camera phone and did my best in amongst directing and recording the episode.  So, join us in a back room in the basement of the Alban Arena in St Albans to see how the show is put together.  Included in the vodcast, for that’s what a podcast with pictures is called, we’ll see the actors running through some of the scenes and also hear the final mix that was included in the series finale.

The real reason we all do this, though, is to have an excuse to go down the pub, so we did a bit of filming over a pint or two afterwards.  A big thanks to Chris Baker, Chris Luck, Anna MacLeod Franklin, Will Franklin, Jo Emery, Dan Warren and Helen Miller for not only being flippin’ brilliant in the show but also for agreeing to let me film them without giving any notice whatsoever.

News about Series Two of 4amcab will emerge shortly but in the meantime, here’s a look at some of the faces behind the characters from the show.  Enjoy.
