“The Calling” is comprised of rarely seen Olympic footage dating from 1936 onwards. This exhilarating, emotional film was created to explore what it “feels” like to participate in the Olympic Games. It was mixed in 10.1 surround sound for a custom built large format theatre at Olympic Spirit Toronto. Free of narration the film is driven by a dynamic score from internationally acclaimed Canadian composer Jack Lenz. Along with exotic world beat musicians, it was performed by the 75-piece Slovak Radio Symphony of Bratislava. The music was lyrically layered by the team at Sound Dogs Toronto with over 2500 individual sound effects.
