The announcement was made by John Frost and Patrick Bird, co-founders, SonicPool.

SonicPool‘s latest feature film work includes:

Sound Design, Mix and Offline Picture Edit for Feature Film:

“Killer Movie” stars a number of the hottest, current “up and coming” young stars in Hollywood today, including Kaley Cuoco, star of CBS TV‘s hit series “The Big Bang Theory,” Nestor Carbonell (“Cane,”) Paul Wesley (“The O.C.,”) Al Santos (“CSI,”) Jason London (“Grey‘s Anatomy” and J.C. Chasez (‘N Sync.)

The storyline behind “Killer Movie:” A reality television shoot goes terrifyingly awry when its crew becomes stranded in a remote Northern town. A killer is on the loose, stalking cast and crew, one by one.

Said Fisher, “This is our first time working with SonicPool, and they are very welcoming–this is a very friendly environment, and working with them is a pleasure on all levels. Patrick and John and their team are very hands on, they have highly positive attitudes, while still offering us a boutique approach, which is a good fit for me and for our film. The energy at SonicPool is contagious!”

Mixing of Theatrical Trailer:

“Smother:” For client Aglet Productions, SonicPool is providing the theatrical trailer mix promoting the comedy film “Smother.” That film, which stars Dax Shepard, Liv Tyler and Diane Keaton, was written by Vince Di Meglio and Tim Rasmussen and directed by Di Meglio. The film‘s storyline: What would you do if your mother moved in with you and just wouldn’t leave? When Noah Cooper (Shepard) 29, is fired from his job as a therapist, he thinks his day can’t possibly get worse. When he arrives home, his already full house gets even crazier when his overbearing mother Marilyn (Keaton,) arrives with her five dogs in tow, needing a place to stay. Comedy ensues as Noah learns to deal with the pressures of finding a job, a wife who desperately wants a baby, and, worst of all, a mother who won’t quit smothering!
