Day in day out, a middle aged man is isolated by the routine of a ‘modern’ existence.
Lifey | Do you exist
Cristobal Catalan’s short film “Lifey” 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.
About the project
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 for Lifey.
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.
