"SAXON" - An Animated Miniseries

We here at Soundesque LOVE animations.  We love watching them and we love writing music, sound designing and doing voice-overs for them!

One of our most recent projects has been writing the music for the first episode of up-coming animated miniseries, "Saxon."  It follows a teenage dropout named Saxon and their cat Bartholomew as they solve the mysterious death of a local teen.  It's dark, but oh so witty!

Voice-Overs: Some Techniques/Advice (Giant Fox game characters)

Hey all!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Salvador here! Thought I'd kick off the new year with a blog post on voice-overs!

So we at Soundesque were pretty stoked when Giant Fox, Indie game company from Barcelona, Spain, wanted us to provide some voice-overs for their latest video game trailer, Rise of Titans.  (See excerpts of the trailer that I did here)

Prior to studying at the Berklee College of Music, I studied dubbing and voice-overs dubbing at ECAD.  In today's blog post, I thought it would be interesting for me to share what goes into the thought and preparation process of coming up with voices for characters.

The biggest challenge I faced was finding the right voice for each of the characters, giving them enough credibility to fit the visuals, and how to bring something two-dimensional, to life. Here are some of my tips:

I, Oblivious (Trailer and Film) , Director: Faysal Chadimi

A really close friend of ours, who happens to also be an exceptionally talented, young composer Brandon Liew, asked one of our composers, Shirley (aka me, who's currently writing this post), if she could do the music to the trailer for the film that he's been working on called "I, Oblivious" directed by Moroccan born, Boston based Film-maker, Faysal Chadimi.

"I Oblivious is a short film that tells the story about human ignorance of world issues. (Poverty, racism,war...). "Adam" (The main character) is having an internal argument with his subconscious over these world issues. He debates how most humans act like they don't belong to this world: acting selfishly and irresponsibly, when in fact, they are the source of each problem that currently exists."
