Lately I’ve produced so many of Eamonn Lee’s audio descriptions that I’ve clean forgotten to post about them! All of them have been recorded at DSI, read and for the most part written by Eamonn himself.  As well as the theatrical version, which is heard solo through headphones over the top of the cinema systems sound, I have also been producing mixes for DVD and Blu-Ray. We hope the blind community have enjoyed our audio descriptions!

Recent projects include (in reverse order – ish):

SWUNG -steamy

THE HARD STOP – all about the riots that started here in our home town of Tottenham

IONA – a bleak tale set on the Scottish island

REMAINDER – bizarre Memento-like madness

SUFFRAGETTE – a big release, voiced by Lauren Roche

THOMAS QUICK – chilling true crime

… And more that don’t come to mind right now.  Phew! Nice and busy.  Looking forward to the next one 😊

 

Last summer I was commissioned by Idle Productions to provide audio production, post production and original music for the Alpro Barista Challenge, which took place at the World of Coffee expo in Gothenberg.

Although the event was enjoyable the real thrill came from working with trumpet player Russel Bennett  and saxophonist Rob Milne to create the theme music! Check it out

The latest of our audio description recordings for post house IBF this month, both written and performed by Eamonn Lee, were:

DSI have teamed up with Dan Warburton to score Legitimate films’ next release, Caveman calling. You can see some of the hilarious music making productivity here on the DSI VLOG2 by Trinity Project.

Upon completion of the music, DSI will also be providing the final mix for this and hopefully future Legitimate films releases.

This short film by director Amancay Tapia was made in 2011 for a shorts competition. Noise was again a big issue here. The background music is from my band Alta Cruz.

In 2010 I worked on this very enjoyable project, providing foley, sound design and final mix for director Gabriela Dworecki’s short film The Awakening. This character piece described a man’s transformation from respectable business man to sinister lady of the night. The film was released at the Raindance festival that year.

Hichestan is a feature length, dark tale about an Iranian played by Parviz Ghodsi, who brings his family to London illegally in search of better life, with terrible consequences.

DSI audio post provided all dialogue editing, sound design and mixing. Music was created by Chris Corcoran.

I have now submitted the final mix and the production team are negotiating distribution. The journey has been a long one, with many obstacles to overcome. The dialogue edit alone required several months to clear up all the noise issues. Thanks to the film’s editor Abo Talooni, and let’s not forget the wizardry of iZotope RX2 (phew).

In 2009 I had the  pleasure of sinking my adamantium claws into clearvision’s Marvel DVD releases. I performed audio conforms for the German, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian audio streams for titles including The X-men, Spiderman, The Original Spiderman and Spider-woman.
