Soundsnap Adds New Library of Professional Sound Effects for Media and Entertainment Production

NEW YORK, N.Y.— April 4, 2011— Do you remember the sound of a bumblebee taking off and flying by on a warm summer day? Now you can hear it again and own it at Soundsnap.com. Providing media and entertainment professionals with Hollywood-quality audio for films, games and broadcast projects, Soundsnap announced today the immediate availability of its new collection of royalty-free sound effects from renowned sound editor, Coll Anderson ( Trees Lounge, The Fog of War, etc). This collection of 5,800 sound effects includes processed sound design drones, various guns, insects, Amazon ambiances, rare muscle cars,“death” cars, and extensive Foley recordings.

“Coll is one of the most sought-after sound editors in the industry,” said Soundsnap founder, Tasos Frantzolas.“He has helped to sharpen the focus and story of films with the creative use of sound. Now his compilation of rare sounds will allow our users to add gripping audio to any project.”

Anderson has been working with sound for 22 years. His work includes recording, editing, designing and mixing, and spans indie art house classics, award-winning documentaries and many studio films. His production resume includes Steve Buscemi’s acclaimed Trees Lounge, Errol Morris’ Oscar winning The Fog of War, Sundance Grand Jury Prize winners Frat House, Manda Balla, and Restropo, Universals Studio’s action classic Death Race, and the Emmy winning television drama Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.

“Sound on its own is never as interesting as sound in context,” said Anderson.“Most of what is in my library are recordings for film that were made with respect to a sound that was worth recording, that I needed, but that also could be captured in an environment that was somehow excited by the event. I hope what they say helps you create what you have to say.”
