Making Waves offers a front-row seat to a revolution in cinematic sound design. The voices of world-famous sound designers (Walter Murch, Ben Burtt, and Gary Rydstrom) and directors (David Lynch, Ryan Coogler, Sofia Coppola) guide viewers through a century of auditory innovation, peeling back the elaborate constructions behind some of film history’s most indelible scenes. For this special screening, Block Cinema welcomes Skywalker Sound designer Tom Myers, whose work on WALL•E, Up, and Toy Story 3 earned Academy Awards in Sound Mixing and Sound Editing, for an in-depth discussion.
In person: Sound designer Tom Myers and Writer/Producer Bobette Buster
