duotone had the pleasure of working with Y&R on this awesome anthem spot for the launch of Dell Technologies.
Featuring Jeffrey Wright, the spot reveals the true magic behind Dell Technologies… The confluence of technological prowess and human innovation. Our musical approach highlights these aspects, combining whimsy, focus, and humanity into a motivating soundtrack.
It was truly a blast to score and bring life to the amazing in-camera effects captured on the set, and to make this spot a reality.
In Dig Two Graves, a girl’s obsession with her brother’s disappearance leads her on a nightmarish journey through a small town’s Gothic landscape where she is faced with a deadly proposition. How far will she go to save the people she loves?
Supported by a “particularly noteworthy [and] subtly ominous” score that “heightens the tension and perfectly sets different moods throughout”… the music of Dig Two Graves is a combination of original composition by duotone’s own Brian Deming, and the reimagined recordings of members of the experimental rock band “Man Man’. Traditional folk instruments combine with orchestral manipulations and field-recorded ambiences yielding a chilling emotional effect.
Featuring standout performances from Ted Levine (Silence of the Lambs) and Samantha Isler (Captain Fantastic), the film made its theatrical and streaming release on March 24, 2017… And if you’re not conviced to go out and watch it now, check out these glowing reviews from Variety and the New York Times!
duotone was proud to work on a series of 5 spots for Google in honor of World Teacher Day. Comprising four 90 second films and one 60 second anthem, the spots feature a diverse cast of inspiring teachers who use innovative techniques to engage their students.
Each of the spots required a very different approach to help bring out the personality and humanity of their teachers and classrooms, so duotone created 5 separate pieces of music drawing on a wide variety of genres, from blues, to orchestral, to post-rock.
At duotone we know how important teachers are to the future of our children and the betterment of this world, and we are extremely proud and honored to have worked on such a great set of films! #ItTakesATeacher
Ulta and the team at Mullen were looking for the ultimate collaboration for their Lose Yourself campaign… And they found it with duotone audio group and Genevieve.
After a long round of license searching, the duotone team was able to make a connection with Genevieve’s song “Show Your Colors”. The sentiment was perfect for the brand, but they wanted a more upbeat version that expressed the vitality and warmth that ULTA represents. To this end duotone created two custom remixes using the original stems, one for the main campaign and one with a little extra holiday flavor.
After everything we are so excited to present this campaign, which shows just how perfect it is when the right brand works with the right artist and the right music house to create perfect harmony.
Even an asshole can save a life…
And in this new Donate Life film with The Martin Agency, we learn just how easy it is for any asshole to donate their organs and do a little good.
The film features a moving rearrangement of Coldplay’s “Fix You” by duotone’s own Civil Brother, and a masterful mix by duotone audio post. And the star power doesn’t end there… It features Thomas Jane in the title role, and VO by the indomitable Will Arnett.
We were incredibly honored to be a part of this moving, funny, and important campaign.
