Studio Tinto – Amazing Things Happen Autism Animation
We wanted to tell you about this great film which raises awareness about autism – aimed at young non-autistic people with the hope of stimulating understanding and acceptance in future generations.
It starts by explaining how all brains work differently and control how we learn, how we feel, and the way we communicate. It also explains how the autistic brain accentuates these differences.
Through gentle animation and sound it shows the viewer how autistic people can be good at tasks we may find difficult eg drawing or mathematics an how things that regular people find easy can be extremely difficult for them eg making friends or looking people in the eye.
Despite the fact that their senses don’t always communicate well with the brain and life can be overwhelming and confusing – they still need friends and help from people around them. You just have to adjust your view to see how they see the world. Everything can seem OK from the outside and in most cases they are not able to ask for help.
We were approached by director Alex Amelines, (owner at Studio Tinto), and asked to contribute to the completion on the audio of this film.
We had the pleasure of recording and mixing actor David Gant (Braveheart, Final Fantasy, Sherlock) for the English version of this video. Mike Avgeros from our sister company Soho Sonic also worked on the full mix. He improved the quality of the sounds effects and music in a way that really helped to enhance the storytelling and the emotional impact of the video. One of the bigger challenges was to create clarity, depth and focus on the narration which really helps deliver the message.
This video is intended to start discussion and be viewed by all people, especially teachers and parents.
