The magic of sound design goes beyond layering sounds into scenes to boost realism, tension, humor, excitement or drama. Indeed, the art is in creating the perfect balance of authentic sounds that never pulls the viewer out of a scene. Bad Animals® sound design pros have been working within those artistic guidelines for years with credits including award-winning films, television shows and radio ads as well as a host of interactive titles.

Music has the ability to push the emotion of a scene in a hundred hidden ways, making the viewer laugh, cry or tense up with a subtle instrumental tweak. Bad Animals® composer Tom McGurk relishes the challenge and has added his unique original music beds to a host of projects that includes feature films, television programs, video games and advertising spots.

Creating a soundscape that immerses an audience without becoming obvious is one of the more challenging jobs any sound professional will ever face. After all, every piece of dialog, sound effect and music must be heard clearly while conveying an emotional message. It’s a talent the Bad Animals® staff has been perfecting since stereo gave way to 5.1 and continues to learn about as more channels are added to the sound field.

Foley artists and recordists are charged with adding realism to a scene with carefully crafted sounds, from door slams to footsteps to glass breaks. The art form provides viewers with aural touchstones, no matter if the intent is to laugh, cry or cringe. Bad Animals® includes Foley artists and recordists on its staff to insure that every step, crash or slam is true.

While the right technology is a must — and Bad Animals® is well-stocked with the best pieces — the magic of ADR happens when the talent and the engineer create an inspired, clear and dynamic track that seamlessly fits into the original scene. From features to television, the engineers at Bad Animals have cleaned, matched and delivered additional dialog tracks for projects whether the talent is in-house or at a remote location.

Perhaps the medium is the message, yet the message is much easier to understand when delivered by a professional who can convey authority, passion, whimsy or a combination of all. Bad Animals® can tap Seattle’s best voices to insure that any message — from radio spots to interactive voice overs to corporate video narration — is heard and understood.
