Michael Barrett, senior audio engineer and sound designer at Burst, and Doug Dimon, senior flame artist and designer at Creative Bubble, teamed up to bring a new Showtime logo to life. The 10-second logo, designed and art-directed by Showtime’s Damian Mager, was inspired by the concept of long exposures to capture moving lights on film.
Barrett provided music, sound design and mixes for the logo. Marcelo Gandola, owner of Burst and Senior Engineer, used this project as an opportunity to upgrade the main Room A to full 5.1 surround capabilities. Other studio equipment used for the logo ID includes Protools HD|3 software and Control 24 Console.
“For the surround mix, a lot of the efx are being utilized in the rear speakers as well as full 360-degree pannings,” says Barrett. “When looking at the graphics Doug and Damien came up with, I wanted the music and sound design to pop off of the screen and have a lot of dimension. The overall vibe is intense and gritty with an underlying electronic beat to it.”
Final video for the Showtime logo reveal was delivered in standard and hi-def, as well as a film version that will be used for all theatrical and festival releases of Showtime films; audio was delivered in stereo and 5.1 Surround.
