Given how often I sound edit and mix the sort of corporate/ industrial material parodied by this video, I thought I knew exactly how to approach this project for Dan Schneidkraut-- a mock promo for "Proxcorp’s groundbreaking despair management solution, Dulzipan." Nope! Turns out Dan wanted something of an unorthodox sensibility-- VO buried somewhat, no real audio accents-- because the piece clearly just plain wasn’t weird enough as it was. This video is one facet of, shall we say, a larger project that threatens to reveal itself eventually. For now, poke around the web site, and be disturbed! Also features the talents of Amanda Day, Ryan Schadalee, and others.

Congrats to everyone involved on both of these films! Looking forward to the fest.
Above: a layer-by-layer presentation of my sound edit, musical composition and mix on the animated holiday card that Caitlin Cadieux and I put together at the end of 2018. This video isolates voiceover (performed by me) + background, sound effects, and music (which I composed), finally playing back all the elements mixed together.
Here’s the complete holiday card if you want to see/ hear it.
