The Grand Master


Travelling to Okinawa to meet one of the top Grand Masters in Japan, this brand film looks at his life, and what the learning and teaching of Karate means to him.

The goal with the sound design on this piece was to keep is subtle and realistic, rather than whip pans and cinematic crunching. We did this with a selection of library foley sounds placed in more realistic spaces with rich, textural reverbs and subtle atmos. As with many of these films, the aim is to go unnoticed, so more foley than SFX.
