We’re very excited to share Berkeley Street Media’s work on the Netflix original anime series: Ingress the Animation! The show was created by Niantic Labs of San Francisco and beautifully animated into 11 stunning episodes for the screen by Craftar, an up and coming boutique animation studio in Tokyo. We were delighted to take a break from live action or any visual role for that matter and showcase the depth of our capabilities in music, sound, audio mixing & post producing!
Let’s be real — just go to Netflix and watch it now and skip reading about “how excited we are” 😉
With Berkeley Street Media founder Ry Wardwell at the helm, not only did BSM envision, produce and closely direct the original score, but we also directed and designed all sound design, dialogue editing, music mixing, music placement, premixing and final dub stage mixing!
Ry’s stylistic vision for the score was the result of an immersive process, including the review of more than 10,000 tracks from indie artists around the globe. Ry collaborated with Composer Jacob Yoffee to develop the big shapes of the show’s musical palette, thematic elements, and its emotional language. Jacob worked with Ry’s cue-specific vision to sketch, compose and produce music nearly “wall-to-wall” for the show’s 11-episode first season — crafting an innovative, charged and entirely original score for nearly 300 minutes of animation!
We had almost total creative autonomy and trust from the show’s producers and studio management — tbh kind of a filmmaker’s wet dream! We have always taken pride in driving our editorial with exceptional music & sound, and yet, we did not expect to be entrusted with what was
effectively complete creative control to craft the sonic style, story narrative and most importantly the viewer’s emotional experience.
A huge thank you Niantic Labs CEO John Hanke (also Google Earth and Pokemon GO creator) for entrusting our team with their incredible story and Craftar’s stunning animation work — bringing their work to life sonically was a dream job and what we developed was received as a raving success!
Check out the beautiful, action-packed, freshly-soundtracked show on Netflix!
