Directed by James Arden of ‘The Trash Factory’, this delicate film was a joy to work on and we’re thrilled with the end result.
Capturing the right tone was crucial in the success of the soundtrack to this film. Building a heartfelt and poignant tone but leaving the viewer feeling a glimpse of optimism. The track is built of few parts; a softly played grand piano with purposefully audible sounds of the keys clicking, the felt pads touching the strings and pedal movement to give a sense of quiet and proximity to the instrument. The strings are lightly tremolo-ing to give a sense of intrigue to the film’s ‘reveal’ and also setting a bed of music to ground the soundtrack.
Sound design was kept very diegetic and subtle. Soft sounds of boxes moving, socks padding along carpeted floors and the rustle of clothes. Little diegetic audio was recorded on location so almost all sounds (bar the dialogue) were recreated in our studio.
