  • n a sense, I think a movie is really a little like a question and when you make it, that's when you get the answer.
    Francis Ford Coppola
  • When a sound can replace an image, cut the image. The ear goes more toward the within, the eye toward the outer.

        Our Operation

        how we conduct our business

        The difference between genius and stupidity is genius knows it's limits.

        Albert Einstein

        Our Philosophy

        of film soundtracks
        • Sound is the emotion carrier
          Watch a film with the sound off and you will quickly realise the impact of sound. Without sound you are not involved, images alone do not tell the story. With sound you are connected to the emotional heartbeat and narrative drive of a film.
        • Story is King
          Soundtracks serve the story they are not an end in themselves. Our soundtracks sympathetically enhance the narrative drive and character arc of a film.
        • Delicate Detail
          The smallest and delicate details enhance the surface layer of a soundtrack and give it authenticity and dimension.
        • Harmony of all sound elements
          A mix is not a contest between dialogue, music and effects but a well designed whole. Simple devices like tuning a music cue to an engine tone can make both play in harmony and not fight for attention.
