Equal parts magical fantasy and undead horror, "Elixir" is a short film by director Justin Staggs. Junior Birdman Audio provided Foley, sound edit and mix. Picture lock arrived at the studio completely silent, with no audio recorded on location whatsoever. Every sound you hear in the movie-- which you can view in its entirety at the link below-- was created and/ or cut in by yours truly and composer David Gerald Sutton. Voice talent Molly Ryman provided ADR performance for the protagonist’s vocalizations throughout the piece. Staggs brought in a variety of SFX to get me going, and I ransacked my library for more. But many elements-- like the blood drops, the woodsy footsteps and the dangling necklace-- are custom cues created just for this production.
This is nuts. I didn't even know you could do this.
