Van Eck Racing – Portrait

Going full speed on a bike in the forest is a thrilling experience. The sounds of the wind rushing by, the wheels racing over different surfaces and the birds on the background. These are some of the sounds we used to sculpt the soundtrack. Van Eck Racing Portrait For this portrait about Jeroen van Eck […]

Wall #4 – Short film This whole film is taking place in the cinema. And there is not one but two films playing. The one you are watching and the one the audience is watching. This gives us as sound designers the opportunity to play with mixed realities. Great fun! The genres of the films are begging us to […]

l’Anima – Short film Memories shape our identity and those memories are often just a picture, a feeling or a smell. We wanted to capture that feeling in the sound design for this film.

On Top of the World – Short film

On Top of the World tells the story of finding the ultimate high. It’s about doing what you love – and in the case of these men that includes doing backflips from a massive crane into the ocean. Our goal is to let the viewer experience the same rush as the athletes are feeling when […]
