Velux – To Do Ta Da

Wray Ward asked us to create a piece that emulated the excitement of putting a room together and bringing light into your new home. They wanted the music to build into a beat, then lift when the Velux Skylights were revealed. This was a blast to compose for Velux and bringing in Emily Sage, our in house vocalist and composer, for vocalisms took it to a whole new level.

AAF Silver Medal

We were honored to be asked to compose music for the 2022 AAF Silver Medal Award recipient video. The video debuted at the American Advertising Awards Gala in honor of our good friend, John Roberts, ECD at Wray Ward. It was incredibly special to work on this piece and the team had such a great time building on the emotion of this project.

What’s Next

We were asked by our buddies at HMH to produce a piece where Hot Sake lead composer Jason Hausman would “perform” Thomas Built by composing music from the sounds recorded in their main manufacturing plants and a Thomas Built school bus. This was so much a fun to work on because the people at Thomas Built were so great and working with the kids at Northwest School of the Arts was so fun, they brought so much life to this project.

Brighter. Together.

When the team at Wray Ward asked us to work on this national TV spot for GE, we instantly knew we wanted to feature our in-house composer & vocalist Emily Sage. Once we let the client hear her voice, they were in agreement! Simple. Catchy. Fun.

Sheetz Freakz

Hausman/Hot Sakē + Tattoo Projects + Sheetz = BAM!!!

Winner of Best Video at the American Advertising Awards! One of our favorite projects of 2018 – such cool clients to work with! This shows what custom music/scoring to picture does for a project. Be sure to play it loud! (headphones even better!)

Network ID’s

A compilation of Discovery’s Velocity Network ID’s. Our friends at Nathaniel Howe Studios in Beverly Hills are the some of the best we have ever worked with. When they call on us for sound, we know we are about to be involved in something very special. They certainly did not disappoint with the stunning animations for Discovery’s Velocity Network. Live car recordings, sledge hammers, dumpsters, old radios, anything we could grab to make as many original sounds as possible. So much fun!

Why Skylights?

Wray Ward asked us to build music that began with the chaos of everyday life. They wanted these sounds to build into a beat, then lift away when the Velux Skylights were opened. A good 80% of the sounds in this music track are kitchen and household items. Building from chaos to a somewhat defined rhythm, to a beautiful floating moment. Singing steel spatulas, ambient guitar and subtle strings take it home.

When the Game Stands Tall

We were asked to create a poignant and moving piano piece to work with the official trailer for Sony Pictures Entertainment’s film When The Game Stands Tall. Hot Sakē’s contribution to this trailer can be found at :42-1:25.

Outer Banks – BOX

Multi-Award Winning campaign by the masterminds at BooneOakley. Simple and yet so effective! We had a blast handling sound design and mix for these three spots as well as the continuing campaign.

Volume 2 of a music video series – Played By Hausman – feat. Matt Postle for CLT CreativeMornings.

We were asked to produce a few pieces where Hot Sake lead composer Jason Hausman would perform a business or product, then compose a piece of music from the sounds. They knew this was right up Jason’s alley as it is one of the more requested things he does for film scoring and commercial music.

We suggested that we feature a new solo artist for each one. We brought in Cinematographer Ben Premeaux (HBO, Dreamville) to shoot and direct this project. The second location is Boingo Graphics.

All sounds (except Trumpet) are from Boingo Graphics.
