We love making these promos for HBO.
It's worth noting that in each and every case the ((SOUND)) is completly redone by us from scratch. (Have a listen to this mix containing only our sound design : https://vimeo.com/68841457) After we either edit or compose a music track to suit, we in fact start with silence and work from there.The reason for this is that invariably the clips used all contain their own music which we can't remove. We therefore wipe the audio and start afresh. We build the SOUNDSCAPE from the back of the mix, moving forward as we go, so we start with general atmospheres and move our way through the mix working on details layer by layer. In the final mix, we add the music back in and program the mix so that these two major sonic elements sit well together.
We'd like to say a big thank you to our friends and collegues Hasan Cakir & Richard Verdult for each and every time creating these wonderful visuals, and making us look good in the process. Respect guys.
