Sound Design of Alice in Wonderland

March 15, 2010 1 comment

I’ve just watch Alice in Wonderland yesterday in 2D version. This video produced by SoundWorks Collection reveals that there are 2 different mixes, for 2D and 3D. Maybe I’ll find sometime to watch (and listen to) the 3D version.

Sound Design Book List by @timprebble

November 8, 2009 Leave a comment

Tim Prebble (@timprebble , musicofsound.co.nz) recommended books on the subject of film sound design. Thanks Tim, this is a very useful list. Though It’s not easy for me to read English book because my language skill isn’t that good, there’s no way to study sound design if I don’t read English book.

Sound Design: The Expressive Power of Music, Voice and Sound Effects in Cinema by David Sonnenschein is another book I thought it’d be included in this list. I’m reading it and will pick up the next one from Tim’s list.

Live Music : Animated Short Film

August 8, 2009 Leave a comment

I love animation. But this animated short film interests me more because it’s about music and musical instruments. Moreover, it features Steve Vai on guitar and Ann Marie Calhoun on violin. Live Music will be attached to another animated feature which I’m waiting to watch, Planet 51. Hope both of them will be available in Thailand.

Building Worlds From The Sound Up

WALL-E Special Features Animation Sound Design: Building Worlds From The Sound Up. This is the name of video clips in Youtube I’ve just watch. It’s behind-the-scene documentary from Wall-E. It reveals who Ben Burtt is, how he works, the history of sound design and many many more.

These videos make me fall deeper in passion of sound design. It’s not only to make sound that suits. But understanding everything on screen is a must. And again, there’re a lot of “The Art of Lie” showing in these videos. What those guys did at Disney almost 70 years ago still attract me today. Spending 20 minutes watching these 2 videos is worthwhile, inspired and educative.

Unfortunately, the videos can’t be embedded. Please have a look following these links.

By far, I’d say that my dream job is being a sound designer for animation, game and other visual media.

Tron : Legacy [Trailer]

Tron : Legacy

Tron : Legacy

This trailer shows up in Apple Trailer. I’ve never known it before. I download and watch this trailer because its plot is about virtual world. This must be a visual fx showcase. At the moment I see the word “VFX concept text”, the only question came up to my head is …. how should this trailer sound?

Unfortunately, this trailer on Youtube can’t be embeded. Please check it out following the links I provided below. Trust me, it’s worth to watch.

Sound of "UP"

June 2, 2009 Leave a comment

Nowadays, FilmSoundDaily.com becomes one of my favorite website to read about film sound. Their latest post is the video embeded from Michael Coleman‘s Vimeo page. As I used to write about Michael Coleman, he’s a man behind “Sound for Picture” video in Mix magazine. I saw this post in FilmSoundDaily.com a few days ago, and thought it would be soon to public on Mixonline.com. Yes, it’s now showing on Mix.

Once I watched the trailer of Up a few months ago, I said to myself (and to my girlfriend as well 🙂 ) that I’ve to watch this movie. Moreover, this behind-the-scene video which sound designer and re-recording mixer Tom Myers and re-recording mixer Michael Semanick reveal how the sound was designed make the film more interesting to me.
