XBOX: Forza Motorsport 5

I didn't get to do the sound design on this fast-paced, dynamic and explosive TV spot, but I did mix it in stereo and 5.1 Surround for HDTV! Working with SF Agency 215, I mixed a :30, :20 and :15 cutdowns for their client Microsoft. I wish I could post the surround mix on YouTube! It's definitely a fun one. Cars are zipping by from all sides, towards you, away from you, across the screen. The race-car sound design was combined with rear-channel reverb for the music and some ambient sound effects. It's nice that this spot had essentially zero voice over! We could just let those explosive sound effects totally dominate and surround the viewer.
