Flavorlab dusted off the sleigh bells for a jam packed holiday season
In the world of post production, nothing says Yuletide cheer like sunburn and lazy heat. Here at Flavorlab, there’s no exception. In July, the team started work to bring some audio magic to the holiday season on your screen. Flavorlab Sound kicked off the cheer providing sound design and mix for Hallmark’s Christmas at Pemberley Manor, A Christmas on Honeysuckle Lane, and Lifetime’s A Very Nutty Christmas.
“It’s business as usual until the real Christmas season begins. It’s weird when you realize you’ve already had it.”
Eric Stern, audio engineer
In September, they were in Lab 2 cracking nuts and crinkling wreaths before descending into mixing. Initially, Producer’s Toolbox was asked to license one track to Hallmark. Eventually, this became all music supervision for Honeysuckle Lane. They dug up dozens of vintage Christmas tunes. After, they categorized these tracks into sections. Finally, they narrowed down the tracks with the production team.
“Christmas music is often public domain so it’s big with music libraries. It was a lot of material to work through in not a lot of time, but the process was super collaborative.”
Ricky Holman, director of licensing
By December, rounding out the season just before the holiday, Flavorlab Score provided a tune for Samantha Bee’s Christmas on I.C.E. They penned the vintage style winter bop “Frost Bee the Snow Woman.”
