I wrote some music and did the sound design and mix for a couple of films for Nick Junior recently, and having just filled up a skiff with modular synth stuff I tried to jam as much analogue synth noise into the music as possible. Here’s my synth setup for any geeks who care:
Anyone who knows me personally knows I have a bit of a synth addiction… some like their cars, well… synths are much better and they don’t depreciate.
I should cut to the chase, this film is written and directed by the most awesome Kim Majkut and Akin Akinsiku at Nickelodeon UK, and the lovely animation is by Pierre+Bertrand from Not To Scale. It’s a beauty so have a look:
I wrote the music and edited and mixed the sound effects too for this gorgeous animation directed by Claire Norowzian and Jonny Mazur. It was one of three animations created by Nandita Jain for Nick Junior to form part of their environment awareness campaign.
I love the texture of this film, I think the animator used lots of textiles in it… anyway for my part I tried to pitch lots of the sound effects to be harmonious with my music – see if you can hear the tuneful squawking just before the monkeys in the trees!
