When creating sound design, how do you put the story first in the choices that you make?
That's the question I took away from the excellent sound design breakdown in today's issue of Cut/daily, featuring the wisdom of Sound Designer Gary Rydstrom.
His credits include: Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Jurassic Park, Quiz Show, Toy Story, Mission: Impossible, Titanic, Saving Private Ryan, Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Minority Report, Super 8, Jurassic World, Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens and tons and tons of other huge movies!
Gary has been nominated 15 times for an Oscar, winning 7. He's also been nominated for 8 BAFTA's, winning 2.
So he knows what he's talking about!
