Sound is not the enemy! - -
Lee Haxall, Editor, Crazy Stupid Love, Meet The Fockers (Emmy Award Winner)
Sound is an excellent carrier of emotion. And
film is about emotion. - Gary Rydstrom, Sound Designer -
Saving Private Ryan, Jurassic Park (winner 7 Academy Awards)
I still pretend to get room tone. It's totally
cool to make all those bastards on the set hold still for a minute or so.
There‘s no reason for it, it's just our policy. - Michael “Gonzo"
Gandsey - Production Sound Recordist, The Hunted
I like off beat stuff, weird sounding films and
subtle sound tracks as compared to bombastic. - Ron Eng,
supervising sound editor - Mulholland Drive, Coraline

tell or promote the emotional content of the scene, does it support and/or
reveal the story. - Tom Johnson, re-recording mixer - Alice In
Wonderland, (winner 2 Academy Awards)
Filmmaker Survival Guide Part Two: Sound Conversations With (un)Sound People
Motion picture audio is
one of the least understood parts of filmmaking. It is often neglected by film
students and filmmakers alike. It is boring, scary, too technical and not
considered important by most filmmakers. Until they get in to the editing room
and realize that by not paying attention to audio earlier they are screwed.
There is so much false
information about film sound that most students and filmmakers are afraid to
deal with it. When they do, it is usually done incorrectly through ignorance and
at a huge financial expense.
This book is intended to
shatter the myths and mysteries around film audio and give both students and
experienced filmmakers the knowledge and tools so that their films will sound
like they have come from the Hollywood studios without huge Hollywood budgets.
For the book, I have
assembled a lineup of Film Industry Heavyweights in all areas of audio
production for film and television. This group consists of location recordists,
sound designers, picture editors, sound editors, re-recording mixers, and
This all-star cast has won
Oscars and Emmys in addition to awards from various film industries worldwide.
Interviews include, Gary
Rydstrom, Tom Johnson,
Harry B Miller III,
David A. Cohen and a host
of others discuss their methods and secrets. (Click on the names to go to

“If you read only one
book on sound, this is the one, and, after you've read it, you'll never, ever,
ever say, “We'll fix it in
post." - William M. Akers - author of Your Screenplay Sucks!
