Red Obsession

Soundfirm have recently completed the full picture and sound post production on Warwick Ross’s “Red Obsession” for local and offshore release.

The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and was the subject of a special Gala Evening at the Sydney Film Festival in June.  The film was conformed and graded in our Mistika Suite in Sydney, and the final mix was completed in Melbourne.

The legendary Bordeaux region, ‘the best plot of land in the world’, has been producing valued wine for centuries. The region’s fortunes, long exposed to the vagaries of climate, are now swayed by market forces. In 2010, when a vintage year was on the cards, the global financial crisis ensured that Western pockets were empty, and cashed-up Chinese buyers set the price. This shift, fuelled by the East’s obsession with these illustrious vineyards, created a perfect wine storm; co-director and vigneron Warwick Ross documented the upheaval.

Narrated by Russell Crowe, Red Obsession is an expertly told, delectable tale of a much-coveted global commodity in times of change.
