Sonder Studios: NHS

About Sonder Studios

Based in Yorkshire, Sonder is a video production studio specialising in film, animation and motion graphics.

Their team is made up of experienced directors, producers, motion graphics artists and animators who all share the same passion for creating compelling visual content that has a lasting impact.

Often focusing on music-related content, the Sonder team are very selective about the soundtracks they use and consider this to be one of the most important elements of a film. 

NHS Brief

The goal was to understand and emphasise the BAME community's achievements and the significance of its contributions, going all the way back to the beginning of the NHS and the Windrush era.

In order to keep the audience's attention throughout the documentary, Sonder searched for the appropriate genre of music to play in the background.

The aim was to find the right combination between the tone and emotion of the interviews and music and create a division between the different scenes.

"The importance of music is paramount within film, without it a film is only half done. Getting the wrong music can change the whole dynamic and feel of what the filmmaker is trying to evoke. so understanding that feeling is key when selecting music"
Simon Fong Wah
Creative Producer, Sonder Studios

The Outcome

Rehegoo came back with a selection of music that fit the scenes perfectly and set the tone for the entire duration of the film. They hand-picked nine songs which played continuously throughout the interviews, reinforcing the emotional undertones of the topics discussed in each scene.

It made Sonder’s job a lot easier, allowing them to focus on editing the footage without spending time searching for music which is often a very time consuming and difficult process.
