"The curse and the aim of doing great sound
is not being noticed."

The best sound becomes a seamless part of the film, allowing the audience to get swept away by the movie experience. Many films featuring sound by LCR have gone on to great success. Please check here for updates on what some of our films are up to after they've left the studio.

Orchids: My Intersex Adventure awarded Best Short at mujerDoc 2013

Documentary filmmaker, Phoebe Hart, comes clean on her journey of self-discovery to embrace her future and reconcile the past shame and family secrecy surrounding her intersex condition.

Phoebe’s film Orchids: My Intersex Adventure recently won the hotly contested Best Short award at the mujerDoc documentary film festival in Spain. The latest award joins a veritable swathe of awards the film had earned since it’s release in 2012. Check out Orchids on facebook to learn more.

At LCR we love working on great documentaries, and Orchids is no exception. It’s fantastic to see the film receiving such accolades.
