The project won Best Audio Mix in a Commercial as well as Best Re-Record or Adaptation in Broadcast Advertising
Factory, London's leading sound design and recording studio, has picked up two prestigious Music And Sound Awards for its work on the 2018 John Lewis Christmas film, ‘The Boy and The Piano.’ The MAS Awards jury recognised the stellar sound work of Factory’s Anthony Moore to award the project Best Audio Mix in a Commercial as well as Best Re-Record or Adaptation in Broadcast Advertising.
This iconic Christmas film, featuring the legendary Elton John, placed the intricate craft of the sound design at the forefront of the creative concept. To achieve this, Anthony was given exclusive access to work with the original 16 track tape masters of ‘Your Song,’ John’s first major hit. From here, Anthony was able to rearrange and sound design the track to create a unique soundscape which took the viewer on an incredible sonic journey through Elton John’s career.
‘The Boy and The Piano’ is now the eighth consecutive time Anthony has been involved in the sound design for the highly acclaimed John Lewis Christmas campaigns for Adam&EveDDB, a history that dates right back to 2011’s debut with ‘The Long Wait.’
This double MAS Awards win for ‘The Boy and the Piano’ follows on from recent Sound Design and Use of Music wins for the film at this years Creative Circle and Cannes Lions.
Factory’s founding partner and creative director Anthony Moore says: "To win two MAS Awards for ‘The Boy and the Piano’ is truly mind blowing! The MAS jury know their sound - it’s your industry peers. To be awarded twice by them is such an honour. A lot of love went into crafting the sound for ‘The Boy and The Piano’ and it’s great to see it recognised by MAS."
