Now Recording: ‘How To Train Your Dragon: The Series’


We are extremely excited to be recording dialogue for the first season of Dreamworks Animation‘s upcoming ‘How To Train Your Dragon‘ television series.  The show, based on the highly popular film, will air on Cartoon Network beginning in 2012.

While it is too far in advance of the show’s release for us to divulge any specifics, we can say that the show remains true to the spirit of the original film and will be sure to please fans of the movie’s unique blend of heart & humor.  Soundworks is tremendously proud to be collaborating with the outstanding creative team behind the production and we expect the show to be a huge hit with audiences worldwide.  You can check out the official press release here.  And below, you can watch a video with some helpful hints for dragon-training.


‘Tom & Jerry and The Wizard of Oz’


Soundworks is proud to announce the release of Warner Bros Animation‘s all-new feature-length film, ‘Tom & Jerry and the Wizard of Oz‘.  The movie follows everyone’s favorite cat-and-mouse duo as they travel to the land of Oz and join-in on the classic adventure that we all know and love.

The Soundworks staff had a tremendous amount of fun recording all of the dialogue, ADR and music vocals for the film, which is currently available to rent on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and other video-on-demand outlets. The Blu-ray/DVD release will be available in stores on August 23rd.

Directed by animation-wizard Spike Brandt, with casting and voice-direction by our close friend Maria Estrada, the film stars the extraordinary voice talents of Grey Delisle, Laraine Newman, Kath Soucie, Rob Paulsen, Michael Gough, Todd StashwickStephen Root, Frances Conroy and Joe Alaskey.

Disney Read-Alongs & Apps: ‘Cars 2′, ‘Tinker Bell’, ‘Finding Nemo’


Continuing Soundworks’ long-standing collaboration with Walt Disney Records and Disney Publishing Worldwide, we are pleased to announce the release of several new Read-Along books and iPad/iPhone Interactive Apps. These multimedia Disney products feature original audio produced by Soundworks, combined with dialogue clips from the actual movie cast members and music from the Walt Disney Records Music Library – to create a one-of-a-kind interactive learning experience.

First off, there is the ‘Cars 2 Read-Along‘. The book-and-CD package can be found at Amazon. The content of the Read-Along is digitally reformatted and combined with games & other interactive features for the ‘Cars 2 Storybook Deluxe‘ iPad App, which can be found here at iTunes.

Soundworks is in the process of recording dialogue and music vocals for 17 all-new 22-minutes episodes of Disney’s hit show, “Handy Manny“. Six of these will comprise 3 double-length specials (à la the “Motorcycle Adventure” and “Big Construction Job” episodes).

Below, you can see a few photos taken during one of our recent Handy Manny recording sessions. Coincidentally, we were privileged to be recording three 1970’s icons (Henry Winkler as “Mr. Diller”, Marion Ross as “Mrs. Lopart” and Florence Henderson as “Aunt Ginny”) all on the same day, so we were more than pleased to document the occasion.

Now Recording: ‘Red Faction: Armageddon – The Machinima Miniseries’

Soundworks is currently recording dialogue for Machinima’s upcoming ‘Red Faction: Armageddon‘ miniseries, based on the newest installment of the popular videogame. The story takes place 50 years after the previous chapter, following Darius Mason and the Mars colonists as they confront the threat of an evil alien race that has been unleashed on the planet. An action-packed production in it’s own right, the miniseries will function as a supplemental narrative, to be released in conjunction with the game. In addition to dialogue recording, the Soundworks team will be contributing full audio post for the series (sound design, mix, and music score).

Check out the game trailer below.
