After fifteen successful years running Beamo Studios and Revolution Music, composer Brian Beamish has sold his music and sound recording companies to the Sandcastle Film Group, headed by Chris Cudlipp (pictured).
Beamish will continue to write and arrange music through Beamo, alongside the talented roster of composers Paul Gray, Brendan St Ledger and Vince Pizzinga.
“I’ve been trying to do too much,” said Beamish. “I love composing and haven’t been doing it enough recently. Running both Beamo and my ‘Best Ads On TV’ website has kept me out of the studio. With Chris taking over Beamo and our recording and publishing label Revolution Music, I can do more of what I love, composing music”.
The Sandcastle Film Group has wanted to invest in a music and post studio for some time but was prepared to wait for the right opportunity. “I believe Beamo has the best roster of composers in the country.” said Cudlipp. “Paul, Brendan, Vince and Brian are all exceptionally talented musicians. Their diverse styles mean Beamo can write, arrange and perform music in any genre.”
Beamish is happy that someone as experienced as Cudlipp is taking over. “Chris’ background as an award winning copywriter, creative director and director means he completely understands what creatives and producers want from a music and sound studio.”
“It’s a great business,” said Cudlipp. “We’ll continue to offer agencies a complete music and sound post solution, as well as specialised services in music supervision, music licencing, song searches and voice casting. I know our composers, sound designers, engineers and producers will bring something special to every project.”
But Cudlipp is adamant about one thing. “Unlike other studios, there will be no ghost writing at Beamo. I can guarantee that when clients come to Beamo they will be getting a score from the composer they brief, not from some anonymous junior, which is a worrying trend that’s crept into the industry recently.”
With five impeccably equipped studios in McMahons Point just off the Harbour Bridge and a studio in LA, Cudlipp is expecting strong growth for Beamo and Revolution Music.

Now I'm confused. When I want a laugh I won't know whether to ask to see 'that' shot of Catmur's head or this shot of Cudlipp's hair?

That's a bad pic of Chris, he probably got it done next door at Red Rocket.
Chris and the others at Beamo are great peops. Good luck!

Actually I think Lynchy was being nice.

Chris has much wilder hair than the shot above.

I seem to recall Afro days in the not so distant past.

I'm not in advertising but all the above comments probably are from people who are. It's typical of what has given the industry a name as being full of superficial wankers. Maybe all those who write comments should have their mug shots posted so that we can put shit on them.

The majority of the comments above are the reason why the advertising industry has a reputation for being full of superficial tossers.

Note the not-so-subtly placed earphones around this dude's neck and you'll realise that this tosser brought it on himself.

As well as being warranted, the comments are piss-funny, which is what makes this industry great. So totter off back to your cubicle - those spreadsheets aren't going to finish themselves.

Well said 2.39.

6.23/6.26/6.29 - if you find this industry too aggressive you should be in a more considerate business like building, meat processing or steel work.

Grow a set and stop complaining.
