At The East Wing we have a great deal of experience in the world of Sound design, mastering all levels from using the huge Sound effects collection we keep in house, to manipulating audio samples, synthesizing sounds or recording / manipulating original sound effects bespoke to your project.
This can be to accompany on screen action that without sound would lose all of its impact, or where the location sound needs something extra for a dramatic feel. Sound design can equally be used without picture, for example in radio to enrich the language and feeling of an advert.
To give you an idea of what can be achieved, below we feature a couple of past projects we have completed…
The term Sound designer has been used in film going back as far as 1972, Francis Ford Copolla gave this title to Walter Murch for his famous work on 'Apocalypse now.' At the time though, the sound designer was not just responsible for building sound beds, soundscapes and spot effects, their role also included the responsibilities for dialogue, sound re recording and of the final mix. Nowadays, the sound designers job is separate from the dialogue editing and dubbing mixers roles.
