Sound Design, Sound Mixing

Day in day out, a middle aged man is isolated by the routine of a ‘modern’ existence.

Cristobal Catalan’s short film “Life(y)” is currently making its way through international film festivals. It was officially selected at New York’s ‘Dumbo Film Festival’, a finalist at Rolling Ideas Film Festival and the ‘Victoria Film Festival’. The film has also won the best Short Film Director award at the Indo-Global International Film Festival and the South Film and Arts Academy Festival.


Claire from Porth Sound worked remotely with London based film director Cristobal Catalan during the Spring of 2019 to design a repetitive, yet emotively evolving soundscape.

The process was creative and involved a few rounds of back-and-forth discussion before the final mix was completed. Online project management tools were utilised to keep both sides of the team on track and to ensure communication was clear.
