Nashville (June 22, 2004)–JamSync recently completed the sound design, audio post and ADR work for director Read Ridley’s latest feature, Dodge City, winner of The Indie Southern Spirit Award at the 2004 Memphis Black Writers Conference & Southern Film Festival.
“Dodge City: a Spaghetti Western combines the Old West’s mores with the inner-city’s contempory setting,” said director Ridley. “The sound design was a critical element in making the film flow and giving it a character of its own. The last scene is a shoot-em-up and is several minutes of complete sound design with little dialog. I selected JamSync for my audio work because I had heard some of K.K. Proffitt’s previous sound design work and knew that Proffitt and JamSync would deliver the quality that I was after.”
“Dodge City was one of the most challenging and enjoyable projects I ever did,” said Proffitt. “Read gave me the freedom to be creative with the sounds. It was a lot more than just spotting sound effects to picture. We created signature sounds for each of the main characters and did layer upon layer to make them all unique. Read Ridley wanted the audio to reflect the chaos of the hood when the story motivated it so we were able to keep the continuity while accenting the emotional content of the movie.”
