Testimonials

"Stephanie was able to design sound effects which perfectly suited the character of the existing art and animations. Her expertise on how to balance the many competing parts of the soundscape in AR ensured that each user would hear the content most relevant to them."

"...While many experiences in these new mediums end up as glorified tech demos, "Dr. G." shipped as an actual game full of AAA visuals, Hollywood actors, and an orchestral score. Steph's task then was to take a traditional amount of game audio content, and implement it on what may currently be the most complex piece of consumer technology on the planet, bending sound design, FMOD, Unity and the nascent Magic Leap platform to her will."

"Steph worked as one of our key audio designers at Weta Gameshop, helping realise spatial audio, designing iconic soundscapes, crafting attention-grabbing player feedback and assembling Rhian Sheehan's amazing music for Dr. Grordbort's Invaders - a launch game that was crafted for a complex new system, the Magic Leap One that was being built under us as we went. She did this with flair and I recommend her amazing talents for parties, bar-mitzvahs and also games and film."

Greg Broadmore

Game Director, Dr Grordbort's Invaders

 

"Working from New Zealand in early pre-production on a new IP, we needed a concept soundscape that captured the key emotions of our world. Stephanie jumped right into the creative process with us as a true collaborator. She brought unexpected & powerful ideas and a commitment to excellence that included generating new field recordings and sourcing unique instruments (both of which went beyond initial expectations). The results are superb, truly bringing our baby to life. I look forward to working more with Stephanie soon, and highly recommend her work to anyone after compelling sound design."
