audioEngine’s Kelly Harnett Mixes Up a ‘Perfect First Date’ for Bowlmor Lanes

Utter euphoria is the only way to describe the first date flirtations and cosmic ambiance that is

Bowl the Perfect First Date

for Bowlmor Lanes, directed by Rabbit’s Marc R. Wilkins, mixed by audioEngine’s Kelly Harnett and edited by The Whitehouse’s Trish Fuller. Edited in reverse and set to an electric trance-inducing track, the spot is a wordless narration of a young couple’s first date at the famed bowling chain.

“The reverse technique was basically in the entire spot, so I wanted to utilize it effectively and keep it fresh in each scene,” noted audioEngine Mixer Kelly Harnett. “I chose to highlight certain moments that enhanced the story by bringing out the uniquely textured reversed sounds, while still letting the music track drive the spot.”
