SOUND DESIGN FOR STORYTELLING
In collaboration with filmmakers, we create soundtracks that do more than simply 'sound good' – we explore beyond images to enhance emotions in storytelling. We believe that sound is a great tool to emphasize the message of your film. Where picture brings information, sound brings feeling and energy. Sound is the best kept secret of filmmaking, waiting for you to harness its power and make your film better.
We are a full-service sound-production studio in the heart of Amsterdam. We have worked on numerous films and television series. Among our clients are Dutch production companies, broadcasters, and streamers like Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime.
