“Our experience of working with the fine team at Rukkus House was a dream come true.
Every single element of sound design was meticulously planned and executed. The ADR sessions were professional yet relaxed. All the technical details that could plague a film were handled with care. The quality of the mixing suite and mixing team was top shelf and we always felt that they cared deeply about our film and they ensured we were getting the absolute best sound available.
They handled the music placement and files, both original songs and score, with care and creativity. They were invested in our project and in us.
They listened to our concerns and they gave us excellent advice as we progressed through the mix.
We felt blessed to be in such good hands. Thank you Rukkus House!”
“There’s more to being “professional” than simple competence. You need the ability to anticipate, to be ready with solutions for the inevitable hiccups that accompany any creative work. The guys at Rukkus House—Doug and Neil—give you that in spades, with a “can do, let’s go” attitude that turns a tough session into an exhilarating experience. Simply first class.”
Malcolm Hillgartner – Director
