SSVFX

My talented colleagues Screenscene VFX have put together a new showreel of their impressive work:

Darklight Programme

After a successful Fundit campaign, Dublin's Darklight festival has just launched its exciting programme for 2014.

Toward An Open-Standard Surround-Sound Format

The Motion Picture Editor's Guild has a detailed article about the Digital Cinema Initiative's proposal for an open-standard surround-sound format for cinema (via @HDSurround). I'm interested to see where Atmos and Auro 3D will take cinema; would love to see/hear a non-blockbuster mixed in either of these formats...

Under The Skin

Screen Daily has a great article about the long gestation of Jonathan Glazer's 'Under The Skin'. You can stream Mica Levi's beautiful score for the film on Pitchfork Advance.

Noah

The Hollywood Reporter has an insightful interview with Darren Aronofsky about the difficult process (particularly in post production) of bringing his epic 'Noah' to audiences. There is also a good piece about the film's sound design and mix. Looking forward to seeing and hearing it!

Zidane

Sound Designer Peter Albrechtsen (@lydrummet) has written an article for dox about the sound of 'Zidane, A 21st Century Portrait'. In it, he talks to Sound Re-recording Mixer, Tom Johnson, who mixed the film at Ardmore Sound. It's an incredible sounding film, not quite like any other; it's filmed so uniquely and takes you on a really unusual journey, definitely worth your time! Here's the trailer:
