Updated: Dec 12, 2023

In a groundbreaking move, using tools from immersive entertainment technology giants Dolby and Apple, HINDSIGHT: THE DAY BEFORE is redefining the audio drama landscape. This premium audio series from MHP and Radio Pictures has leveraged the powerful combination of Dolby Atmos and Apple's Spatial Audio features to deliver an unprecedented auditory experience that is leaving audiences in awe.

From the creative minds of creator and executive producer Mark Haynes and writer-director-producer Kely Lyons at MHP to the technical wizardry of sound designer Ted Bonnitt at Radio Pictures, HINDSIGHT: THE DAY BEFORE is a testament to the limitless possibilities of audio storytelling in the digital age.

EP Haynes shared his excitement about the project, saying, "We wanted to push the boundaries of what audio drama could be. Dolby Atmos and Apple's Spatial Audio features allowed us to create a virtual three-dimensional soundscape that immerses listeners in a way they've never experienced before. It's like being inside the story itself."

Writer/director Lyons echoed this sentiment, adding, "When you're writing and directing for a medium like this, you're not just telling a story; you're crafting a three dimensional world of sound. With Dolby Atmos and Apple's Spatial Audio, we are able to transport our audience into the heart of the narrative, making every moment feel real and immediate."

Technical director, editor and sound designer Ted Bonnitt, whose expertise played a pivotal role in bringing HINDSIGHT: THE DAY BEFORE to life, emphasized the importance of cutting-edge technology. "Our goal was to use technology to make the listener forget they're listening to a podcast. With Dolby Atmos, we can precisely place sounds all around the listener, creating a truly 360-degree audio experience. Apple's Spatial Audio complemented this by adapting the sound to the listener's own movements, making it uniquely immersive."

Combining these two innovative technologies allows HINDSIGHT: THE DAY BEFORE to create an auditory experience that transcends traditional audio dramas. Listeners are transported into a world where every footstep, whisper and sigh is palpable, creating an unparalleled level of engagement.

This collaboration between MHP, Radio Picture, Dolby Atmos, and Apple's Spatial Audio is not just about pushing the envelope; it's about reinventing how we consume audio content. HINDSIGHT: THE DAY BEFORE is poised to become a game-changer in the realm of premium audio series, setting a new standard for immersive storytelling.

As the audio entertainment industry continues to evolve, HINDSIGHT: THE DAY BEFORE demonstrates that the fusion of cutting-edge technology and creative vision can lead to groundbreaking experiences that captivate and delight audiences worldwide. Brace yourselves for the next era in audio storytelling, where Dolby Atmos and Apple's Spatial Audio are at the forefront of innovation.
