Win Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound on DVD
‘You'll likely never hear a film in the same way again after watching this thrilling celebration of the craft’
From the first words uttered in pioneering film The Jazz Singer to the early sound years of cinema including All Quiet on the Western Front, King Kong and Singing In The Rain, to groundbreaking blockbusters such as Apocalypse Now, Star Wars, Top Gun and Jurassic Park, sound and sound design are an integral part of films and film history. Now a new feature documentary Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound puts sound in the spotlight and makes a noise about the sound effects that set the heart racing.
Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound reveals the hidden power of sound in cinema and following its release in cinemas it arrives on DVD on 25 November 2019 and we have three copies up for grabs thanks to Dogwoof.
Through film clips, interviews and verité footage, the film captures the history, impact and creative process of this often overlooked art form, through the insights and stories of film legends including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch, Barbra Streisand, Ang Lee, Christopher Nolan, Sofia Coppola and Ryan Coogler and their sound design collaborators.
Coppola and Lucas have both declared that “sound is 50 per cent of the movie” with Spielberg saying “our ears lead our eyes to where the story lives.” In Making Waves, we see and hear from the key players of sound design – including multi-Oscar® winners Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now), Ben Burtt (Star Wars) and Gary Rydstrom (Saving Private Ryan) – who, in pursuing their art and desire to push the medium, are the very people who will go down in the history of cinema for developing sound into the immersive storytelling force it is today.
Lend us you ears and open your eyes for an epic journey into sound and its impact on our film experience and our lives.
