Recording Sound: "You Always Have A Choice" (Short Film)

A couple of weeks back, local upcoming director/producer Steve M. Linez gave us a shout and asked if we would be willing to come on location and give him a hand recording sound for his in-development short film "You Always Have A Choice"... After reading the script, Mike agreed to head over and help out for the day (well originally it was suppose to be half day, but he said he was having so much fun, he stayed for the entire 12 hour shoot)

Many snaps were taken on the day and as such, we wanted to share these with you... There will be another 2/3 shoots over the coming months, after which we have agreed to add an atmospheric film score for the project; we will be sure to update this post for the "Sound" related stuff and create a new "Music" one for, yep, you guessed it; the music related stuff..

Producing Music: ARK.S (Cinematic Hip Hop)

This is a really interesting project which we are crazy excited about! Hiphop artist ARK.S and Mike have been mates for years with key conversations surrounding not just music, but film too! Alongside his music, ARK.S is an avid moviegoer and lover of film scores in general which pretty much laid the foundation of a project taking off!. finally after a few "bro, are we ever gonna actually do this?" (The photo to the left was that moment to by precise) chats, we have begun producing what I can only describe as "Cinematic Hip Hop" together.

Mike has currently written two tracks for ARK.S and is in the process of composing more! This post is going to grow as time goes on but for the meantime, Its safe to announce that Aurora Eclipse Productions in association with 9E Productions will be looking to release a Single to all major digital stores during September 2017 with an EP release to follow.

Composing Music: Tangitise (Identity/Branding)

Our friend and colleague Steve Hope-Wynne over at Tangitise Ltd approached us with a brief to compose a short music score complimenting the branding for his company branding and voice over introduction. 

After reviewing the footage, Mike decided to take a modern-meets-elegant approach and employed the use of synthesisers, flutes, strings, horns, pianos and light percussion to complete the piece.
