Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound

USA 2019 | 94 minutes | English | Hebrew subtitles

In thinking about films, it appears we focus primarily on their visual dimension, aesthetic vision, cinematography, acting performances, or artistic design. This documentary strives to treat the soundtrack’s role in forming our cinematic experience with the respect it deserves. This is a journey through the development of cinematic sound, which follows some of the most influential sound designers of all times, such as Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now), Ben Burtt (Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Arc), and Gary Rydstrom (Saving Private Ryan). Director Midge Costin cites films that constituted milestones and features interviews with prominent directors, such as George Lucas, Steve Spielberg, David Lynch, Barbra Streisand, Sofia Coppola, and Christopher Nolan.
