Huawei New Mobile Phone Cinema and TV Ad featuring Dreamworks Kung Fu Panda – Mixed and edited by Steve Belgrave. Mastered by Pete Maher.
Its always great when you get to work on projects such as this, but I had no idea it was going to be so much fun. This one required a full edit and mix of the sound design elements from Dreamworks™ plus the full edit and mix of the musical score. I was also asked to create additional sound design elements where I felt it would benefit the production. It was a huge undertaking as the time allotted to complete was just 72 hours, including reviews! Not that tight deadlines are anything unusual but I’ll admit, I did feel the pressure a little on this one. There were three edits to complete. A 60 second cinema ad mixed in full 5.1 and 7.1 surround, plus 30 and 15 second stereo versions for online use, all needing their own mix. Apart from the great score and original sound design elements, the animated film sequence was just hilarious and kept me laughing and awake, even though, being in Chinese, I couldn’t understand a word. Hats off to Dreamworks™ for that one. Job completed and client super happy.
