Futz Butler

The Futz Butler prides themselves on their unconventional approach to sound design and production, avoiding the obvious in favour of innovative methods that yield exceptional results. This commitment to pushing boundaries was exemplified in a recent multi-location commercial shoot we shot for them, which served as a testament to the team’s dedication to capturing the perfect sound design for their projects.

While some may view the Futz Butler’s methods as unconventional, they are, in fact, a meticulously documented process of capturing the ideal sounds for each individual and unique project. Whether it’s the thunderous beat of a war drum resonating through the cavernous expanse of an abandoned warehouse or the ethereal whistle of the wind dancing across a mountain bridge in Tignes, the team leaves no stone unturned in their quest for sonic sound design perfection.

Each location presents a myriad of sound possibilities, and the team harnesses the power of their microphones to capture a diverse array of audio elements. Armed with state-of-the-art recording equipment, they meticulously scan the environment, capturing every nuance and texture to enrich their extensive library of sound effects.

But the process doesn’t end there. Back at their studio, the captured sounds undergo a transformative journey, passing through a labyrinth of plug-ins, amplifiers, tape recordings, and an array of other gadgets. Through meticulous processing and manipulation, the team breathes life into each sound, imbuing it with depth, richness, and character.

To showcase this intricate process, we collaborated with Futz Butler to create a visual representation of their sound design artistry. Through a fusion of visual artistry and soundscapes, we sought to convey the transformative power of modern-day sound design at its highest level. From abstract visualizations of sound waves to immersive multimedia experiences, our collaboration served as a testament to the boundless creativity and ingenuity of the Futz Butler team.

In essence, the multi-location commercial shoot served as more than just a documentation of sound capture; it was a celebration of creativity, innovation, and the relentless pursuit of sonic excellence. By pushing the boundaries of conventional sound design, Futz Butler continues to redefine what’s possible in the world of audio production, inspiring awe and admiration in equal measure.
