An Bronntanas is a contemporary Irish crime thriller set against the backdrop of the Connemara Coastline on the West of Ireland and the dramatic lives of a local lifeboat crew. The story is told through both Irish and English.
Gritty, dark and dense are some of the words to describe the mix for An Bronntanas. As with other darker crime productions, maintaining clear dialogue throughout is always a primary consideration for audio. With this project in particular there was also the large areas of VFX to carefully treat. A large boat scene which was created by Windmill Lane VFX was a great opportunity to craft the scene using SFX. Layering an array of SFX amongst the background music resulted a dense soundscape befitting of the intensity of the scene.
