Gary Rydstrom Talks “War Horse”

New profile by SoundWorks Collection, featuring sound designer Gary Rydstrom and composer John Williams talking about the sound and music of “War Horse”.

From director Steven Spielberg comes “War Horse,” an epic adventure for audiences of all ages. Set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War, “War Horse” begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him.

When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets—British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter—before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.

In the exclusive SoundWorks Collection video we talk with Sound Designer and Re-recording Mixer Gary Rydstrom and Composer John Williams.


  1. —-Self-sensitive, over-produced,
    decades stale.

    Meanwhile, Hollywood continues to BALK and RUN from the cosmically important,
    urgantly relevant, Globalism/EUGENICS
    and RED China ‘unfriendly’

    —————–KOREAN WAR——————-

  2. Love Gary’s comment about the moment when audio and music is added combined with the visuals making it “a film.”
    I too relish in the moments during the initial screenings of your mix for the director and have them see their vision fully realized; of course you then get the many notes of corrections you have to make before the week’s end : D, which I still love.
