VP Production Sound-Design Studio is a team that provides services of complex sound production. We create music, sound effects and voice over records for video games, movies, trailers, advertising and other media projects.
Our key element is thoughtful approach to the project, its characters and events. With the help of sound design we help to reveal the depth of the visual project, to convey its character and atmosphere, to create mood and emotional binding for its audience.
VP Production works in lots of genres: orchestral, electronic, ambient, rock and many others.
We propose a full-cycle production of sound-effects from foley recording / synthesis to integration via Wwise / FMOD into Unreal Engine 4 / Unity3D.
Our studio is always open for clients: game producers, film directors, project and product managers and basically anyone who is looking for a great sound production.
Please, feel free to contact us and tell everything about your project!
Some words from founder:
My name is Vlad Plotnikov, I am composer, producer and founder of VP Production. I have over seven years of experience in sound-industry. My studio “VP Production” provides full-stack services: composing, creating of sound-effects, mixing, mastering, integration of audio-content and future maintenance of your project. We always introduce new technologies of sound creating.
But the most important thing to us is to make your project's sound powerful and unique. With our help you can be sure your game, film or advert will be even more outstanding!"
It is not an easy task to create music for the game, film or advertising. After all, you do need not just to compose or pick up a sequence of sounds. It is necessary to fully support the visual component, reveal its character and atmosphere, put the viewer or player in the desired emotional state. To ensure a full immersion a free download music is not enough – you need to create part of the story.
Sound effects are an important component of audio design of any project. They directly affect the quality of the final product: sounds make players or viewers believe in what is happening on the screen. At the same time, they are able to supplement the music-created atmosphere in the game or film even further, influence the emotions and the state of the audience. Therefore, it is necessary to take the sound design creation seriously.
Quality voice over is one of the ways to reveal more deeply the nature of the character as well as to add some charisma to him. We will help your hero speak English, Russian, Ukrainian and French. Voice over actors of the VP Production team are native speakers and have experience in voice-over of games, cartoons and commercials.
Integration of audio files into Unreal Engine 4 / Unity3D game engines via Wwise / Fmod is the last stage of the development of a sound system for a game project. However, this stage determines the value of all previous work. The competent integration of sounds and music into the game influences how qualitatively and holistically your project will sound.
You can contact us by any of the convenient ways: communication form, Skype, Telegram.
In the first letter, you need to specify all the necessary information about your project: its theme and genre, type and approximate scope of work to get done, a description of the timing and budget. It is also very important to provide a technical task – this will greatly facilitate the process of cooperation.
If you don’t know how to compose it correctly or you experience any difficulties – we will be happy to help you! Download the template and an example of the technical task for creating a sound system by clicking here.
We find a common language with any representative of the industry, whether it is a large company, an independent studio or a student project. Please feel free to submit your projects!
We have a closer look on the technical task (or we help you with its finalization); prepare possible questions and suggestions on the document; generate the first ideas for further discussion.
Together with the client we discuss primary ideas, we look for a common vision of the sound component of the project, and finally define the main concept.
At this stage, the scope of work is finally approved as well as the terms, budget of the project and the date of commencement its implementation.
After approval of all the key details of the project, the client makes an advance payment of 50% of price of the first service.
Based on the received approved information, the composer or sound designer starts to work.
It is very important for us to maximize the client's involvement in the process of creating a sound system. It is for this purpose that we regularly provide intermediate development results, as well as we expect timely and sincere feedback.
We stand for a constant, most honest dialogue between the developer and the client, and we believe that it is the key to the project success.
At this stage, as a customer you need to be particularly attentive in evaluating demos. It is important to understand that they don’t have a final sound and are just a demonstration of the progress of development. The number of free edits per audio file is five, although experience shows that usually there is no need in this many.
With the help of streaming services, such as Soundcloud and PiBox, we conduct a demonstration of all audio files created for the project. Also we make the last adjustments if necessary.
After the final approval of the project results, the client pays the remaining 50% of the previously agreed amount.
We send all the created audio files in the required formats to the client.
The client evaluates the work done: listens on how all sound files interact in the context of his project.
At this stage, you have the last opportunity to make free corrections.
The client accept the whole project or a specific task. In the latter case, the team proceeds to the next scheduled task and the cycle repeats from the moment of making an advance payment for the specific service.
“The dead month” of January is quite living for our studio.
We’re in a constant process of creating development strategies, building a better and stronger team and (obviously) making great projects!
VP Production’s CEO Vlad Plotnikov was a speaker on Games Gathering 2017 on 10 December of 2017. He was talking about how to create effective relationships between music composer/sound-designer and customer as well as about the most effective methods of successful collaboration.
Small review of Vlad’s sessions on Smart Techno 2017 & Techstars Kyiv StartupWeek in Kyiv (22-24 September 2017).
При первом же знакомстве Влад произвел впечатление хорошего специалиста. Благодаря ему мы смогли понять, как будет звучать наш проект, какое количество звуков и музыкальных треков нам необходимо. В начале Влад просто консультировал нас по проекту, после общения мы поняли, что готовы полностью отдать всю озвучку и подписали договор. В результате работа была сделана намного раньше поставленных сроков, все наши пожелания были учтены. Спасибо большое за проделанную работу.
For VP Production we set an extraordinary task - to convey the mood of each chapter of our history with the help of music. Now, while playing Look Right, many people note the atmosphere of the application and the level of involvement into storyline. And that was achieved solely with the expense of music, which varies from chapter to chapter. Also VP Production sound-designed all video materials for us and gave them maximum of volume and realism. We are pleased to continue working with guys on all current projects.
У нас было меньше месяца до релиза, и мы не были уверены, что ребята захотят взяться за проект, учитывая жесткий дедлайн и количество работы. Но напротив, нам были рады и проект взяли в работу. Подобрав референсы музыки, были разработаны короткие фоновые треки в игре, которые нацелены на то, чтобы максимально усилить ощущение дикой природы вокруг. Для еще большей передачи атмосферы были разработаны звуки для всех животных в игре. Проект был выпущен в срок и люди позитивно оценили наш общий вклад в разработку качественной музыки и звуков. WildCraft и дальше обновляется новыми фишками и животными командой Turbo Rocket Games, а VP Production успешно их озвучивает.
We ordered Sound-Design for mobile arcade racing. This work is done quickly and efficiently. In the process, Vlad gives us recommendation about technical question about sound and together we found the perfect solution for our game. I can recommend VP PRODUCTION. Thank you for your work!
Vlad is a master of his craft. His work was performed at a very high level and at the same time in a very acceptable term. Vlad has managed to catch the atmosphere of our game very clearly and to create a suitable sound design, which has not only fit perfectly into the gameplay, but also emphasized the style of Fate Hunters.
Excellent work. We ordered a musical soundtrack for the two escape-rooms "The Mousetrap", and were very pleased. Thank you.
We are the team of LightGames, we love games, we love to develop them, this is the business of our life. Our games are our offspring, and we want to make sure that they not only looked good, but also sound great. The sound is the mood, atmosphere, it's a piece of the soul. And it is for this very attitude that we turned to VP Production. Why? Because they are meticulous, responsible musical fanatics. It sounds strange, but it's an ideal combination if you need a good quality sound, made with a soul and dedication. With our cooperation, we always understand each other with a half-word. Thanks VP Production that you love your business just like we do.
I'm really happy to work with Vlad and his team (VP Production). They are really professtional and creative and come up with the best quality possible! The music that was created for our game's tralier (AlienHuman) is simply awesome and we're absolutely satisfied with the result 🙂 I will surely continue cooperation with Vlad!
Профессионал в своем деле: четкое понимание поставленных задач, глубокий анализ и проникновение в проект, выполнение в срок (часто даже значительно раньше) очерченного объема работ, умение слушать и слышать заказчика, наличие собственного взгляда и интуиции, которые значительно помогали решению вопросов.
Perfectly completed assignment in excess of the original agreement. All you could wish for such professional performers. Excellent professional work! Minimum information from our side - the maximum result from the composer. Creativity and really beautiful music. Collaboration by 110% satisfied! Thank you!
Vlad has done some sounds for our online casino games. Everything was great. Time on request reaction + Demo versions + Final updates. Good luck!
Влад - это тот человек, который знает и умеет писать атмосферную музыку. Именно поэтому мы выбрали его. Этот человек вкладывает душу в проект, а это важно.
Thank you so much! You're a professional in your sphere! You understand ours - "we want to like this, but in a different way" and immediately involved in the work. I did not believe that you have time to do everything in such a short period of time, but you're right, and everything is great !!! Your work gives us completed mood and atmosphere in our app. I will recommend only you!
We've started to work with Vlad at the time when he had in his portfolio less projects than fingers on the hands. We've taken a risk and never regretted about it. He has done all sounds for characters, weapons, abilities as well as all the music (game trailer included). He has learned Wwise like in days while working with us; we were staying nights long making all sound even better before the release... Choosing VP Production you get high-quality result in time for all kind of projects. CityBattle: Virtual Earth Developers' team.
Vlad is an excellent sound engineer. He has done a superb job on improving the soundtrack for our video game. He is responsive, cooperative, always on schedule and fun to work with. I can highly recommend him.
