Hero Elementary Is Here to Save the Day!
We are big believers in teamwork. It is a value that we at Cerebral Lounge strive to put at the core of everything we do. So, we were incredibly excited when our good friend, Marisa Nalevanko of PBS KIDS asked us to collaborate with her on the launch of their new multi-platform animated series, Hero Elementary!
Hero Elementary is an incredible school where superhero kids learn how to master their super powers in a supportive environment. They are taught to work together to help those in need and to also use the “SUPER POWERS OF SCIENCE” to solve problems.
Editor JP Hertel cut together a series of character teasers, series sells and additional video assets to introduce the audience to these amazing superheroes in training. Producer, Olya Dougherty and Assistant Editor, Caitlyn Green provided support along the way. Archie Moore, from our sister company Clean Cuts, handled the sound design and mix.
We are incredibly proud to help launch a series that celebrates teamwork, diversity, empathy and scientific observation and we hope it encourages kids to want to help the world around them.

Cerebral Lounge Celebrates the District!
Here at Cerebral Lounge, we love DC – half smokes, museums, championships, mmm…. it’s a good time to be in the district. So, when Destination DC brought us back to follow up our work on their 2016 summer anthem spots, we strapped on our ice skates, and prepared to showcase a weekend in Washington’s winter wonderland.
Owen Lang directed the action, packed everyone into a couple of vans and took our cast and crew on a carefully and cleverly orchestrated whirlwind tour. Over a span of two days we shot 20 locations featuring the fun, food and culture DC has to offer, even when the temperature is low. We watched pandas goofing off at the zoo! We went ice skating by the mall! We warmed our toes in the Botanic Garden! We ate too much, drank too much and were very, very merry.
JP Hertel, our multi-talented editor, immersed himself in the footage, collaborated with our clients at Destination DC and created a series of spots highlighting the best ways to spend a winter weekend within the beltway. Colorist Rob Brown put the finishing touches on all the spots and mix was handled by our sister company, Clean Cuts.
From planning to producing, we always have fun showcasing what DC has to offer. Click below to see how the final spots turned out.
Clean Cuts is proud to have provided audio post services for MotorTrend’s new series “Fastest Cars in the Dirty South.”
Produced by Flying Scoop M&E, this series dives into the exciting world of grudge racing, a hot rod racing sport for big cash and even bigger engines.
Our engineers Jonathan Miller, Archie Moore and resident motorhead Andrew Eppig spearheaded the final mixes often getting help with sound design, dialogue and music editing, backgrounds, and noise reduction from the rest of the team.
Keeping the sounds authentic throughout the series was important, so having Andrew on our team helped ensure that every engine note, tire screech, and gear shift was on point.
Collaboration with Flying Scoop M&E couldn’t have been easier. They set up offline suites in our Silver Spring office, where Cerebral Lounge’s Rob Brown was on hand for color correction.
Be sure to check out the exciting and gritty world of grudge racer Eric Malone, his partner Brant Arnold, and their Team 256 on demand through MotorTrend’s website or mobile app. The series will also be airing on MotorTrend’s cable network in November.
