The nominees have been announced and we’re absolutely thrilled to hear that Lionhead Studios have been nominated for the Audio Accomplishment award for Fable: The Journey.

In order to achieve the most engaging and dramatic sound, Lionhead collaborated a truly world class group of audio professionals comprising of a 35+ team from both sides of the Atlantic. Teaming up once again with Microsoft Studios Central Media Audio Team in the US, Soundelux DMG and US Foley Team including Hollywood’s Foley artist of choice: Gary Hecker. For the 1st time we also forged a new partnership with British Film Sound talent at Pinewood Studios and the Foley artist Pete Burgis whose body of Foley work has cinematic greats such as The Harry Potter Films, Clash of the Titans to name a few. Foley for the cutscenes took 1.5 weeks to complete, with even more days for all the custom sound assets created on the Foley stage.
