The challenge

John Marshall Media needed complete control of administering its voice artists, projects and audio samples, all behind a secure account login and password.

John Marshall Cheary, CEO, Founder and Chairman of John Marshall Media, was seeking a custom platform on which to store all of the company’s existing voice talent and register new talent. The second requirement was the ability to create, share and invite talent to enrol in audio projects, whether these projects are for storytelling, education or other voice-over work.

The solution

Noldor developed a solution hosted on Amazon Web Services, Amazon’s reliable, scalable, and inexpensive cloud computing service. Using CakePHP, an open-source, rapid development framework and open-source database MySQL, we created a custom platform for the John Marshall Media team, enabling them to administer talent, create categorised projects, invite talent to audition, change profile details, and upload photos and audio samples, all in an easily searchable and filterable solution.
