A wide variety of events have unfolded in the last few months. It has, so far, been the year of the short film, with Attic hard at work supervising a number of expertly made and interesting shorts.
We have recently completed Christian Krohn’s The Turn, a story about a comedian in the decidedly unfunny world of stand-up comedy and comedy clubs. The lead was expertly played by Tim Bentinck (best know as the voice of BBC Radio’s David Archer) and the short allowed us some room for creative work. The club itself, with its dodgy PA and its crowd full of rowdy regulars shifting on their seats was brought to life through sound. As a side note, it also co-starred James Phelps, one of Harry Potter’s Weasley twins, now very much an up-and-coming actor. Watch a clip of ‘The Turn’ here:
We have also just finished designing and mixing Clowning Around, a wonderful short following alcoholic clown Bonzo that ends with a custard pie showdown. We created shoe squeezes to match Bonzo’s mood, recorded school children chanting in Kent, and played with trolleys in a Waitrose car park to insure the sound design packed a real punch. We hope to show you some clips soon!
In other news, we have finally completed our children’s story app of iPad, Princess Petal and the Trapdoor. It was a huge effort and learning experience but we are hugely impressed with the result and are already scheming new Princess Petal adventures. A big thanks to our illustrator Ami-Lou Sharpe, animator Stevie Green, programmer Danielle Huntrods and narrator Cerrie Burnell for helping us create a brand new story app from scratch. Personally, my favourite character is the little bee….Share
