Folks, we HOBOs like to be creative. That’s just a fact, and music is no exception. HOBO composes the freshest music for commercials, for TV shows, for films, and for you! Because of the industry’s wide range of musical demands, we’re versatile in many musical styles and genres. Take a listen, won’t you?
I’m one of those people whose understanding of The Walking Dead is pretty much limited to, “Hey, that guy from Love, Actually is doing an American accent!” But his character did promise to love Keira Knightley until she’s a dried up dead body, so in that sense I guess there’s a thematic overlap in his work.
In any case, I keep up with entertainment news enough to know that things got real last night in the season three finale, and our very own Stephen Davies was on the edge of his seat! Specifically, this seat. This seat right here, in this commercial!
Check it out, in all its Hobo-filled glory:
When I was contacted by DCode Films (Producer Giovanni Mancini and Director Moe Charif), to help with the sound design for a Teaser-Trailer based on the Video Game, DEUS EX HUMAN REVOLUTION, I saw a great opportunity to implement everything that I’ve learned during the past year at HOBO AUDIO. In a couple of days I had to recreate the teaser atmosphere, bring in new SFX, edit the dialogue and mix. The teaser has now reached over 300K views on YouTube and DCode Films is currently working on a short film version!
Check out the trailer!
2013 started off on the right foot! Well, maybe the left, but at least it’s a good step. At the very beginning of the year we were lucky enough to get the opportunity to work* on a wonderful film by Jason DaSilva called “When I Walk”. The film premieres at the Sundance Film Festival** [IN THREE DAYS] amongst a lineup of great potential. This verité style documentary follows the film maker, as he examines what it is like to be diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and then overcome the challenges it presents. It is a truthful and honest approach at how being handed an unlucky hand of cards doesn’t mean you have to be chained down because of them. But it is more than just a film about MS. It is a film about support. Adaptation. Friendship. Life.
Just yesterday the film was featured on the New York Times website — http://nyti.ms/SQLpGU
Check out the trailer and make sure to keep an eye out for it in a theater near you. Sundance is only just the start for such a great film.
* Dialogue editing by Hobo Audio, in collaboration with Supervising Sound Editor & Re-Recording Mixer, Tom Paul at Gigantic Post.
**If you are attending Sundance this year, here are the screening times for “When I Walk”. It is “Wait List Only” at the moment, but it’s well worth it.
Bored at work? Not me, never the less I have provided myself with hours of mindless entertainment making Google Translate beatbox! Want to hear my sick nasty track!?
