As the book unfolds, we enter into a battlefield with horses, soldiers and their weapons coming to life in an immersive CGI film commissioned by Sotheby’s for its project “First Look”.


Sound design to complement the supplied music track throughout the animated scenes, highlighting tension and hostility found on this rare battleground. The sounds of older, more traditional warfare were required; single fire rifles, heavy cannons, horses, horns, crowds of men shouting out in intense battle. A favourite small detail was the subtle notch filter sweep at 23 seconds. It provides a pleasing rush of frequency changes, helping to build towards the drop impact and resulting calm break at 24 seconds. Onwards from here, the main battle commences and intensifies.
