Check out Behind-the-Scenes Interviews with Academy Award Nominees for Sound & Music

Our interest in sound and audio design for film stems from the amazing curriculum of the Digital Media program at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in which students learn various aspects of post-production filmmaking.

So naturally we were pleasantly surprised (and geeking out a little) over the amazing interviews that SoundWorks Collection has published featuring most of the Academy Award-nominated digital media professionals behind leading films like “Argo” and “Skyfall.”

The sound and music for film is such an important aspect of filmmaking to help the visuals come to life, and watching interviews by SoundWorks Collection gives you a whole new appreciation for the art of sound and audio design.
