Here at The Forge Audio, we love sports. When Venture Communications asked us to craft a radio spot to sound just like a sportscast, it was a request we felt we had already done a healthy amount of research for! Aggressive music, big sound design moments (these ones designed to sound like cars), and Kate Beirness voicing made for a fun day in the studio, and a spot we are very proud of… give it a listen!… Read More
“Burning All the Past Away”
is a very cool stop action animation web series pilot created by our friend Doug Cook for the Telus Storyhive competition.
It’s not often we get the chance to craft sound design that is central to a storyline, and is intended to emotionally support a project in place of music. Through raging storms, burning forests, and bat filled caves, we journey with “Bandages” (our protagonist) as he attempts to escape “The Judge”. Guided by a spectacular voice performance by Piotr Michael of Sheri-D Wilson’s poem, this will definitely take you to another world! Completed in both 5.1 Surround and in Stereo, we a very proud of how this web series pilot turned out.
We are excited to announce that 9 different projects we helped produce audio for last year have been nominated for Rosie’s at this year’s Alberta Media Production Industries Association (AMPIA) Awards Show.
Included in the bunch are 3 nominations for Best Overall Sound, 1 for Best Original Musical Score, 1 for Best Narrator (Ian Tyson), and 9 projects nominated in a variety of categories from Film to Television to Digital. 14 nominations in total that we are proud to have been a part of the post production teams on.
“Congratulations” to our production partners from each of these nominations…well done!… Read More
