Soundelux Contributes to Call of Duty®: Black Ops II Live-Action Trailer ?Surprise?(November 19, 2012)
This marks Hallberg?s second collaboration with Activision?s blockbuster Call of Duty® franchise, following his work on the highly successful ?The Vet and The n00b? live-action spot produced in support of 2011?s Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3.
?The visceral and distinctive style of this piece, paired with the format of an action-packed 60-second trailer, offered an exciting challenge for the team at Soundelux ,? offers Supervising Sound Editor Per Hallberg. ?This trailer looks like a high-octane action movie, yet tells a story like a feature film. The level of intensity and story in ?Surprise? goes beyond what one would normally see in a trailer,? continued Hallberg.
In addition to intense action, the trailer?s sound needed to work well with the music, but also leave room for dialogue and comedic timing. ?There is a lot going on within the short span of 60- seconds,? added Hallberg. ?We wanted to support the intensity and the humor of the piece, while never losing sight of the desire for high-end sonic realism. I am really proud of our contribution. Our entire team of sound designers had a lot of fun with this trailer and very much enjoyed being part of this project.?
