Factory’s Short Film Showcase

Last night sound design studio, Factory, hosted their 6th Short Film Showcase. An evening devoted to the craft of sound within short film, we were delighted to watch some wonderful short films, trailers and music promos, with some of the industry’s most compelling established and up and coming directors.

The evening ended with a screening of Born A Believer by Darius Norowzian, which we produced an original track for. We had a wonderful evening and really enjoyed seeing it on the big screen!

The films showing were…

Bike Life, directed by Dan Emmerson, a film which focuses on a crew of passionate, mischievous motor athletes looking to break out of their dreary locale and into a global audience via social media.

You Are Awake, directed by Pedro Martin-Calero, an eerie tale of a mysterious phenomenon in which a village community start to faint and fall asleep without any reason.

Upstairs, directed by Owynne Dawkins, is a binaural sound short that explores storytelling through the use of a dual audio and visual narrative.

Big Dog, directed by Jamie & Jamie, takes a stripped-back approach to a well trodden horror trope, which took the prize for best cinematography at the BFI/Film London in 2015.

There were two powerful trailers on show, in the shape of Daniel Mulloy‘s Home, and Rhys Chapman‘s WONDERKID.

The night also saw two music promos – Khruangbin‘s Two Fish and an Elephant gets an epic short film directed by Scott Dungate, and director George Belfield’s Kevin Spacey lead performance for Tom Odell‘s Here I Am.

And last but not least…

Born A Believer, from director Darius Norowzian, shows the insight of a charity in South London which rehabilitates ex-offenders and disaffected youths. We’re very honoured to have scored this powerful doc by the brilliant Darius. The original track ‘Born A Believer’ was composed for the film by Jonathan Goldstein and David William Hearn, with lyrics and vocals from UK rapper, Essa.
