Before: After: As digital warriors, we fight for the producer, pushing creativity and technology to deliver, no matter what. Here’s an example of our ADR services that saved a complete scene of a reality TV show for MTV. The talent were not professional actors, and we were left to direct the talent and deliver this
Buttons was approached by Meredith Corporation Publications, Siempre Mujer to produce a marketing piece demonstrating the day and the life of the magazines exclusive hispanic audience. Siempre Mujer is the only America publication that is printed in Spanish. Buttons brought on experienced hispanic producer, Giovanna Aguilar to drive the ship.
Buttons was asked to handle the post package for this heartfelt TV pilot about a Syrian Neighborhood family on Long Island. Buttons advised an appropriate workflow, and production schedule of 2 weeks, with Jeremy Goldsmith in the editorial driver's seat under the direction of Adam Nadler.
Kitty Pigrim and Schribner Publishing returned to Buttons to handle the digital content production to support the release of Kitty's second book, The Stolen Chalice. Buttons advised the workflow based on the visual assets provided by Kitty's international travels, and the Buttons post finishing team included Paul Levin handling editorial, compositing, and color. Rich handled the music searching, edit, Vo record, and final mix.
Buttons was asked by Dogstar Productions to help solve an urgent matter. Wing Chun Masters vol 1 of 4 was scheduled for release, and to promote it's release, Buttons was asked if we could produce a theatrical trailer to be in theaters before the feature film, Karate Kid.. They also wanted some help in chossing a media budget and schedule. Buttons proceeded to propose a concept and script, and reached out to a media company to determine that the largest concentration of Wing Chun practitioners, and chinese speaking patrins were in the New York City and San Fransisco areas...
Rich Macar came to New York with a Synclavier and started solving creative problems on tight schedules and tight budgets – for projects like Steven King's Maximum Overdrive and the haunting music-box scene in Francis Ford Coppola's Peggy Sue Got Married.
That was 1985 at Sound One NY.
Because Rich could already see the digital future – the highest quality sound at the fastest pace and lowest cost – he was the first of the digital warriors.
So by 1988 he had founded Buttons.
Today, Buttons is a whole network of digital warriors – dedicated to inventing new ways to deliver sound as well as post finishing, at higher velocity and lower cost – and to keep on pushing the envelope of technology.
Take a look at our work – for films like Happy Feet and Legend of the Guardians, on TV shows for Denis Leary's Apostle Films, on NBC's Hannibal, and for advertising McDonalds, Discovercard and more – on this website.
Then let's talk about what our digital warriors can do for you.
