    MPSE Sound Show makes a big noise in New York City:



    Last Thursday, MPSE brought their acclaimed "Sound Show" series to Manhattan for a packed crowd at SVA's Silas Theater. With the gifted crew responsible for Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" sharing the inspiration for and process behind the film's soundscape, the audience got a seldom seen glimpse inside a completely unique collaboration. "I'm blown away at the level they're working on," sound designer Martin Biehn said over cocktails at the Paramount Pictures' sponsored after-party, "You hear a film, but when you strip away the layers and really start to understand what goes into the process - you hear it in a completely different light." Phil Stockton(Salt, The Departed), Eugene Gearty (Inside Man, Broke Back Mountain) and Tom Fleischman (Angels & Demons, Marley & Me) screened three clips in various stages of sound design, from production audio, the raw and often flawed material they're given, to the ADR and foley tracks, where voices are re-recorded and sounds re-created, to the full mix with music, effects and the final balance of the sound design process. Event co-producer Manhattan Edit Workshop also announced new training courses in Pro Tools 9, the industry standard for film sound design, coming in January 2011. MEWShop owner Josh Apter added, "My first real job in film was a location sound recordist, so I came to all this from an audio perspective. Bringing classes in sound design through Pro Tools has been a goal for years. I can hardly wait for the first class." For more information about future MPSE Sound Shows, check out www.MPSE.org.

      ‘Parasite’: Cutting the Tension of Class Divid

      December 14, 2019, 2:40 pm
      Director Bong Joon Ho looked to Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” for minor inspiration in making his breakthrough Oscar contender and genre-bending class thriller, “Parasite.” This isn’t surprising considering his meticulous rhythm and pacing throughout the voyeuristic masterpiece. “Parasite” stands out for its suspenseful, escalating tension, as the down-on-its-luck Kim family insinuates its way into the wealthy home of the Parks, only to discover they are not alone in trying to scam them for financial security, resulting in a murderous rampage at the end.

      Which Whoosh is Witch: Sound Overlap in Cinematic

      December 12, 2019, 2:06 pm
      I’m a true believer in the idea that sound design alone can turn a good movie into a spectacular one. Although it’s not always easy to single out, specific techniques in sound design bring nuance and atmosphere to a film and are absolutely crucial for tone management. In Nerdwriter’s video essay “Harry Potter: What Magic Sounds Like,” the YouTuber breaks down sound design techniques and the evolution of spellcasting sounds over the eight Harry Potter movies.
