The Sound of Terminator Salvation

Supervising sound editor and designer Cameron Frankley talks about the unique work his sound crew brought to Director McG's fourth installment of the Terminator series. See the array of sounds that were recorded to bring to life the cast of robots and cyborgs set in 2018.


Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, John Connor is the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright, a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet’s operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.
