Where does a film’s score end and sound design begin? A new partnership between the Sundance Institute and Skywalker Sound will seek to bring these two components of the film soundtrack closer together, with the aim of fostering a more integrated dialogue between filmmakers, sound designers and score composers.
Composers Lab, Sundance’s annual mentoring scheme for aspiring film composers, will relocate to the Skywalker Sound complex in Marin County, California. Academy Award-winning sound designer Randy Thom, Director of Sound at Skywalker Sound, is enthusiastic about the partnership, and that emerging film composers and sound designers will have the opportunity to communicate and collaborate more openly.
