This film is one of a series of animations for Mini. They were projected on a huge scale on the sides of buildings, and the sound could be heard through PA systems at viewpoints where the public could interact with the films and choose what played next.[vimeo 39362202]
As the cars were all animated, we had a Mini Cooper recorded with a multiple mic setup as it was put through its paces by a test driver, who performed donuts and skids until the engine blew out. It was from these multitrack recordings that I pieced together all the car movements in the sound edit. In this particular film (Lasers) I created a bunch of laser sounds using sound effects combined with synth blasts made on a Novation Supernova 2, along with a bunch of rock and explosion sfx from the sound library.
