Wave Studios NY awarded at both ‘The One Show’ and NY Festival in New York

15 May 2019

The smiles just keep coming this week at Wave Studios as they have won numerous accolades at two of New York’s prestigious industry ceremonies. First up was a Gold award for sound design at the recent ‘The One Show’. The New York Times spot entitled ‘The Truth Is Worth It’ received the impressive award for Sound Designer Aaron Reynolds and his work on the series of films. They were created by Droga5 NY and directed by Furlined Directors Daniel Lindsay and TJ Martin.

Impressive in itself, but even more so when you consider that the studio has been open for less than a year. It doesn’t end there though as they have gone on to win even larger at NY Festivals Advertising Awards. Here the studios were honoured with both a 1st and 2nd prize of only five awarded. The first prize was in recognition of Aaron Reynold’s sound design for The New York Times. The second recognises Jack Sedgwick’s sound design for Exxon ‘Boxer’. Created by Abbott Mead Vickers and directed by Stink’s directing duo, Jones + Tino.

Sound Designer/Mixer Aaron Reynolds moved stateside to head up creative of the studios and along with the team has already created an impressive body of work. Among them is the film that has won two prestigious awards. After the success of the Amsterdam studios, it was the same intention that led Wave to create the New York outpost. They would deliver the same values and craftsmanship that have led them to become the most award-winning sound studio. Winning an award at this level, after such a short period, is a testament to the vision for the brand.
