Craig Janson and sound can be summed up in one word, "genius". In the words of Victor Kiam who recorded the line about liking the Remington shaver so much that he bought the company...

We were extremely fortunate to collaborate with Craig on our latest feature film, "Hannah & The Hasbian". Despite the incredibly fast turn around, he honestly went well and truly above and beyond to ensure that our film sounded as good as it could be. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. His inspiring work ethic, razor sharp attention to detail, and just sheer love of the whole sound design process really is something that has to be witnessed to believe. We walked out of his state-of-the-art facility with a finished film that sounds beautiful - but much more importantly, we now have a developed a close partnership and friendship that will live on for many future projects. To say that we would recommend Craig for other projects is a massive understatement. In fact, given our incredibly positive experience with this project, and the fact that Craig is one of the nicest and hardest working people in the industry, we will now go out of our way to ensure that all our friends, clients and collaborators know that if you're ever taking on a project that requires a killer soundscape, then a visit to The Magic Sound Company should definitely be the first stop!

I met Craig a year ago during a film premiere in LA which he had worked on. I was impressed with his work then, and asked if he would be interested on my project.

He showed great enthusiasm from the start, and was very open to many ideas, a relief considering the experimental nature of my film.
Despite the smaller budget, Craig and his team went above and beyond to make sure that the utmost care was taken during the development of the soundscape, even going through the trouble of recording original tracks where needed. His approach has been professional throughout, and I'm very happy with the final result-- it has far surpassed my expectations. The sound he presented to me was mind blowing, and filled with epic emotions as well as tiny whispering details. I can't thank him enough for making the whole world on screen come to life.

We had a production deadline which bordered on the ridiculous, and where it might have easy to just drop the audio post altogether, I am so glad we made the time to take it to Craig at The Magic Sound Company.
The final mix was sensational- it really lifted the content and took it to a whole new level.  Craig’s attention to detail, and ability to turn around a quality product in a tiny timeframe meant we’ll be back...for sure!

The Magic Sound Company is currently attached as Sound Design and Score Facility for Sebet Productions feature film project SIRENA.
When I first approached Craig and his team in regards to SIRENA I simply gave them an idea of the tone and atmosphere I wanted to present. I was contacted only a few weeks later with an invitation to review their progress. When I met with them I was absolutely shocked at what they had created in such a short time. The music they had scored not only perfectly captured the essence of the movie but by far exceeded all of my expectations. Their compositions are fresh and creative, are of an extremely high level of quality and are absolutely mind-blowing.
On top of all this the Imagination Sound Design team are extremely professional and friendly, making you feel like part of their family each time you call or interact with them.
I intend to continue working with The Magic Sound Company on all my future projects and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

"I want to send a big thank you to Craig Jansson and his team at Magic Sound Company Sound Design. The production that Craig and his team has done recently for a number of my companies audio and visual programs was absolutely phenomenal.
The attention to detail, creativity and tireless work of perfection that was put into my projects have over exceeded my companies loftiest expectations.
It takes a lot for me to be impressed, but in working with Craig and his team, I must say that I've been very impressed with their quality of work.
I will not hesitate to recommend Craig and his team in the future to any of my associates as well as individuals or companies who want to work with a sound design team that puts in 110% on everything project that they do.
My company has 5 more sound projects and audio programs that we are putting together in the next 6 months for our customers and there is no doubt that Craig and his team at Imagination Sound Design will be producing those projects and others in the future for us because their work is always at such a high level of quality.
Out of all the sound design companies that I've worked with in the last 10 years, Craig Jansson and Magic Sound Company Sound Design actually give a damn.
Thanks again"

Where do I begin...
Craig Jansson and his team exceeded all of my expectations professionally and personally....
Craig not only did an excellent job on the score and sound design, he went above and beyond and scored and designed our trailer (which he was not contracted to do) and did an amazing job on that!
His top notch facility can accommodate any project!
One of my most exciting days while visiting Craig in Australia was watching Craig and Karl Lewis create an original piece of the score in front of eyes!
I will always remember that...
Their work speaks for itself as evidenced in my film "The Putt Putt Syndrome". As well as the many projects they have worked on over the years....
Just listen to them on Craig's website!
On a personal level... 
Craig and his staff went above and beyond at making me feel at home in their country...
Taking me by the hand and showing me how to navigate my way around the city...
Even taking time to taxi me to and fro...
Craig picked me up at the airport and John dropped me off...
Clint and I would often sip tea and discuss the sound design in great detail....
Craig took time out of his busy schedule and gave me a tour of the city of Melbourne, he brought myself and his son Ollie to a zoo in the outback, and even took me sky diving!
I would highly recommend Craig for any sound project that you may have and I look forward to working with Craig and his team again in the near future...

I never knew Radio could sound like this! As the sound designer for my radio show for the Game Show Network Craig produced the most attention grabbing, smile inducing, "wow-how-did-he-do that?" sound I've ever heard. Every game's sound and effects, every bit of imaging, every promo was always unique and a slam dunk. He's simply the best. And to top it off, Craig is a blast to work with! I can't wait to get that chance again.

“It’s no wonder Craig has a company called Imagination.  He certainly has that.  His work on an audio level parallels that of Spielberg on a visual level.  He’s also a terrific director so he takes something good and makes it great.  Any album I ever do is with Craig who is easy to work with, efficient and knows how to make your creative dreams happen”.

Craig is one of those rare, unique, sound designer/producers that the world has been lucky to have. The first time l ever heard his radio imaging spots,  knew right then and there, that's what wanted to do. Was a life changing moment for me. I was hooked. He is also one of the most versatile producers l have ever met. From radio, to games, to soundtrack, to TV. Whatever you need sound wise, he's your man.

“Craig Jansson is a triple threat.  He gets it done right, he gets it done on time and he is a great guy.  Being in New York City, I hear the best.  Craig is on that elite list.”

When we decided to do our first media advertising for TV, Radio and Internet we had no idea how complex, time consuming and costly the process was. We had met with half a dozen sound companies that not only had no creativity but they needed us to do most if the work including chasing down musical copyright holder etc. At this point we almost gave up. This was until I found Craig Jansson of Imagination Sound Design. He explained to us that it was his job to make our job simple, he said just tell him what our concept and target audience was, send him all the video footage we had and he will get back to us shortly with a few options. Sure enough with in a week or two he put together a few of the most amazing TV and Radio ads we could have asked for. Our biggest problem was choosing the one we liked best.  Well done and Thank you!!!!

My work with Craig over the last 9 years has involved many aspects of the sound and music world.

During this time my needs have evolved considerably and I  now oversee a large and dynamic media company.

We rely heavily on Craig's sound design skills, coupled with his ability to score and produce (add other skills here if applicable). I am constantly amazed at the sounds that are produced from his studios. Craig also believes in educating colleagues and clients during the process and I have found this to be invaluable selling tool for our company.

I would not hesitate in recommending Craig's services to any company around the globe, in fact I firmly believe that you would be hard pressed to find a sound company that could produce a better sound,

Sincerely,

Anthony Sharpe

Managing Director

Real World Media Group

I first met Craig in 1997, when I was the Promo voice for the Austereo Network & he, a senior Sound Engineer at Fox FM.

What a happening fellow, writing songs & performing admirably in bands around town as a singer & guitarist, as well as holding down his day job.

We became firm friends, & later, once he had formed his own company, he arranged for me the purchase of a Mac &

Pro-tools set up from his own specialist.

As we lived in different cities, this enabled me to voice jobs from my home & send them to him via email, thus, my Home studio was born, & our working relationship was able to flourish.

So ,it is thanks to Craig’s foresight that I now make about 30% of my income from home.

He is a very efficient & reliable worker, constantly seeking new challenges, & as I’ve watched him grow into a

family man, he remains a very close friend & co-worker & deserves every success.

 

Sincerely

Jay Hackett
