I have just completed work on Carl Stella’s new film “The Way Home”
Shot in japan by Rudi Serra and fantastic music by Justin De-senzo.
We mixed it 5.1 and it was very nice to be working with great production sound again after the previous show. We also got to give our Foley collection plugins and libarys a run.
I have just finished an intense 6 week sound design and mix for a Australian film commission funded web series called movement.
Unfortunately for us the location audio was in bad shape when we got the edits, poor mic placement on some episodes mixed with some other decent recording meant we had a mish mash and very inconsistent starting point. We invested heavily in IZotopes new RX 5 and Altiverb, as well as every ADR and editing trick we knew, lots of automation and some heavy handed Backgrounds to get it over the line, a very exhaustive process to say the least.
All in all though it is a good series, well conceived and written by Maria Angelico, Directed by Jessica Barclay Lawton and produced by Lucy Hayes.
We were lucky to get feet n frames on board for foley and Adam and I really pitched in to make it presentable to the world. I would say given the starting point i am happy with what we came up with, although it will never reach the height of my sound expectations.
All in all there is some very funny moments to be had in this show.
I am always happy to support Youthworx projects, they are a fantastic organisation that really help a wide range of young people. this show “Returning to Guugu Yimithirr Sea Country – The Hope Vale Pelican Project” Directed by kelly West was a great insight int the young people re connecting with their history and engaging in their future.
note: boats make for loud interviewing environments….
I got to spend time with the Carben and The Royals crew again for another Deakin shoot and post edit, This time I spent the day with a sloth, hotdog, robot and ghost smashing things and filming in slow motion. I got some great sounds on the day and spent a day and a bit sound designing the final piece which was super fun. Lots of slowing things down, adding explosions and layers of mayhem!!
I did a day recording for a spot for peter Alexander, although i didn’t get any great Pj’s i did get to work with Liam Gilmour (DP) and Tom savage (Gaffer) again.
It was all pretty straight forward, I managed to get a nice boom track as the lapel was getting sticky on his silk shirt, damn you silk shirts, damn you to hell.
I have just completed two TVC spots for Pure Blonde beer.
Working with Oh yeah Wow and Clemenger, It was a process of intense foley recording, location sound and sound design. Followed by the VO and ADR (done elsewhere). We then added a Mix by yours truly and the legend of a man Adam Hunt.
