Utopic Dystopia

Sound Design & Final Mix

Words by Paul Sumpter, Monday 5 Oct 2015


We've just wrapped full sound design and audio post production for this beautifully shot 10-minute short film, by Swedish director Teodora Berglund.

Utopic Dystopia stylishly explores a surreal world of humans as animals. Our task was to create wonderfully engaging 'animalistic' language for the characters to fill the space that the film not having any dialogue left. This would carry the narrative alongside the music, produced by good friend and affiliate writer here, Beni Giles. Berglund requested the sound world feel a combination of animal sounds, electronics and machinery, and this presented us with the creative freedom to build meaning from otherwise abstract sound.

The film is been presented for Sundance International Film Festival and so is currently unavailable for now (we'll be sure to post when it goes live). Below is a behind the scenes, making of video. Watch this space!
