We are very happy to announce that we have been chosen to sound design a wonderful short film called ‘Clowning Around’.
Clowning Around is the creation of director Damien Cullen, and as soon as we saw a rough cut we knew we wanted to be involved. It is a tragic comedy, following the lovable clown Bonzo, trying to keep a grip on his clowning career.
Bonzo is mute throughout the film, leaving plenty of room for sound design to add an extra layer of definition to his character. Also the careful balance of emotions that Damien is attempting to weave will need to be partly expressed through the sound design, without it feeling too forced.
As a sound designer it is your roll to support the film’s intent, rather than planting your own on it, so we shall be working closely with Damien to hopefully add a final audio polish to his work.
The film has been funded and marketed online, via a very successful indiegogo campaign and Damien sets an excellent benchmark for a modern way of making and marketing films. Through his website and the indiegogo campaign, Damien has documented the whole filmmaking process and has actually created a very worthwhile resource for would-be filmmakers.Share
