Sponge Bob will be making his film debut on November 19. Avril Lavigne has recorded the movie’s theme song. The album, scheduled for release on November 9, will also feature music from The Flaming Lips, Wilco, The Shins, Ween and Motorhead.
Jeff Hutchins has been the driving force for the sound design work of Sponge Bob. He has received 12 award nominations including an Emmy award and four Golden Reel Awards for his work on the Nikelodeon show Sponge Bob Square Pants.
Jeff and his team create somewhere between 50 and 100 new sound effects per episode on the TV show. Jeff did the sound design and edits for the 30 million dollar Sponge Bob Square Pants film.
I make these observations because my seven year old boy will insist on taking me to this movie. I will have an interest in the presentation of the audio material although I won’t have the same level of interest in Sponge Bob.
