Factory Studios has won two Golds for Best Sound Design and one Silver for Best Use of Music at this years Creative Circle show.
There was a double win for 'The Boy & The Piano' for John Lewis, which saw Factory’s Anthony Moore pick up a Gold for Sound Design and a Silver for Use of Music. This epic Christmas film saw Moore work closely with the original 16 track tape masters of Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ to create a stunning mix that weaved it’s way back in time through Elton’s amazing career. The spot saw Anthony continue his long standing relationship with director Seb Edwards at Academy and follows on from creating stand out work for Lacoste, Virgin Media and Jon Hopkins. This is now the eighth consecutive time Moore 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’.
The Creative Circle also saw Factory awarded a second Sound Design Gold for their work on ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ also for John Lewis. This tribute to the Queen classic saw Factory’s Anthony Moore and Mark Hills create a soundscape that allowed all the quirks and charm of this unique school performance to hit home on every level. Working with stems for the music track, the pair set about making the performance come alive with a special does of home-made, yet utterly charming comedic sound design. The film was directed by long time Factory friend Dougal Wilson at Blink Productions for adam&eveDDB.
Factory’s founding partner and creative director Anthony Moore says, “What a fabulous night for Factory at The Creative Circle. To have worked on so many iconic John Lewis campaigns over the years with our fine friends at Adam&Eve is truly humbling. Massive thanks must go to the fantastic team at A&E for taking us on this amazing journey. To make films that have become part of popular culture is such an honour and we are so proud to see our sound design work recognised by the Creative Circle jury. We put maximum love into these and we hope that shines through.”
