This year, Skywalker Sound’s Gary Rydstrom, joined the roster at VIEW - Italy’s leading computer graphics symposium - for the first time. His feature presentation is called UNEXPECTED SOUNDS.
Sound brings movies to life — especially animated movies — and the nitty gritty of how and why sound design works can be quite unexpected. Drawing from Pixar films, and live-action films such as “T2,” “Jurassic Park” and “War Horse,” participants will hear many examples of raw sound effects recordings, designed sounds, and mixes to illustrate how sound helps tell stories.
Master Class with Gary Rydstrom | Friday, Oct. 19, 10:00 – 12:15, 17:30 - 18.30
“I invite people who work in sound and filmmakers interested in creatively using sound to bring questions and short examples of their work to this master class. We will explore how sound is being used and how it can be better used to tell stories.”
Rydstrom, along with Directors Eric Darnell, Dan Attias, and Genndy Tartakovsk, cinematographer Tristan Oliver, and professor Chris Perry will join in the roundtable discussion “The future of cinema.” He will also take part in the workshop “Designing for a new world”, in which participants and conference leaders will think and work together to design the year 2025. What will everyday life feel like? What technologies will we use? What will movies, television, and games evolve into?
