I was just starting to miss the sheer creative liberty found when designing sound for animations; it’s born mute and has to build its sonic skeleton from scratch. Farrows of Norwich got in touch and asked us to provide the sound post production on an advert for Almary Green. Will Farrow had done a superb job on the visuals, and left the playing field wide open for a lot of sound ideas. We got stuck into recording original Foley; capturing atmospheres and serving up some suitable sound FX. We can never have enough of this kind of work, so hopefully Farrows can keep more of the same coming in this year!
March 2015 - Doppler and Dubbs - Sound Post Production
Short films of this creative caliber don’t come around very often! Madeleine is a slice of life, a blink of an eye within a surreal New Jersey suburban backdrop. Director and Cinematographer Ollie Veryschole guides us through this dreamlike landscape with a majestic intensity. The opportunity for sound post production was inspiring and limitless, we experimented with undulating sonic rhythms, hyper real soundscapes and warped animal noises to score this time-traveling experience. Ollie has been an absolute pleasure to work for, allowing us complete creative freedom for sound design and storytelling. With very little dialogue it is one of those projects that every sound editor yearns for; the opportunity to serve sound as the fiber for the narrative trajectory, allowing the audience to immerse themselves in a unique experience that inspires and challenges expectations. We would like to congratulate Ollie for this mini masterpiece in filmmaking, producer Dee Meaden for her own tireless determination and sharp attention to detail and John Opstad for his most beautiful score.
