We worked with our friends at Loco Motion Soho to create new drama TV sponsorship idents for Viking River Cruises. Steered by their agency, Atomic, Viking River Cruises broke with their tradition of showcasing their cruise ships and looked instead to attract viewers to the beautiful locations they can visit.
SNK's task was to design sounds to match compliment and enhance these images as well as craft bespoke music to underpin the brand message.
Final mixes on over 20 versions completed this project which airs currently on the UKTV network and ITV3. Have a watch of one of the 10 second spots here.
Teaming up once again with Golley Slater and producer Amanda Lowit, SNK Studios managed creative sound design, music composition and the final mix on both the English and Welsh TV commercials
Produced by Amanda Lowit at TV Production Office, these commercials will broadcast between the Summer and 1st December 2015 on channels in England and Wales promoting the new 'opt-out' policy for organ donation.
SNK Studios are delighted to be providing the voice recording over the next year or so for the new animated TV comedy series, Counterfeit Cat. The series is a co-production between Wildseed Studios and Tricon Kids & Family for Disney XD EMEA.
All of the voices will be recorded at our Tottenham Court Road studios and include some familiar names: British comic actor Marc Wootton (Nativity!) voices ‘Max’, the anxious but vain house-cat, alongside comedian Kayvan Novak (Phonejacker) who voices ‘Betty’.
Aimed at the 6-12 year old audience the series consists of 52 x 11 minute episodes and 11 x 2 minute shorts all airing on Disney XD.
The media event of 2015 so far saw the worldwide launch of everyone's favourite fantasy series, Game of Thrones - Season 5 with a star-studded party at the historic Tower of London! SNK worked closely with our good friends at Giggle Group to provide bespoke sound design for the beautiful projection mapped backdrop. Daenerys' dragons were flying around the side of the Tower throughout the evening before setting the Game of Thrones logo alight.
Rumbly fireballs accompanied by huge dragon screams and wing-flaps were created to add even more drama and excitement to the 40 odd cast members parading down the red carpet. The massive audio system gave us the opportunity to output via four separate channels - an interesting technical challenge we had to overcome in order to create an ultra-wide audio spread to the action.
Here's to April 12th and the first episode - can't wait! ;)
We've been squirrelling away writing original music and providing all the sound design, voice over recording and mixes for the latest moody, atmospheric and beautifully shot '13th Street' channel promos for NBC Universal - directed by Guy Soulsby.
Several versions of the audio were created to cater for different European territories, including 60, 30, 10 and 5 second cutdowns. In addition, SNK have recently been working with the lovely folk at NBC Universal to provide sound design and dubbing for other show promos, including the hit series 'American Crime'.
SNK Studios is delighted to have just recruited Chris Whiteside as an in-house engineer and sound designer. Chris joins us from Dublin's leading audio and video post house, Windmill Lane, and is already proving to be a fantastic asset to the business.
Chris' credits include RTÉ’s MasterChef and The Voice, as well as ADR work on Game Of Thrones and Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa to name just a few.
And don't worry, Chris usually looks happier in sessions than he does in this photo ;)
SNK have been nominated for ‘Best Music Composition'
We are delighted to announce that our work on Guy Soulsby’s DEVIL MAKES WORK has resulted in a nomination for 'Best Music Composition' in a short film at the Music & Sound Awards 2015 - the leading industry awards for music and sound design work in the UK.
The film has been garnering a lot of praise for its dark visuals and design already winning at The One Screen Film Festival in NYC and being screened at many festivals all over the world.
DEVIL MAKES WORK is a visually dark and sinister film about the devil's twisted view of humanity our hopes and dreams, life, love and struggle together with the sacrifices we make for success. Watch the trailer here:
In partnership with our sister company, specialist audio agency Red Apple Creative, we were delighted to work with gaming giant Ubisoft for the release of the hugely anticipated Far Cry 4. To celebrate the launch of the Playstation only game we produced two, immersive 3D audio pieces specifically for the Spotify platform. Have a listen to one of the ads here.
Good question!! Since the increase in headphone listening due to the ubiquity of Spotify and other digital platforms, 3D Audio takes advantage of this opportunity to invite the listener into the heart of the action, via our cutting edge 'binaural' audio production techniques. Combined with great scriptwriting, our quasi-surround sound mixing and detailed sound design techniques give the audience a first-person perspective, without having to leave their normal headphone-wearing environment.
We're currently discussing 3D Audio projects with brands that embrace creativity and wish to add impact to their commercial productions, including film, gaming, autos and youth clients.
