Long time friends and filmmakers Jerry Harned and Lad Allen brought Mark in to write music in a style they hired him for when he was 17 years old. “King of Creation,” the newest installment of inspirational filmmaking by the duo at Illustra Media, is a modern High Definition rendition of what made both this team and Moody Institute of Science great: beautiful footage mixed with inspirational hymn arrangements atop scripture.
Narrated by William Knight, the film spans eight different subjects both visual and spiritual. Mark created diverse arrangements for the various segments from some of the most beloved hymns including “Amazing Grace,” “Be Thou My Vision” and many more. Using traditional and exotic instruments such as the uillean pipes and native American flutes, Mark pulled out all the stops in creating a score that is moving, elevating and deep. The soundtrack will be available on iTunes and Amazon.com shortly.
Mark also served as re-recording mixer for the stereo and 5.1 surround mixes. The mix, done at Michael Lehmann Boddicker’s Sol 7 Recording and Post and produced by Boddicker, was completed in 3 days, and all of the techniques and wizardry that Lewis uses when he mixes in 11.1 for DTS Headphone-X mixes were applied here.
Be sure to look for “King of Creation” on Amazon and a general announcement about the release of the inspirational film.
