Odeon Pre Show Sound Design

Odeon Cinemas have launched a new Pre-Show Welcome Film, designed to be shown before every film, in every cinema up and down the country.

Created to evolve the audience in a complete cinema experience, the film encompasses three distinct sequences to showcase the trailers, the adverts and of course the main feature itself, the film.

The Films

The welcome film follows a huge revolving ‘O’ as it swirls and circles around the screen like a giant meteorite, buffering around the earth before it crashes in a huge cloud of dust and debris. This sequence last about 15 minutes and welcomes the audience into the cinematic world.

The 2nd section takes you into the trailers. The ‘O’ is now centred around a light, carefree atmosphere of bubbles and peacefulness. Birdsong and uplifting music float amongst the bubbles bringing the trailers ever closer.

The 3rd and final section is a dramatic deep-space sequence which propels you into the main film with a full on powerful cinematic experience. A astronaut space walks inside the giant ‘O’, which in turn orbits amongst the stars and planets. Nothing is better, bigger and more cinematic than space itself.

The Sound Design

The sound design was crafted, not only to match the huge sequences but to take it to another level and enhance the audience’s experience and immerse them into the cinematic experience as soon as they sit down. Un-intrusive yet engaging, the massive soaring sounds and dramatic tension beds, capture your imagination, getting you in the mood and getting you salivating for the main film.
