SANTA MONICA, Calif. — June 27, 2007 – State-of-the-art boutique sound studio Shoreline Studios today announced it is working on sound mixing for Sam Hurwitz Productions on a series of podcasts the company is producing that promote the new Disney/Pixar film, “Ratatouille,” due to be released in theaters June 29.
Each podcast showcases a special element of the film, bringing together interviews and movie clips to provide audiences with a behind-the-scenes sneak peek at the film. In mixing sound for each podcast, Shoreline Studios carefully treated each piece of audio individually to ensure its quality and consistency, as part of the entire podcast, and within the “Ratatouille” podcast series.
“The work that comes out of Shoreline Studios is exceptional, as is the service,” said Sam Hurwitz of Sam Hurwitz Productions. “At the end of the day, the quality of the mix is paramount, and I can always count on Shoreline Studios’ sensitivity to the material and ability to deliver the type of sound we want within the time frame we specify. The team uses state-of-the-art equipment to provide an excellent mix in which the audio really flows.”
Interviews featured in the “Ratatouille” podcast series captured the film’s principals and other contributors in a variety of locations. All of these interviews were shot at different places and at different times, so it was essential that Shoreline Studios could mix sound from various interviews and maintain the continuity of each person’s voice throughout.
In the hilarious new animated adventure, a rat named Rémy dreams of becoming a great chef despite his family’s wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the city of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero Auguste Gusteau.
The podcasts mixed by Shoreline Studios include interviews with Academy AwardÂ®-winning Director Brad Bird; commentary by Patton Oswalt on his character Rémy; and Producer Brad Lewis on the character Linguini, the garbage boy and would-be chef who teams up with Rémy in the kitchen of Gusteau’s world-famous restaurant. The podcast series is available for viewing online at www.ratatouille.com.
