Clued up and on-key


On-Key Sound owns three sound studios – one in Linden and two in Auckland
Park, Johannesburg.

“We offer a complete audio post service that goes beyond merely mixing
sound,’ says On-Key Sound Studios owner Janno Muller. “We do extensive
sound design, Foley, ADR, Sound FX and ambient location recordings dependent
on each project. Since 2001, we have worked on a wide range of local and
international film, television, radio, sound design and multimedia projects.

“Permanent staff members include me and John Chaka while part time members
are Tiny du Preez and Marc Bentel. We also collaborate with Origin Audio in
Cape Town.’

The studios consist of two 5.1 surround suites and a stereo suite, each running
the latest Nuendo 6 software. Each suite is EBU R128 loudness compliant.

“Alongside many other projects in 2013,’ adds Muller, “we completed work on
four feature films, namely iNumber Number, Musiek vir die Agtergrond
(Background Music), Stuur Groete aan Mannetjies Roux (Regards to Mannetjies
Roux) and Between Friends.’

iNumber Number, an action heist movie directed by Donovan Marsh (Spud 1 and
2), which screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, was picked up by
Universal Studios for a remake – a first ever for a South African movie.
“Muller and his team had minimal time and budget to complete the movie, yet
went all out on the sound design and mix. We were blown away by the end
result,’ says Marsh.

iNumber Number is set for local release in March 2014 and will also be released
in the US in its original format.
