Spike TV Recognizes â€œRed Dead Redemptionâ€? at Annual Awards
Verbatim Studios mixer Conor Murphy was honored last month as part of the audio team behind Rockstar Gamesâ€™ â€œRed Dead Redemption,â€? winner of Spike TVâ€™s Game of the Year at the 2010 Video Game Awards. The dark, Western-themed game also won three awards for best song, best original score, and best downloadable content.
Murphy engineered and mastered the in-game dialogue and worked with cut-scene dialogue and Foley as well. He was also one of the engineers to record the award-winning game's lead character. The Irish-born engineer has a long relationship with the gaming giant, having worked on titles including â€œGrand Theft Auto IV: Episodes from Liberty City,â€? the just-released â€œRed Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare,â€? and the highly anticipated upcoming release â€œL.A. Noir.â€?
The annual awards were announced December 12th in Los Angeles at a program
hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. The high-profile show stands as one of the video game industryâ€™s premiere events, and is recognized as a major venue for debuting the most anticipated upcoming titles.
Verbatimâ€™s newest full-time mixer, Murphy has also worked on a wide range of projects for the studioâ€™s clients, including agencies and brands such as Ogilvy & Mather, Launch, Time Warner Cable, and Frenchâ€™s.
