SNK Studios provide music and sound design for Jaguar's interactive installation at the 2012 Moscow Auto Show.
We were delighted to work in partnership with Dom Shovelton and creative agency Imagination on the music & sound design for the launch of Jaguar's new all-wheel drive model.
Two bespoke pieces of music were composed to picture by SNK's Kayvan Moghaddassi for two short films, along with sound design for eight technical animations which were synchronised with a moving scale model of the car's wheel base sat on top of an LED bed.
Orthodox selected for 'Crime and Punishment' short category at the 56th BFI London Film Festival.
We're delighted to have just completed all the Audio Post for Orthodox, the beautiful new (26 minute) short film from Tribeca award winning Director, David Leon. The film follows Benjamin, a Jewish ex-boxer, struggling to reintegrate with his community after release from prison.
The cast includes Stephen Graham, Michael Smiley, Giacomo Mancini and Christopher Fairbank and was produced by Dan Cleland and Daisy Allsop for Zeitgeist Films. SNK provided all the Audio Post including ADR, mix and sound design, engineered in-house by Seb Juviler.
Naturally we're very pleased that Orthodox will be making it's World Premier in October at the NFT2 on London's South Bank, having been shortlisted for the London Film Festival 2012. It's nice to know that all the hard work is paying off!
We'll keep you posted with any news.
UPDATE : MARCH 2013
Orthodox has gone into production as a full-length feature! More info here and here.
We're delighted that both the Canon 'Legria' idents for Drum and Royal Navy 'Predator' TV ad for WCRS have been picked up for relicense in the last month.
We're especially pleased about these two as they both have some of our best original music composition on there - so it's nice to know they're being put to good use!! Both were re-voiced at SNK Studios in the last month and are now on TV.
We had a great time spotting all the sound design for this awesome two minute stop motion production from Thieves Kitchen, for their new corporate client Vocality.
They supply satellite communication hardware for uses in hostile and challenging environments, clearly a technical product thats made much more accessible and friendly through the use of such creative production.
Some foley recording, dozens of library effects and the odd silly voice were all combined to bring the picture to life and give it bags of character. We then recorded Ray Brooks aka. Mr Benn to narrate the whole spot and add his unique, warm, reassuring tones!
SNK Studios are overjoyed to have won 'Best use of sound design in a Branding or Title Sequence' at the inaugural Music and Sound awards ceremony last week.

The award now stands in pride of place in the lobby area at our Tottenham Court Road studios, so next time you're in ask Seb to see it, he may even let you touch it ;)

Working with Golden Joystick Award winners Jagex Games Studio we had lots of fun creating the music and sound design for two teaser films for the forthcoming Transformers Universe game.
Clicking, clunking and humming sounds along with originally created synth and drone effects were required to build up a world of weird and wonderful noises. The two teasers were watched more than 100,000 times in less than a week of going online!
