The Chris Lennertz score for the animated feature “Hop” has been mixed by Jeff Vaughn in Record One/Ocean Way’s renowned Studio A. The room has a lustrous past, home to hits by countless producers, including Quincy Jones and Dr. Dre.
Composer Chris Lennertz, who also scored “Cats & Dogs,” “Meet the Spartans,” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks,” commented on his sessions, “Mixing at Record One was a dream. The gear and crew were fantastic and helped me bring my music to life. What a great room!”
Blending state-of-the-art animation
with live action, the Universal Pictures animated feature tells the story of E.B. (Russell Brand), the teenage son of the Easter Bunny who, on the eve of taking over the family business, leaves home for Hollywood to pursue his dream of becoming a drummer, and is hit by Fred O’Hare (James Marsden), an out of work slacker who was driving home. Feigning injury, E.B. manipulates Fred to take him in as he recovers. As Fred struggles with the world’s worst house guest, both will learn what it takes to finally grow up, as Fred is pressed to partner with E.B. to save Easter.
“Hop” release date is April 1 by Universal Pictures.
