Thanks to our friends at Silver Sound, we’ve got the smoothest beats in New York.
If you take a look at our latest YouTube video, you’ll find the beautiful story behind Sugar Mutts Rescue, a non-profit dog rescue and adoption service based in Brooklyn. Our friends over at Silver Sound were instrumental to this project, helping us record the audio and taking the reins on the sound mixing for the final video.
We love what they do, and we’re so glad they could help us out! Here’s a little bit more about their award-winning team.
Who is Silver Sound?
Silver Sound is an Emmy Award-winning sound studio and team of location sound mixers founded in 2003 by Cory Choy and Robin Shore, both of whom graduated from NYU Film School. They work on everything — music videos, documentaries, feature films, and art installations, as well as smaller projects, like our Sugar Mutts video.
Notable Projects and Recent Accolades
Recently, Silver Sound did the sound design and mixing for a feature film directed by Peter Vack that made an appearance and won the Adam Yauch Hörnblowér Award at the SXSW festival in Austin. They also worked on a short web series called Table Talk that premiered at SeriesFest, an annual festival in Denver dedicated to showcasing the best and boldest episodic storytelling. The company also hosts a film festival called Silver Sound Showdown every year at Brooklyn Bowl, where aspiring filmmakers can showcase their work.
Their most impressive accomplishment, perhaps, was winning a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Sound Mixing – Live Action in 2015 for their work on ABC’s Born to Explore with Richard Wiese. In addition to this TV work, Silver Sound has worked with a range of high-profile clients including Facebook, Nickelodeon, HBO, the NFL, and Sesame Street. Most of their clients connect with them by word-of-mouth referral, based on their excellent track record.
Through their collaboration with Sesame Street, they were able to work on a new character, Julie, who has autism. This was really important to both Sesame Street and Silver Sound, because they really felt passionate about the character and what she represented — the importance of treating those with autism with as much respect as you would anyone else.
Silver Sound is based in New York and has been for more than 10 years, and they pride themselves on being a part of the community.
Through their work at Silver Sound, the team is constantly meeting new collaborators — like us! After working with our own Julie Gratz on a few music video projects, Cory was introduced to Keys to the Community. Tarchiso Longobardi did the mix for the Sugar Mutts video, while Zoey Brock went on-site for the cat cafe video (coming soon!) and will be mixing the sound for that as well.
We look forward to continuing to work with Silver Sound on all of our upcoming video projects, as their professionalism and passion is unmatched.
