Our mission is simple: to deliver outstanding, forward-looking and uncompromising scores for trailers, promos, TV spots and campaigns, working with the best musicians and production talent available. No short-cuts, no padding, no excuses.
We live, eat and breathe trailers, games and dramatic music, and pride ourselves in staying ahead of stylistic shifts and trends in dramatic audio. Drawing on production talent embedded in electronic and dance music, through to amazing orchestral partners like the Budapest Symphony Orchestra, we produce highly responsive trailer tracks that anticipate the ever-changing landscape of dramatic production music, and maintain the very highest standards of composition, musicianship and cutting-edge production. Tracks custom-built to enrich, enhance, illuminate and contextualize awesome visual content.
We are located in Manchester, which since the birth of Media City has become the UK’s new creative powerhouse, and is one of the fastest growing cities in Britain. OK, so it’s not quite LA, but who needs palm trees when you can have grey skies and drizzle?!
