Lake Buena Vista, FL (August 2, 2004)–i.d.e.a.s. (Innovation, Design, Entertainment, Art, Storytelling) has been awarded the audio production for Pat Croce’s Pirate Soul museum in Key West, FL. The project will consist of nine different audio environments, including a binaural experience, highlighting the story of the legendary pirate, Blackbeard. The museum is scheduled to open in November.
“We’re always excited to have an opportunity to produce this kind of attraction experience,” said John Lux, vice president and general manager of i.d.e.a.s. “This project will let us do some different things with audio rooms. Our audio team is always psyched to sink their teeth into really creative work, especially when it’s a break from the usual sessions they do everyday.”
The project will consist of original recording in various places throughout the country in order to get authentic sounds. The recording will be done using both a binaural recording head as well as standard audio recording equipment. Once the original recordings take place, weeks of post-production audio work will be done before the nine different environments are completed. Sound design, Foley and voice over recording will all be part of the post production process. Included in the different environments is the exterior courtyard, on the deck of Blackbeard’s ship, Blackbeard audio animatronic as well as the binaural experience in a holding cell.
i.d.e.a.s. will be working on the project for Pennsylvania-based Pat Croce & Company along with Maryland-based Gallagher & Associates and New York-based RomeAntics Productions.
