Claes Nystrom: Knows his db's

“Films are 60% audio and 40% picture”
-Stanley Kubrick

Claes Nystrom is giving a workshop on sound for film here at CDIABU.

What are the differences between the Sound Editor and the Sound Mixer in a movie?
How can I improve my storytelling through sound?

Technological advancements in film and film sound mean:
Crews are shrinking
Roles are expanding
Competence is increasing and spreading
Workflow linearity is constantly changing, and becoming more efficient.
Might one person one day handle all post production tasks single-handedly?

All the more reason to understand as much as possible from pre to post, is what I’m thinking.

“We don’t mix for total reality, we mix for hyper-reality” Claes Nystrom

It’s going to be an exciting two days.

Stay tuned!
