A few weeks ago I completed scoring this charming animated short called ‘Dresslocked’. It was the final year project for talented Teesside animation student Domareen Fox, and allowed me to break in a few new sound libraries, as well as record plenty of sound effects and foley work. I’m always up for more of this kind of work, so please get in touch if you’d like me to score your film/game project.
Here’s a fun little project for which I handled the audio. It’s a set of three World Cup-themed mini games, comprising Infinite Dribble, Space Kick, and Shootout. You use your phone/tablet as a controller, linked with a Chrome browser session to play (though you can use the phone/tablet as the sole screen, too). You can read a little more about the technical showcase on the Chrome Blog.
The animated documentary I scored at the start of the year, Centrefold, has now been publicly released, so you can either watch the Vimeo embed below, or head over to www.thecentrefoldproject.org to watch and comment.
It’s officially an award-winner too, winning ‘Best Animation’ at the 2012 SCINEMA Film Awards!
Centrefold has been busy sparking debate in the media, getting a mention on BBC Radio 4, a feature in The Huff Post, Rude Magazine, plus plenty of local media coverage around the North East. It’s wonderful to see it making waves. If you’re interested in following updates to the project, keep an eye on their Facebook page.
Oh, and I hope you like the music/sound design, too!
I recently completed composing the soundtrack and sound design for Centrefold, a short animated documentary about labiaplasty. The film illustrates the personal accounts, hopes and fears, of three women following their decisions to undergo surgery. Here’s the trailer:
During the project I familiarised myself with Camel Audio‘s excellent Alchemy synth, so you can expect to hear some evolving synth drones and sample-mangling pads in the score. Imperfect Samples‘ warm Braunschweig piano sample library also came in very handy, affording me the kind of warm, intimate piano chords that I can’t seem to get enough of lately.
It was also superb fun being able to get my hands dirty handling the sound design for the film. Plenty of fabric-rustling, cutlery-clinking, field recording shenanigans involved, including the implementation of sophisticated GLOVEBIRD™ technology.
The full film’s due for launch this summer, following its tour of film festivals.
