Testimonial for ‘Mitosos’ soundtrack

‘mitosos’ was a 2D animation created in very laborious way using a basic software with the aim of developing an intentionally “clunky” aesthetic. It was the first time i went ahead and employed professionals to create a soundtrack and i wasn’t really sure what to expect.

Saul met me to discuss my intention for the work and then he went away to work on the soundtrack with Gillian. Apparently Gillian created her own story when watching the little animated ‘mitos’ and incorporated
these imaginings with my own account that she received from Saul. However the process evolved i was thrilled with the results and felt that they added greatly to the quirky, humorous aesthetic i was trying to create visually.

Testimonial for ‘Dolly’ soundtrack

‘dolly’ was a 3D animation combined with digital videomicrograph footage of my actual cells. After my first experience with the ‘mitosos’ soundtrack created by Saul & Gillian I knew how a sensitive and complimentary soundtrack could enhance and lift my visuals so i was more than ready to employ them again for ‘dolly’. Saul followed the same process as before and had a conversation with me about the background ideas of the work. Then Gillian ran with my concepts and her own creative responses to put together another very unique and exciting soundtrack for ‘dolly’.

Testimonial for ‘Host’ soundtrack

Probably the soundscape for HOST was the most difficult of the three to mould with my vision for the work. I used real footage from a fast-capture camera of bees landing on my hand to feed and it was an intensely personal artwork. We went through the same working process as before but the original soundscape was not quite in keeping with my vision for the work. I have always found that Saul & Gillian are really flexible & ready to go the extra mile to satisfy a client. Gillian redeveloped the original soundscape and then, from my perspective, it was a perfect match.

Testimonial for www.trishadams.tv

I finally got around to the seemingly insurmountable job of getting my own website. Naturally I turned to Saul, who approached this task with enthusiasm and expertise. We met several times to discuss Saul’s developing designs and to ensure that they were compatible with my personal requirements. It was most helpful that Saul was able to suggest user-friendly technologies that would ensure that the site was both a source of information and a vehicle for publicity. I am able to trust in Saul’s judgment in the area of updating my site and I appreciate his committment to helping me to have the best on-going profile and also keeping everything updated. the site proved its’ value immediately when I was meeting gallery directors overseas and I was able to have everything at my disposal at one URL - www.trishadams.tv
