After a snipers mission is compromised he must rely on his deadbeat housemate to see him through. Ari Kruger from Sketchbook Studios x us to score his short film Jakkals13. The brief was to compose music that was ‘cinematic’ in nature and to provide a musical backdrop to the unfolding tension of the story, without being obtrusive or too dramatic. We also handled the audio post-production, including sound design and final mix. The film premiered last year in the South African competition at the SHNIT International Short Film Festival. It’s also been selected as a Vimeo Staff Pick and at the time of writing has 167 000 views on the platform.
