The Journal

No. 32: Sync

In this month’s Journal, we wanted to focus on the wonderful world of music in advertising. We spent time with Soho studio Zelig Sound who took us through a detailed workflow with their piece for Nike. Composer & sound designer Shervin Shaeri visited Spitfire HQ to speak with Animator Russ Etheridge and in addition to asking each other questions for the In Depth episode, they also walk through Animade’s Olympops. Whilst we were in LA earlier this year Homay visited Ronit Kirchman who shared with us a detailed Workflow of a key scene in USA’s hit tv show; The Sinner. Finally, Christian demonstrates how to create library music and Paul shares some insight on how to compose successful commercial music in two brand new Quick Tips!

The labs Notebook


What better way to kick things off, than by asking our community to collaborate with us on our #labscollabs project. We asked Spitfire friend, ESKMO (13 Reasons Why, Billions) to write the base of a composition, which we paired with an animation by London-based 3D artist, Dan Ruiz. Using only LABS Strings and LABS Soft Piano, we asked the community to finish the track.
