CATONSVILLE, MD, September 19, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The sound design of the feature film, "Lovely Molly" (Amber Entertainment, Haxan Films), which debuted at the Toronto Film Festival on Wednesday, September 14th, is receiving high praise from industry bloggers. PopMark Media's Sound Division, Studio Unknown, was responsible for the full sound design package of the film.
Directed by Eduardo Sanchez, known for his 1999 horror, "The Blair Witch Project," "Lovely Molly" centers on a troubled young woman and the evil power that exists inside her. The film relies heavily on sound for story support.
"Without taking anything away from Lodge's performance, the sound design truly IS the movie; it's trickled with creepy hoof stomps and horse snorts throughout," touts horror blog, Bloody Disgusting. Twitch Film called the sound mix "strong and aggressive."
Sound design on the film, which was managed by Kevin Hill, along with Matt Davies and Dave West, included location and in-house Foley, sound effects editing, ambient sound, voice effects, and mixing. To create authenticity, Hill and Davies traveled to the Hagerstown house and adjacent barn in which the film was shot to capture footsteps, creaky floors, and horse snorts and hoof steps, which play a critical role in the storyline.
"The supernatural traces of evil throughout the film provided us with a unique opportunity to blend some of the sounds we captured on location with sounds we were able to create at the studio," explains Hill.
The film also includes two pieces of music written by PopMark's Lisa Horan and Stephen Joseph Antonelli.
