      How They Made ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’

      April 13, 2018, 8:59 am
      Michael Benson subtitles his behind-the-scenes account of 2001: “Stanley Kubrick, Arthur C. Clarke, and the Making of a Masterpiece.” Anniversaries have become moments for sanctioned reflection, and this moment, in particular, has given many a reason to make pilgrimage again to the church of Kubrick and all his symmetrical lines. Benson, who used to make documentaries about struggling Eastern European artists but has spent much of the past few decades evangelizing space exploration, turns to the extended production schedule of Kubrick’s biggest movie to find meaning—and there’s a lot of ground to cover. Kubrick originally pitched the film to MGM to be completed and ready for release by the holiday season of 1966. Production would eventually stretch to four years, and Benson finds figments of genius throughout. But the strangest thing about 2001 was that it happened at all: Kubrick’s decision to turn to science fiction was canny—a raging fad in the lead up to the Moon landings, 2001’s extended production schedule also coincided with the first episode of Star Trek— but also enigmatic. The movie’s tone of intense, awe-driven sincerity appears nowhere else in any of his completed movies that followed and would be found, instead, in the even more profitable spectacles of his followers: Spielberg, Lucas, etc.

      SOUND

      Best Film Scores of the 21st Century

      April 13, 2018, 5:03 am
      Many components are used to determine the quality of a film; the screenplay tells the story, the cinematography paints the picture and the editing ties everything together. However, what elevates the film is the musical score. The musical score provides film with an essence, allowing the movie to tell its story in its own unique way.

      6 Tense, Quiet Moments in Film

      April 13, 2018, 5:03 am
      Silence is unnerving, unnatural, and uncomfortable, which means that it’s the perfect tool for a filmmaker to build atmosphere. Whenever a film becomes suspiciously quiet, the viewer immediately knows that something frightening is about to happen. What will it be–a ghost, a loud noise, or even… nothing? This is especially useful for the horror film–the jump scare soon became the trademark of the genre.

      SOUND

      Want More tracks? Sound Devices has you covered.

      April 12, 2018, 12:38 pm
      Sound Devices gave us the inside scoop on its newest sound device, the MixPre-10T and the newest software update to the MixPre series. The MixPre-10T is the 12-track audio recorder in the MixPre series. It contains 10 inputs, including 8 very high-quality mic preamps, and 2-line input preamps. It has 4 outputs, 2 balanced and 2 unbalanced. The biggest upgrade of the 10T to previous models is an extremely accurate timecode generator and reader. It can produce all the modes of timecode and can hand all the frame rates you would expect and can power down and still hold timecode. It saves to SSD but can also autosave to a thumb drive. The 10T can be powered by AA batteries, AC-to-DC power supply (Hirose 4-pin DC plug), or Sony L series batteries. This recorder is available now for $1,799.
