  1. Sound on. My first post... I've been searching for films that convey the life of a sound recordist, especially focused on natural environments and ambient sounds. I imagine an adventurous traveller recording mysterious sounds in obscure, silent places. 0 results. Unacceptable! The "closest" I got was Berberian Sound Studio (2012), a film I saw in an empty, silent cinema in Edinburgh in 2012 This is almost the opposite of what I am looking for, as it's based in a studio Another inspiration was Upstream Color (2013). Here there is this strange guy recording pigs and other unconventional natural sounds. He then uses the sounds in a synth instrument. I'm sure there are many films that have at least some good references to what I've mentioned, but I will let you guys come up with amazing movies that inspired you in this respect ( maybe even to become a sound designer/recordist/engineer etc.) Please focus on films expressing the art of listening/recording (natural) sounds or music. You can mention films with great sound designs, especially those using organic sounds creatively, but only if you really must :). Please contribute. I will make a list May the sound of silence enlighten us!

I'm about to embark on a loooong journey, in a van, doing exactly this (I will start with Europe). I joined this community after an extensive research regarding what equipment I need to record natural sounds, especially in quiet environments in remote places. I will also record videos on my DSLR to capture more of the beauty of our planet. I will then share my results to inspire those who need this perspective. Possibilities are endless. P.S.2 I am interested to buy an used Sound Devices recorder (any would do) at a good price...preferably in Europe, to avoid 20% custom fees. I know you have some :).

    I saw Birdman yesterday. A very challenging and fascinating movie. The sound design and soundtrack was superb. The dialogue, and there's some great dialogue, was crisp and detailed throughout. The score was brilliant. My wife and I are still talking about this movie. Check it out.
  3. Another musical movie, with Production Sound Mixer,Ronald R. Reise, "Rather than lip-synching to pre-recorded tracks, the performers all sang during filming to live behind-the-scenes musical accompaniment in the interest of maximum spontaneity and credibility" this is Clint Eastwood's first musical as a director ...note that Clint was a star in a musical film, 'Paint Your Wagon', along with Lee Marvin (and both sang in it!) Though Eastwood didn’t have the best of luck with musicals as an actor, this property ought to have been well within his directorial wheelhouse. As a helmer, he’s always had an astute ear for music quotes from Daily Variety and The Hollywood Reporter reviews.

    World War Z

    " That these zombies have particularly sensitive hearing allows Forster and his sound designers a field day with creaking doors, broken glass crunching underfoot, and in one especially tense moment, a soda can rolling across a cafeteria floor.

  5. Hello, my name is Stephen. I'm a sound guy from Chicago. I just recently moved to Los Angeles and have been looking to meet mixers and sound guys. I've been in the business for three years, have my own gear and have experience in commercials, tv, features, shorts and web videos. Would love to take about sound with people in Los Angeles area. I'm just getting my feet wet, so any suggestions or leads would be helpful, thanks so much for your time!
