Hollywood, CA (September 18, 2008)–SonicPool co-founders John Frost and Patrick Bird announced the completion of the mix for a new theatrical trailer promoting the upcoming film Smother. SonicPool also provided sound design and the final mix for the film Lonely Street.
The theatrical trailer promoting Smother is playing in theatres now, with the film opening during late September. SonicPool worked with client Karl Hirsch, the producer of the trailer, and his company Aglet Post. Said Hirsch, “We wanted the sound mix for the Smother trailer to match the quality of the feature and its cast as best as possible, and wanted the trailer to have a ‘studio-picture’ sound. Unfortunately, we did not have a ‘studio-picture’ budget. SonicPool was a perfect fit; the mix was exceptional, they worked with our budget and schedule, and John Frost’s additional creative input helped make the trailer work much better than I thought possible. Both myself and our clients were quite pleased with the final mix, and I have since become a loyal client to SonicPool.”
Smother, from Variance Films, stars Diane Keaton and Dax Shepard, and was directed by Vince Di Meglio.
SonicPool also provided the sound design and mix for Lonely Street, a comedy/mystery/thriller that stars Jay Mohr, Robert Patrick, Joe Mantegna, Nikki Cox and Paul Rodriguez. The film tells the story of a private detective who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a tabloid reporter, after being hired to snoop on him by a mysterious celebrity. The clients for this project were Patrick Newall, Chris Brinker, and Coni Fry of Lonely Street Productions. Said Newall, “A big thank you to John Frost and the SonicPool gang. Their team played an integral part in the making of this film, and Lonely Street is better because of your talents!”
