38 Greene Sound Designs Promos for HBO Comedy Hit

New York City-based recording studio handling mix to picture, radio advertising and original music (October 31, 2005)
38 Greene Studios, a New York City-based recording studio handling mix to picture, radio advertising and original music, and Home NYC have teamed up to produce two on-air promos for TV funnyman Ricky Gervais standout HBO comedy ?Extras. Gervais, a Golden Globe winner for his work on the BBC British comedy ?The Office, writes, directs and stars in the new series. 38 Greene engineer Adam Charity handled all mix-to-picture and sound design while Home NYC managed all graphics.

The two promos, a 2:20 version and a :55 version, feature clips of the show and an interview with Ricky Gervais. ?We worked with Home NYC to create promos with a very movie-like feel to them, says Charity. ?The quality of the sound projection together with the appearance of the clips make the promos look just like film trailers.

Its pretty cool. ?Extras, positioned to become the next HBO hit, has the feel of ?Curb Your Enthusiasm, with Gervais playing a true-to-life character named Andy who pursues an acting career.



Although Andy doesnt possess any real talent and spends most of his time as a background extra, he has chance encounters with A-list stars (playing themselves) on the movies he works on. Guest stars include Ben Stiller, Patrick Stewart, Samuel L. Jackson and Kate Winslet.
