The rustle of a newspaper, the sounds of the bus engine far away, the steps of the stalker in the pitch-black night. Writer/director Roxanne Benjamin used only the soundscape to make her short film Final Stop and to create an astonishingly realistic and thrilling cinematic atmosphere. Benjamin made Final Stop for Sennheiser to showcase some of the company’s latest audio technology. It was recorded in immersive 3D audio, using just a Smartphone and recording most of the audio with Sennheiser’s Ambeo Smart Headset, which was developed with A/D conversion specialist Apogee.

The movie’s sound team from Sony Pictures Post Production Services, led by supervising sound editor Steven Ticknor, supervising sound editor and re-recording mixer Kevin O’Connell, re-recording mixer Greg Orloff and sound designer Tony Lamberti, was tasked with bringing the sonic elements of Priest’s world to life.
