Client Testimonial

I have been working with Fonic for many years, on animated series and a bunch of pilots. It's strange to analyse the studio as I'm so comfortable with the team now, but it's true to say I love working with them and cannot imagine working with anyone else now.

We chat though the sound design approach, how stylistic or realistic it's to be, music driven or diegetic – exploring different options for each scene then balance through the sound music and dialogues, the focus to pull the best reading and experience out of the scene and the cohesive whole in mind.

I do consider Barnaby and all the team friends now, but I love that this has been built upon a professional respect for each other. They really listen to what you trying to achieve with the piece, they are very good at what they do. If you get chance to see the Foley process in action – it's a joy to behold.
