Sound Design

Purposefully Designed Sound for Video

The stuff that dreams are made of

Did you hear that? Your audience will
The tinkling of wind chimes as they blow gently in the breeze, the distant echo of an ice cream van that reminds you of those hazy summer days, that unforgettable rising bassline as Jaws skulks through the water, about to attack his first victim…

Sound design in film is an incredibly important facet of the overall production. It gets under your audience’s skin and evokes a memory, a time and place, an emotion. It makes your video production a more sensory experience, and more likely to stick in your viewer’s mind.

Spot the difference!

With Sound Design

In through the ears and under the skin

Much like smells, sounds transport us back to the last time we heard something similar. Our brains are very effective in detecting repetitive sounds; associating them with the memory we formed when we first heard it. Just think about that last song you got stuck in your head…Using effective sound design or foley artistry in your video production not only ensures a professional touch, but is a proven technique to make sure your audience remembers you.

An original score

With a bespoke sound track penned by one of our talented composers, Dragonfly can give your video that unique cinematic edge. We’ll make the hairs on the back of their necks stand to attention, lull them into a sense of security, get that catchy tune stuck in their head and make your audience remember watching your video.

By writing music and creating a soundtrack specifically designed for your video we can take careful control of the emotion and atmosphere we want to portray from second to second. This type of power makes it very easy to tell your story with real feeling, and make your video engaging and effective.

Audio correction

It’s not all dramatic scores and standing ovations, Audio corrections can make a crackly interview clear as a bell, cut out that pigeon that just wouldn’t stop cooing and otherwise spruce up the sound in your video. Using effective sound design or foley artistry in your video production not only ensures a professional touch, but is a proven technique to make sure your audience remembers you.

Sound Effects & Foley Artistry

Let’s make some noise! It looks a bit silly when you watch someone dropping melons on the floor, or blowing into a cardboard tube, but the sounds that a foley artist can create will leave you speechless! A bespoke effect for your video could be the defining sound that sticks in everyone’s mind and has them twisting their tonsils off trying to imitate.

Our sound effect team’s genius approach to making noise will stun and excite you and your audience. We’ll punctuate your live action with realistic SFX and create otherworldly soundscapes to fully realise your imaginative animation.
