Sam Cavanagh Joins Thinkerbell in Head of Production Role

Sam Cavanagh is joining the Thinkerbell team as head of production.

Cavanagh was most recently the national executive producer at Southern Cross Austereo where he produced awarding winning shows such as 'Hamish & Andy', and 'Kennedy Molloy'. 

Says Margie Reid, managing partner, Thinkerbell: "Thinkerbell has taken an unconventional approach to our Head of Production hire to shake up traditional production. Sam has built up an expertise in fast, always on, and fully integrated production techniques during his time in radio. He's produced everything from commercials, crazy events, long form content, and some of Australia's biggest social media communities."

"The world of production has been disrupted completely. We wanted someone who has got a genuine pedigree in making all types of production pieces. Interestingly, this type of person is still relatively rare to find.  Further, Sam is a genuinely talented person, with a vibe that's a mix of both 'complete calmness' and 'let's get shit done'."

Says Cavanagh" "I'm beyond excited to work with the team at Thinkerbell. I will work with the Thinkers and Tinkers to deliver world class work. We'll also ensure that our production capabilities are never 'set and forget'. When we put things out into the world the most interesting part of the production process starts - not stops. The 'live to air' nature of radio has been the perfect training ground for listening to how an audience reacts to content and responding accordingly."

Whilst at SCA Cavanagh was voted best producer in the country at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards a record four times for his work with Hamish & Andy.  

Hamish & Andy had this to say: "Sam is a master at getting the most out of content for everyone involved. Whether it's the advertising client, us as performers or the listeners involved. He's the master at maximising an idea across multiple channels, simultaneously."

Cavanagh is also an advisor for podcast and online audio publishing platform Omny and runs a small podcast network with Wil Anderson and Charlie Clausen called TOFOP Productions.
