Hello Friends & Colleagues,
Monkeyland's 21st year is quickly coming to a close which means it's time for our annual look back at some of the highlights and moments that made up our 2014. All of us at Monkeyland are extremely grateful we've been able to spend yet another year pursing our love of sound and expanding our craft while continuing to work with both our loyal longtime clientele and new clients alike.
The year started off fast and furious. Three of our films were headed to the Sundance Film Festival with lot's of mixing still to be done! While Gregg Araki's "White Bird In A Blizzard" had finished mixing in December, we were still mixing "We Are The Giant", our fourth feature doc working with Director Greg Barker, and "Imperial Dreams", all headed to mid January premieres in Park City. Meanwhile, we had just started sound editorial and mixing for 6 episodes of a new ABC mini series "The Assets"
2014’s slate of audio projects proved to be quite an eclectic assortment of mainly feature films, documentaries and television, along with a variety of promos, commercials, trailers and short format projects. On the feature film front, some of the year's highlights included Chris Evan's directorial debut "Before We Go", Anthony Hopkins, Sam Worthington starrer "Kidnapping Freddie Heineken", Adam Carolla's directorial debut Comedy "Road Hard", Indie Comedy/Drama "The Young Kieslowski"and Family Adventure sequel "The Adventures of Mickey Matson: Pirates Code". Our sound team also completed full editorial, design and mixing on Drama "A Sort of Homecoming", Period Drama "Victor", Steven Segal Action Crime Drama "The Mercenary: Absolution", Crime Thriller "7 Minutes", Spanish language Drama "Las Horas Contigo", Drama Horror "Things That Are To Die", Drama Romance "Old Fashioned" and Romanian indie "Limani". We are also currently finishing editorial and mixing on the Taryn Manning Drama "A Light Beneath Their Feet", Horror "Villisca", Drama Thriller "Inner Fear" Spanish language Drama "Ciudades Desiertas", starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Ashley Hinshaw. We also just finished mixing Romanian Period Comedy "Pioneer's Palace" which will premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Keep an eye out for all these films coming to theaters and/or home video soon.
