    Dražen Bošnjak Creates His Own Virtual Reality

    Composer/Inventor Tackles The Martian VR Experience
    By the time Bošnjak started work on The Martian VR Experience he
    had already established sound tech company Mach 1™. Working with Mach 1™ they designed a set of
    proprietary sound tools that allow Bošnjak to more effectively create
    and audition multidirectional, biphonic sounds in a virtual reality
    space. Read the article at MIXonlline.com

  • Variety
    “The Martian VR Experience” does convey a profound sense of presence, making you feel with convincing verisimilitude as if you’ve actually stepped into the world of “The Martian”.
    Variety 2016.
  • Vulture.
    Augmented-Reality Comedy Creative Control Is Virtually Perfect.The soundtrack, full of baroque chestnuts, adds an extra layer of irony that the movie might not need, but it creates a lovely counterpoint.

    Fox launches The Martian VR a Ridley Scott-approved VR offshoot of the space drama as a projected $5.4 billion market takes shape.

  • The Road to VR
    This is the power of VR. You can place someone inside a lovingly rendered world and just let them lose, as long as you’ve made it intuitive enough to do so.

    The Road to VR 2016.
  • CATATONIC director Guy Shelmerdine's newest unnerving work is a visual showcase that happens all inside your head (and VR headset) The convincing binaural sound by Dražen Bošnjak completes the spooky experience.
    PSFK 2015
  • "Having proven his mettle as a cinematographer, Rodrigo Prieto is turning his hand to directing. The veteran DP, who has protographed notable films like Ang Lee's 'Brokeback Mountain' and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's '21 Grams', has stepped behind the Director's Chair on 'Likeness', a short film that premeieres tonight at the Tribeca Film Festival with soundtrack by Dražen Bošnjak."
    Creativity Magazine. 2013
  • Among the other shorts I caught, noted cinematographer-turned-director Rodrigo Prieto's Likeness, a formally wondrous, psychologically haunting short featuring Elle Fanning, a lot of gorgeous models and some pretty horrifying SFX makeup work, evocatively takes you inside the head of a girl battling the demons of distorted body image and bulimia. It's hard to shake.
    Filmmaker Magazine. 2013
  • Director Johnny Hardstaff of Little Minx/RSA Films maintains a compellingly creepy vibe throughout the video. Partial credit for that is due to Fassbender's piercing blue eyes and affect-free delivery, and composer Dražen Bošnjak's music. 'I wanted to create a machine-like, repetitive, minimalist score for the beginning of the film that evoked the assembly of machines,' Bošnjak says. 'When David starts to talk directly to the viewer I transitioned into a more utopian feeling premised by delivering the perfect artificial emotion of contentment through the music.'
    Fast Company Magazine. 2013
  • Evolution (Megaplex) 'Second for second, the most cinematic excitement at Sundance.
    Los Angeles Times. 2012
  • Tell Tale: Under the imprimatur of producers Ridley and Tony Scott, the very talented Michael Cuesta ('L.I.E') has made his most accessible film to date, an intelligent creepiest that may have audiences imagining the movie playing on and on, beneath the floorboards.
    Variety. 2009
  • Tell Tale: Director Michael Cuesta (L.I.E, 12, Six Feet Under, Dexter and Holding) crafts an unsettling psychological thriller, inspired by the classic Edgar Allen Poe Horror Story. The chilling tale, is a combination of Cuesta's firm hand and intense pacing, Terry Stacey's rich and moody cinematography and Dražen Bošnjak's visceral sound design.
    Tribeca Film. 2009
  • Tell Tale: A grisly thriller with an unnerving visual scheme and an amplified sound design that communicates the depth of the horrors, bodily and psychological, visited on the protagonist. Poe, who was notoriously sadistic would have loved this.
    Critics Notebook. 2009
  • Dražen Bošnjak has dramatically asserted himself as the go-to guy for the progressive, art-minded creative. As equally versed and interested in the outer limits of digital sound manipulation as he is in classical music's archetypal patterns, Bošnjak's compositional range extends far and deep as does his credibility.
    Boards Magazine Cannes It List. 2006
  • 007's gadget man came up with ever more dazzling and ingenious inventions as the Bond franchise progressed through the years. Expect Dražen Bošnjak to make the same contributions to the art of recording audio.

  • A fully stocked minibar just inside the entrance of Drazen Bosnjak's subterranean studio is New York's Chinatown attests to the Bond-like suaveness of his operation, but what his meticulous and unconventional audio productions really provide is an essential, behind-the-scenes utility that transforms compelling moving image projects into fully realized, engrossing worlds audiences can inhabit.
