The Evolving World of Film Sound

[Feature Article] The world of film sound postproduction is changing fast. No longer is the process sequential and clear-cut (some might say it never was, of course). Now the sound track of a film can be seen to emerge from the melting pot of the production process, being created almost concurrently with the picture edit. Whereas in former days a finished (“locked off”) picture cut might be handed over to the sound department to work on, it can now be changed right up until the last moment because picture editing is undertaken digitally using a computer. This new-found freedom is fully exploited by visual-effects departments and picture editors, leaving the sound editor to follow along as best she can and make a convincing sound track from a picture cut that changes every day. Two papers from the 118th Convention highlight aspects of this changing world, showing how new technology has significantly changed the task facing sound editors, composers, and orchestrators.
