Extra, extra, the MPSE sound show is back! As hinted a few weeks earlier, here in Los Angeles on Nov. 5th, 2007, a sound event featuring editorial crew members (and maybe other craftsmen) of “Transformers” is being put on by the Motion Picture Sound Editors. Though my favorite transformer Soundwave didn’t make it into the film, I am excited that the MPSE is putting on what seems to be a very awesome night! Please note that this press release is very “hot off the presses”, so there is not going to be any info on either the American Cinematheque or MPSE websites as of yet. You heard it, er, read it here first!
UPDATE: You can purchase tickets online HERE
The MPSE Sound Show returns to Hollywood this Fall
to reveal the sound effects of this summer’s
Join award winning supervising sound editor Ethan Van der Ryn (King
Kong; the Lord of the Rings trilogy) and sound designer
Erik Aadahl(Superman Returns; I, Robot) for an exploration of the
sonic world of the action-packed Science Fiction film directed by Michael Bay.
Clips from the movie will be screened with special “pre-dub” soundtracks
showing off the variety of sounds created for the motion picture.
As an extra attraction, all audio will be played through a
state-of-the-art audio system developed by Meyer Sound Laboratories so
that you can hear every subtle and bone-crushing sound effect.
By the end of the evening you will experience how the craft of movie
making is “more than meets the eye.”

Avenue. General admission is $10. Seniors and students with valid ID
