The Oft Overlooked Art of Sound Design


The crack of Indy’s whip, the bleep-blips of R2-D2, and the asthmatic breathing of Darth Vader. These unique and memorable sound effects are all products of an often overlooked art form – the art of sound design. A Sound Designer’s duties include creating, editing and applying sound effects and all non-compositional elements of a film, video game, theater performance, recording or television program in what amounts to a very daunting job.

Thank you so much for this!
I'm currently in school for sound design, so it's definitely not overlooked by me. :)

Currently, there's really only two of us here. I'm focusing on sound design in theatre.

Ever since ROBOCOP won for best sound editing I have paid attention to the art of Sound Design and i work in the field now. (If you play an Alesis Keyboard i programmed the presets.)

My vote for this year are City of Ember a great sci-fi movie with a message and great sound editing. WALL-E had fantastic sound FX and i agree with its nomination.
