Video of the Week: The Sound of Gravity

“Gravity” is being heralded for the technology used in its visuals, but that’s only half of it, so much of the experience was its unique sound design and surround mix. Without its amazing and unique sound, I don’t think Gravity would have been as immersive of an experience.

We’ve posted content from the Soundworks Collection before, this one is an interview with “Gravity” Director Alfonso Cuarón and genius Re-recording Mixer Skip Lievsay. Enjoy!

Video of the Week: Jurassic Park’s Spitter

dennisnedry-dilophosaurus-jurassicparkObviously my love of film equates to a love of technology, and the technological trickery behind some of motion pictures greatest illusions. It’s been twenty years since Spielberg brought to life the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, and, regardless of its age, the film still stands up to today’s standards. Little known fact, despite its title, the film only contains about 15 minutes of dinosaurs. 6 minutes are the CGI creations from Industrial Light and Magic, and 9 minutes are puppets from Stan Winston’s studio. Below is a great look into how they created the Dilophosaurus. There are spoilers, but if you haven’t seen Jurassic Park by now, well, you’re missing out.

It’s no surprise that a film like “The Avengers,” is filled with an insane amount of effects. But the amount of detail, especially in the film’s final battle scene in the streets of New York, is staggering. This great behind the scenes video from ILM shows great insight into just how much of the city was CG, and how they were able to pull it off so well.

In this video from the SoundWorks Collection, Sound Supervisor and Sound Designer Erik Aadahl discuss the sound of Director Ben Affleck’s Argo. A lot of work went into designing the sound of Tehran, Iran in 1979, and I love the detail in this video. Check it out after the jump!
