I am Ashurbanipal

Sound Design, Audio Post, Mix 
King Ashurbanipal of Assyria (r. 669–c. 631 BC) was the most powerful man on earth. He described himself in inscriptions as ‘king of the world’, and his reign from the city of Nineveh (now in northern Iraq) marked the high point of the Assyrian empire, which stretched from the shores of the eastern Mediterranean to the mountains of western Iran.

Bringing History to Life: A Soundscape Through Time

This project utilises sound design to transport viewers back in time. The soundscape complements the historic imagery, featuring various scenes from battles with lions to the court of the great king himself.

  • Vivid Atmospheres:  sound design elements breathe life into the historical images, creating a sense of presence in each location and era.
  • Subtle Enhancement: Voiceover narration remains clear and at the forefront of the mix. However, subtle effects processing is applied to the final line, adding a touch of otherworldly intrigue and emphasizing its importance.
