Showcase: That Yorkshire Sound

Today, please take the next two minutes and thirty-one seconds to enjoy this amazing new film by Marcus Armitage.

It’s hard to not overstress the importance of sound in animation. I think most can agree, there is a wonderful moment when working on a project and you replace the temp track with the final audio. It’s as if magic happens and it brings the piece together and makes it feel whole.

That Yorkshire Sound is a perfect example of how audio can help to shape a piece. Between the quick cuts, being bombarded with different sounds, and Marcus’ beautiful pastel animation, the film is an engaging tapestry of sound and picture from start to finish.
