MAKING WAVES: The Art of Cinematic Sound

Directed by veteran Hollywood sound editor Midge Costin, the film reveals the hidden power of sound in cinema, introduces us to the unsung heroes who create it, and features insights from legendary directors with whom they collaborate.

Featuring the insights and stories of iconic directors such as George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch, Barbra Streisand, Ang Lee, Sofia Coppola and Ryan Coogler, working with sound design pioneers–Walter Murch, Ben Burtt and Gary Rydstrom–and the many women and men who followed in their footsteps.

“MIDGE COSTIN’S INVESTIGATION INTO THE “HIDDEN POWER OF SOUND IN CINEMA” IS AN INSPIRING, ENTERTAINING, EPIC JOURNEY THAT REMINDS YOU WHY YOU LOVE CINEMA.”

Screen South will introduce an exciting talent development scheme offering commissioning opportunities for emerging creatives to make new artistic works in film, audio or interactive media designed for BBC platforms. New Creatives is for emerging talents aged between 16 – 30 who want to develop their original creative idea into a professional short film, audio or interactive work. After the film there will be an opportunity to ask one of the Screen South team any questions you might have about the scheme.
