SNK sculpt 5.1 immersive sound design for 360 degree Ford Le Mans experience!
Working alongside animation wizards, Burrows we looked after all aspects of audio for an epic 360 degree brand film experience- the centre piece for the Ford stand at LeMans 24 Hours race last month. The piece utilised the revolutionary Igloo dome technology and proved a huge hit with over 30,000 people watching on-site and over 100,000 views across Facebook and YouTube.
SNK took care of the music search & negotiation, creative sound design and 5.1 surround sound mixing as well as the on-site installation testing whilst Essex based Burrows sculpted the stunning CGI sequences and shot the 360 degree live action sections featuring Ken Block and Andreas Bakkerud. It was the first project we had worked on together and everyone involved was overjoyed with the final piece.
Enjoy the film here. (Although the stereo mix and 2D picture really doesn’t do it justice, viewing it on your smart phone and through Google Cardboard does give you a more immersive experience.)
For anyone who doesn't know about Women in Film and TV, it is an incredible organisation here in the UK for women working in creative media, and is also part of an international network of over 10,000 women worldwide.
It holds monthly networking evenings, mentoring programmes, lobbies for womens interests as well as a whole host of other events.
I recently attended the latest Women in Film and TV networking evening. It's held once a month in the Hippodrome and is open to all members to come along and meet fellow women in the industry. The organisers encourage everyone to bring along business cards and make at least 5 new contacts by the end of the night. The whole event is an incredibly welcoming, inclusive environment. Even if you've come alone you are encouraged to walk up to any group of people and introduce yourself. At the beginning it is slightly terrifying - reminiscent of being a kid in the playground trying to make friends - but everyone welcomes all new people with a friendly 'hello'.
The networking events are also open to non-members to try once, to see if it's for them - I can't recommend it enough. Coming from the industry in Ireland to London where no one really knows who I am, it's a great way to get my name and the SNK brand out there and show people where to find us when they need excellent audio work done.
Each week we're selecting one of the lovely creative bods in the company to recommend a Spotify playlist for people who want to broaden their listening experiences. This week it's Ben's turn...
Ben Siegal - Engineer says:
There isn't really much of a theme to this playlist... It's just a collection of tracks and artists that I've been listening to a lot recently. Everything from Drum & Bass to Johnny Cash. Hit shuffle and enjoy!
We're delighted to have been creating all the audio for the colossal European-wide Euros 2016 Betfair campaign that kicked off last weekend. That includes multiple TV ads in 7 languages all with offer variations, original sound design, Music, VO and final mix delivery. Over the past month we've been handling everything from radio and script clearance to voice casting and music licensing. A massive shout goes out to our very own, legendary Chris Whiteside for handling most of the engineering at this end, and Senior Audio Producer Sam Dillon for his octopus-like handling of the account.
We're delighted to be working directly with the brand in this case, taking care of such a significant part of the production process on this large account.
Robin Marks, Head of TV & Radio Production for Paddy Power Betfair said:’The guys at SNK really went the extra mile on this project, with so many versions, offers and languages it was a huge task to manage. Their audio producer, Sam is on call around the clock and just gets things sorted, exactly what you need when dealing with a huge campaign like this. From arranging voices and music to the final mixing, done by the wonderful Chris, their team did a stellar job, as ever. I couldn't recommend SNK highly enough'
Each week we're selecting one of the lovely creative bods in the company to recommend a Spotify playlist for people who want to broaden their listening experiences. This week it's Seb's turn...
Seb Juviler - Co-Owner says:
Some clever soul has compiled a playlist of music that features in Adam Curtis documentaries... The man's a legend and his documentaries are astounding - and he always choses brilliant music. With 83 tracks ranging from Marlene Dietrich to Nine Inch Nails, and a generous smattering of Brian Eno, theres just about something for everyone!

Sam Dillon - Senior Audio Producer says:
I'm a massive fan of American singer-songwriter Bon Iver (Justin Vernon) and I’m always on the lookout for other artists with similar original approaches to acoustic and vocal phrasing. So, here’s a selection of tracks I’ve been listening to by artists inspired by his work… falsetto and all. Enjoy!

New facilities include a brand new Tracklay Suite and a new C24 desk in studio 5
We're always looking to improve the studios here on Tottenham Court Road - just in the past month we've installed a brand new Avid C|24 mixing console in Studio 5, invested in yet more world class microphones and built a brand new Tracklay Suite, complete with four ProTools rigs!!
The new suite is ideal for session-prep, sound design and all manner of unattended work, enabling us to fully commit to even larger projects and continue to deliver an unparalleled, creative service with a big smile.
In addition, we understand client's needs to access ongoing or historic projects for re-versioning and last minute changes, and with full access to all the data in the building, the newly built Tracklay Suite allows us to turn those urgent requests around - even faster than before.
