SAN RAFAEL, CA — Audio story-teller Temp Love (templove.com) is celebrating its five-year anniversary with a new home base, having recently relocated to the historic 32Ten Studios site in San Rafael. The Temp Love team is comprised of 20 audio professionals nationwide – composers, mixers, music supervisors and music legal specialists. 32Ten Studios is the birthplace of George Lucas’s Industrial Light and Magic, and the site of numerous Star Wars-related film productions.
In addition to being able to craft original scores that range from grand orchestral movements to raw, garage rock, Temp Love also owns a one-stop, easy-to-clear, production music library containing more than 2,750 tracks. To date, the company’s narrative placements within the entertainment industry have included tracks heard within the HBO series Girls, A24’s Obvious Child, the upcoming FX/Anonymous Content series Quarter Life Poetry, and the Academy Award-nominated documentary film Facing Fear. Other Temp Love entertainment clients have included CBS TV and Syfy. The company also regularly works with agency clients, such as as AKQA, Oglivy, Pereira O’Dell, and Weiden + Kennedy. Some of their direct work with corporate clients includes projects for Google, LinkedIn, Nestlé, Twitter, Old Navy and Reddit.
Christian Hanlon and John McDermott (pictured) serve as co-owners of the company and say their passion is telling stories with audio. “Whether creating a custom score, finding the perfect song, or inventing compelling and exciting sound design – our goal is to always make the story sing, while having a hell of a lot of fun doing it,” note the partners. “We also believe in ‘giving back’ to those who have helped us get to where we are today. In this regard, we regularly donate 10 percent of all of our license fees to children’s music programs located across the United States.”
