Original Score & Audio Post

Words by Paul Sumpter, Sunday 26 Jan 2020


We've just wrapped original music score alongside full sound design and mix for this beautiful campaign for Dior SS20, from directors Chris Ranson & Mehdi Lacoste. This is the third project we have delivered for Chris following our work on Hackett and Envision.

Our composition features a custom-built string section, recorded and sampled from an Ebowed (perpetual electronic bow) Chinese Erhu (Chinese one-string violin) that I bought in Malaysia a few years back. This gives the track a longing and nostalgic quality perfect for the dreamlike vintage visual style of the film built loosely on the story of Peter Pan.
