  • Splice Provides Editorial, Color & VFX For Amy Lee’s “Speak To Me” Music Video For “Voice From The Stone”

    The creative team at Splice combined forces with Evanescence’s Amy Lee for her latest music video, “Speak To Me,” the original song written for the “Voice From The Stone” feature film soundtrack. The music video pays homage to the film’s tonality and mood by taking us on an intimate journey around an Italian castle rich with character, eclectic architecture and stunning landscapes.

    Shot on the same location as the film in the Italian region of Tuscany, the piece bodes as an enchanting reflection of the landscapes, ethereal ambience and melancholic themes observed throughout Director Eric D. Howell’s “Voice From The Stone,” starring Emilia Clarke. Splice also contributed editorial, color and VFX to Howell’s film, which was released in select theaters and through streaming services this spring.

    “Having a single stop post house that not only handled the film and its promotional needs, but also collaborated wonderfully on the music video was just another example of the professionalism and expertise Splice brought to this project,” concludes Producer Dean Zanuck.

    Led by Editor Clayton Condit, the creative team at Splice collaborated very closely with Director Eric D. Howell and Producer Dean Zanuck on their new film “Voice From the Stone,” starring Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones,” “Terminator Genisys”) and Marton Csokas (“The Lord of the Rings”). Shot on location in Italy, the film made its premiere at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival in April, and is currently in theatrical release at the Laemmle Santa Monica and in 10 cities across the U.S. with international distribution to follow. “Voice From the Stone” is also available on cable and digital demand. www.voicefromthestone.com

    Under the guidance of Editor Clayton Condit, the Splice team contributed editorial, visual effects and color for “Voice From the Stone.” Condit traveled on-set to Italy for the film’s production, as well as the recording of the film’s score in London, and final mix at George Lucas’ Skywalker Sound in Northern California. Director Eric Howell has a long-standing collaboration with Condit and Splice, having completed editorial and postproduction on many of his commercial projects over the years. “Splice was the perfect collaborative partner for the postproduction on this film,” says Howell. “This is a very nuanced film, and so there needed to be a delicate balance on what story we were telling. It is a very intelligent film, so as we took in feedback about what was working and wasn’t, it was great that we had such a close collaboration with everyone at Splice. It was really a family affair.”

    Splice Executive Producer Drew Sondeland oversaw the management of the postproduction phase and all of its assets for "Voice From the Stone.” “This was a wonderful film to manage,” he notes. “The passion and dedication of the film’s Director (Eric Howell) and Producer (Dean Zanuck) provided amazing inspiration for us. When the first frames started coming in from the set in Italy, we knew we had a beautiful film and amazing opportunity on our hands. The schedule was such that we needed to role out all departments in Splice simultaneously. The energy that gets created when we’ve got everyone focused on one vision is always a blast.”
