Miss Nikki and The Tiger Girls

Soundfirm have completed the full post production on the award winning documentary, “Miss Nikki and The Tiger Girls” for Iris Pictures.

Our Sydney facility provided a ‘full ‘package’ of creative and delivery services, from a dry-hire cutting room for the offline Editor, Rochelle Oshlack, right through to the final picture grade (Trish Cahill on DaVinci Resolve), online edit, sound edit, ADR/Voice-over, and full sound Mix for theatrical and Broadcast release.

Director, Juliet Lamont said,  “It was a gift to have our sound and picture done at Soundfirm. It left space for all of our creative energy to go where it was needed most – transforming our small quiet film into a big loud sexy one!”

Developed by Iris Pictures and award-winning Writer/Director Juliet Lamont, Miss Nikki and the Tiger Girls follows the fortunes of the six young women who are giving their all to gain success on the international music scene, as members of Myanmar’s first all-girl band.  The documentary was funded under Screen Australia’s Special Documentary program. It was one of a handful of projects selected in the 2011 ITVS funding round, out of 500 applications from 109 countries. It also won a spot at the prestigious Hot Docs pitching forum in Canada in May 2011.

At the heart of the film is dynamic Australian singer and dancer Nicole May who has ambitions to empower the girls in the band – giving them freedom of expression, self-belief and encouraging them to write original material. A big undertaking in a music industry dominated by Western ‘copy tracks.’  Juliet Lamont’s feature documentary The Snowman (2010) won the Australian Documentary Prize at the 57th Sydney Film Festival and has recently been nominated for an AFI Award for Best Feature Documentary.
