Lady Death
The Motion Picture by ADV Films

Set in 15th Century Sweden, Hope, the beautiful daughter of Matthias — believed to be a skilled mercenary, but who in actuality is Lucifer, the Lord of Lies — is accused of being the devil ’ s consort following a hellish incident witnessed by local villagers. Ultimately, Hope is sentenced by the town priest to be burned at the stake. Writhing in pain and unable to think clearly, she accepts Lucifer’s offer of life in Hell — presented by the malevolent Pagan — over a hideously painful death. Lucifer’s grand plan to corrupt a soul of pure innocence meets unanticipated resistance, as Hope rejects Lucifer's scheme and eventually, transformed into the powerful warrior LADY DEATH, challenges the Lord of Lies for control of Hell itself. A powerful story of innocence lost, savage betrayal and glorious rebirth.

The Motion Picture

This past year, ADV Films tapped Faulconer Productions to create the sound design for its major motion picture release, the animated feature film, LADY DEATH. Creating the ambience, sound effects, and sound design for an action packed animated feature length film is a rigorously challenging creative endeavor, more so than the sound design requirements of a live action film production. In live action films, you begin with on-camera sound sources, but in animated features, you begin with silence. A blank canvas awaits your imagination, which is great, because with a fantasy action film, you need to immerse and transport your audience into another dimension never before visited. Faulconer's inspiration was drawn from films including Gladiator, Master and Commander, and the Lord of the Rings.

From raging battles between demon armies in hell to the mystical and magical powers of Lady Death and her demon wolf companions, the sound design carries the imagination into the far away domain of her world and the challenges of her story.

Faulconer's sister company, CakeMix Recording was commissioned to provide a 5.1 surround mix for the director's cut which is tentatively scheduled for release in October 2005.
