The Sound of Roma with Skip Lievsay

November 20, 2018 9:27pm

Academy Award-winning sound supervisor and re-recording mixer Skip Lievsay talks about the extraordinary sound work behind director Alfonso Cuarón’s epic black-and-white film about his own childhood in 1970s Mexico City. Skip talks about how not having a musical score keeps the audience guessing what will happen next, why it was important to Cuarón to have the dialog emanate not just from the screen channels but from all around the audience, the stunning five-day loop group recording session with 350 actors, and the 70-day final mix of the film.
