We know it’s a rare privilege to be part of team like Heirloom. Great people, great stories, and a rare melding of talent that creates great art as well. For the second year in a row, our industry peers have recognized our hard work and honored us with multiple Voice Arts awards.
Known as the Oscars of the voiceover world, the Voice Arts awards are about as big as it gets in our industry. When names like Disney and Pixar are on the same stage, we know we’re doing something right.
Rojo Studios was honored with the Best Audio Engineering prize for the second year in a row, this year for The Dragon and the Raven. It’s an exciting story with political intrigue, romance and epic battles at sea.
Thanks for listening to our stories. I hope we can enjoy many more together.
We are thrilled to announce that two of our Audio Adventures have been nominated for 6 awards in 3 categories at this year’s Voice Arts Awards (The “Oscars” of the audio industry)! The red carpet ceremony will be held at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, CA on November 13th. Other nominees include Disney, Pixar, and many more!
Which, as an audio drama production company, is saying a lot.
Our latest production, In Freedom’s Cause, was honored with four Voice Arts Awards, the voiceover industry’s premier prize. Participants in the awards this year included Pixar, Disney, Blackstone Audio, and William Shatner. Pictured below, holding two of our awards, are Executive Producer Bill Heid (left) and director/producer John Fornof.
We won for:
Outstanding Narration for Brian Blessed’s brilliant performance
Outstanding Audio Production
Outstanding Audio Engineering (Rojo Studios did that!)
Two of our audio adventures have been nominated for a total of TEN Voice Arts Awards in the following categories: Audiobook Narration, Oustanding Production, Outstanding Casting, Audio Engineering, and Outstanding Spoken Word! Rob Jorgensen was nominated for Best Audio Production and Best Audio Engineering.
We’re excited to announce the nomination of Under Drake’s Flag for Best Audio Drama in the 2015 Audie Awards. The Audies are the top prize in the audio publishing world, as the Grammys are in the music world. Rojo Studios created and recorded all of the custom sound effects for Under Drake’s Flag, utilizing swords, guns, bags of sand, tree branches, ropes, and more. If selected, this will be Rojo’s third Audie.
Rojo Studios is partnering with Heirloom Audio to produce a new audio drama based on the life of William Wallace. Writer John Fornof adapted the classic G.A. Henty tale, In Freedom’s Cause. Production continues with planned release around Christmas, 2014.
The voice track editing is done, and the sound design has begun in earnest. Swords, horses, fireplaces, large wooden doors and…barns have been our focus over the past few weeks.
This barn was abandoned a few years ago, and the pigeons and owls have moved in. We set up all of our gear and began recording, but our presence scared all of the birds away! So we essentially recorded an hour of a silent, empty room. We’ll go back this weekend to try another approach.
