The Bark House and 2BruceStudio fun began with a search for local voice talent. A distinctive announcer was essential for the video Marty and Chris McCurry titled “A Product of Human-Nature Transcends the Nature of Human Products”. The video would announce Bark House winning the Architectural Record Product of the Year, the only PLATINUM Cradle to Cradle® Certification, and ten B Corp Best for the World awards. Marisa Blake has a captivating voice, rich in smiles and milk chocolate. Thanks to Marisa, the recording went smoothly, surprising everyone how much fun they could have with an important session. It isn’t often a new client immediately trusts me to edit voice with music, mix, and create the master while they’re slipping out for lunch at a well known Asheville restaurant. They also requested animating the logo and providing visual special effects. Hats off to Marty and Chris of Bark House for taking the right approach to business and becoming a 2BruceStudio favorite post production collaborator.

The CRT was built after a directive by president Barack Obama’s white house. Since 2012, I’ve had the honor of providing post production services for many NOAA videos. The CRT introduction video proved the most challenging, and most fun. I composed and recorded one continuous piece of original music which changes during different scenes, but unites ideas and images throughout the three minute video. 2BruceStudio recorded and edited the announcer, created sound design, and mixed everything together for the final audio. 2BruceStudio provided the final video edits, along with adding b-roll and animations, color grading and all exports for final deliverables.
Music for “Golf” began in the mind of a movie soundtrack aficionado, creative director at Element Advertising, Jack Becker. He heard something relaxed, but driving; friendly, but with a techie edge. After a couple music demos, Bruce Sales finished scoring and mixing music and started the next step – spotting sound effects. Each time a golf club whacked a ball, it required the distinctive sound of a wooden driver, iron driver, putter, or wedge with sand. While wrapping up the “Golf” post production, Bruce discovered a swinging side of Jack. He’s logged many hours, over the years, on the fairway. Sequoia National is one of the most sought after stay & play locations in the Carolinas. With each delightful swing of the club, Jack insisted one must hear a creditable effect. Jack discovered his sound designer would hear it no other way. The extensive sound effects library at 2BruceStudio provided blow-by-blow until the final ball fell, par for the course, in the cup.
