Post Production Showcase: Envy

We’re pleased to reveal that Envy is among the six post-production houses that have made the final list for the first ever Audio Media Post Production Showcase – a feature highlighting the varying work across the field of audio post-production for feature films, shorts, TV, and advertising.

Envy’s pitch comprised ‘Land Rover UK – Bear Grylls Can and Will reach the summit’, one in a series of films for Land Rover. All the sound design was created and mixed in Pro Tools in one day. The film also went to cinema with a Dolby 5.1 mix.

“As Bear describes his life threatening experience on Everest we hear the cityscape from his point of view around him,” says Ian ‘Arge’ Hargest, senior sound designer and dubbing mixer, Envy. “The sound brief was to make Bear feel like he was somewhat disconnected from these sounds, as if his mind is on Everest not on the street. Bursts of city noise are occasionally heard as if to enhance the disconcerting feeling of his story. As the story becomes more optimistic towards the end, so do the sounds of the city.”

Arge’s recent projects include an ongoing series of films for The Times, channel branding for ITV, and commercials for Miller, Google, and Honda.
