Saturday October 21st is the last OPEN DAY this year. The last chance for you (and your family and friends) to check-out our world-class studios and facilities, meet our top Academic team, and register for the career of your dreams!

If this blog reads a bit like a ‘RADIO COMMERCIAL’, it’s because… the very words above have already been carefully crafted and produced into a highly polished radio ad ready for broadcast over the weekend and the week leading up to OPEN DAY!


The Making of a ‘Magic’ Radio Ad

RAE de JAGER (Head of Institute): “This October, over the last holiday break, we gave a group of our best students the opportunity to extend their portfolios – working up some new radio commercial magic – announcing our forthcoming OPEN DAY on Saturday 21st October. ”

The hard-selling radio spot will be broadcast over 2 weeks on the popular ‘MAGIC 828’ AM radio station and on our own Campus Radio Station.

The spot is a very tight 40 seconds in duration. And Greg Smith – the veteran adman and copywriter who led the recording sessions, certainly made every second count. The concept, as well as energy and feel of the end product is superb… world-class!”

GREG SMITH: “The script was intended to be very challenging, demanding expert editing and equally tight voice performances. Once again I am amazed by the extremely positive can-do attitude of the selected student team.Rickileigh Picture

Chad Niewenhuis, an experienced college intern, guided and greatly assisted the student audio engineers. He also freed me up to concentrate on the final creative product, and directing the voice artists – who are also all students of the college.”

RAE de JAGER: “It’s this ‘hands-on’ approach – in all our courses and special projects – that equips and enables our graduates to not only succeed in finding employment in the real world, but also, to rise swiftly to the top, in their chosen fields.

Proof of our success is the fact that, each year, Cape Audio College manages to assist top graduates in finding employment – both locally and internationally.  Last year alone, Cape Audio College managed to place no less than 40 top graduates with top companies! “Rae and Greg Rp1
