This WA-produced short film Factory 293, directed by Roderick Mackay called for a bespoke sound design that re-created Soviet-era Russia from scratch (the film was shot and produced in sunny Perth). Along with location production sound, Damaru studio edited and mixed the film, as well recorded and edited all of the ADR dialogue.

In a remote part of Stalin’s war-torn Union of the Soviet Socialist Republic, Grigori, Manager of munitions FACTORY293, faces the realities of his existence. Despite the infatuation of his female factory workforce, he is drawn to increasingly melancholic thoughts – Stalin has abandoned him. With a howling blizzard outside, the factory’s power is suddenly cut, interrupting Grigori’s intent to take decisive action. In a flurry to restore the power before the inspectors arrive, Grigori directs two of his machinists into the raging blizzard to investigate.

Produced by MEANING MAKER and DIGITAL MEDIA ARTS, this intentionally ambitious project was designed to throw its production team into the deep end, testing and expanding their capacities across all facets of filmmaking.
