'Wonderful' Chinese New Year arrives early at Audio Post

The Tradition

Going to the movies has become a Chinese New Year tradition in Singapore. At Mediacorp Audio Post, our yearly tradition is to create the music and sound effects for Jack Neo's Chinese New Year movie. This year, we are working on his latest project, Wonderful! Liang Xi Mei  (旺得福! 梁细妹); to usher in the Year of the Dog with much joy, laughter and prosperity.

The movie is centered on Jack Neo's famous cross-dressing character, Liang Xi Mei, from the late 90s TV show 'Comedy Night'. Liang Xi Mei is a well-loved housewife known for her trademark flowery blouse, her unabashed wit and her unforgettable catchphrase, "真的是伤脑筋啊!”. The movie will also feature other comedic veterans like Mark Lee, Henry Thia and Wang Lei.

EARLY CHINESE NEW YEAR FOR AUDIO POST

Music and Sound Effect Director Mo Ju Li began her sound design preparation for the movie as early as November. She and her team conceptualised the audio aesthetic for the film after several meetings with director Jack Neo.

The Audio Post team created a script breakdown of the shows and sourced for sound design tracks and sound effects, as well as recorded live sound for specific scenes and music scoring. As a result, celebrating Chinese New Year came early for the Sound Designers, even before the Christmas and New Year festivities!

Mediacorp Audio Post is committed to infuse the festive elements into the film and delivered the movie in surround 7.1 and Auro 3D sound format 11.1.
