December News – ‘Can You Live Without Your Phone?’ and ‘To Build a Fire’
It has been a busy 2016 here at Fonic and as the year draws to a close, the final month was no exception. One of the projects Fonic was involved in December was BBC Radio 1’s ‘Can you Live Without Your Phone?’ 20-minute documentary. Fonic recorded the voiceover and provided the sound design and mix and the documentary is now available to watch on BBC iPlayer. WATCH - Can You Live Without Your Phone? December also saw more success for Fx Goby’s 2D animation short film, To Build a Fire. In the first week of December, To Build a Fire was screened at the Paris Courts Devant Short Film Festival's cine-concert, to kick off the week-long festival. Composed by Mathieu Alvado, around 20 musicians took to the stage to perform the animation's award winning soundtrack. Fonic is very proud to have provided the Sound Design and Mix for To Build a Fire and congratulates Fx Goby on the film’s success since it’s June 2016 release. Currently touring festivals, the film has picked up awards including the Oscar qualifying Animation Grand Prize at the Rhode Island Film Festival, Best International Animation at Shorts Mexico, Best Original Score at Fimucine Canary Islands and Special Accolade at Animaze Montreal.
