I'm excited to announce that Infestation, a short experimental animation by Cable Hardin for which I provided sound design, will screen at the River Film Festival in Padua, Italy on Friday June 10th, 2016. Check out the details from the festival's web site below to see how cool this fest is:
"We show the films... onto our screen that floats on a raft moored in the middle of the Bacchiglione, the river that has always linked the two great medieval cities of Padua and Venice, at the old river port, Porta Portello. A metaphor and a reality of communication, of continuity, of movement, liberty, independence and of life that are the key to, and which embody, the spirit of our festival. The audience sits on the tiers of steps where for six centuries goods were loaded and unloaded at the river port."
As a wise man once said: How cool is that?
One of these days I'll publish a more in-depth account of the sound design process for this short, which involved a lot of fun voiceover work and original field recordings by yours truly.
