We’ve finally been able to confirm a new date for our postponed Designing Sound Discussion Group to talk about the documentary, “Scouts Honor: Inside a Marching Brotherhood.” As previously announced, we’ll speaking with Director Mac Smith and Co-Producer John “JT” Torrijos. In a new development, Gary Rizzo, re-recording mixer on the film, will be joining us for the discussion as well. It should be a fun conversation, and will provide some interesting perspectives on sound for documentaries. The conversation will take place on Sunday, May 3rd, at 8PM U.S. Eastern time.
From the original announcement…
Scouts Honor is a unique documentary in a couple of ways. First off, it’s follows the Madison Scouts, a drum and bugle corps out of Madison, Wisconsin, on their 2012 tour. The other thing that makes it unique is that this is the first film for both Smith and Torrijos in these roles…who both have day jobs at Skywalker Sound. We’ll be talking with Smith and Torrijos about the film, their experiences taking on a different role in film-making, and the methods used to sonically capture some spectacular recordings of live performances. [ed. I’ve heard them…in theater…and they are IMPRESSIVE!]
As usual, this will be hosted via Google Hangouts and will have time for Q&A at the end of the discussion. Come here Sunday, the 3rd, to watch the live-stream and find the direct link to the Google Hangout to join the conversation a little more directly. See you all on the 3rd!
