Sound Bytes of Revenge of the Fallen

{mosimage}Here's one for those looking into working with sounds in the film industry! There's a video interview with the folks that worked on astf: Sound Re-Recording Mixer Greg Russell, Supervising Sound Editor Erik Aadahl and Supervising Sound Editor Ethan Van der Ryn. The video shows these sound guys talking about the sounds utilized in ROTF. One example cited shows how director Michael Bay isn't always a "big-boom" director: the hut scene where Sam breaks the tiny fly-robot and the following silence before the roof gets ripped apart. Also mention was recording military fire such as the M-16, and sounds of the Reedman scene that were based off of magnets.
