Work

Two film's we worked on at Ardmore Sound and Screenscene have upcoming festival screenings:

Frank

Frank has been selected to play as part of the Festival Favorites strand of SXSW. Here's the details. Frank will be on general release in Ireland in May and in North America and beyond this summer.

The Last Days On Mars

The Last Days On Mars plays at JDIFF on Monday, ahead of it's Irish release in April.

Ear Films

Last year I got to work on the sound design for a really interesting project called 'To Sleep, To Dream', which is being made by an innovative UK sound collective called Ear Films. It is a really unique project, based around an ambisonic sound system of 19 discrete speakers. You can find out more about the show and Ear Films on their site. 'To Sleep, To Dream' premiered at the Brighton Festival last year, where it won a Brighton Argus Angel and is moving to Melbourne next month for a run at The Melbourne Recital Centre.

Stuff

Randy Thom

Randy Thom is the Director of Sound Design at Skywalker Sound and is about to be honoured with a career achievement award at this year's MPSE Golden Reel Awards. Check out his amazing credits on IMDB. Here's a lovely interview with him about his career as a sound editor, designer and re-recording mixer. Here's the essay he mentions in the interview about Designing for Sound.

Jad Abumrad

Wired has a nice piece about Radiolab's Jad Abumrad and his home sound setup. His sound design for the show is always really impressive.

Clint Mansell

Here's a great, indepth audio interview with film composer Clint Mansell from Mixcloud.
