Sound & Story with Skywalker Sound

Sound is half of every film, but its vast potential to carry a story often goes untapped. By instead taking the time to write and edit with sound in mind - from first draft to final cut - filmmakers can explore endless possibilities for creativity and engagement. One of Skywalker Sound's veteran sound designers will share techniques for taking full advantage of sound that filmmakers can apply to every kind of project.
