The Soundworks Collection puts the faces and voices behind the sound up front. The track becomes that much more interesting and informative when you can see and hear the people that put the pieces together, which makes going to the movies that much more fun!

I’ve been mixing films for over 25 years and I’m constantly asked by friends and family as well as people in the industry what it is we do in Sound. When I saw The Soundworks Collection’s first profile I went WOW finally someone shedding some light on our wonderful world of Motion Picture Sound.

There are so many misperceptions about sound for film. SoundWorks Collection helps de-mystify the art, and show how pros in the trenches are really doing it. An incredible resource. I’m shocked there was nothing like it until now.

The Soundworks Collection video series are wonderfully produced, high quality profiles of sound editorial and mixing work 'behind the camera'. It’s a collaborative rescource which provides a view of the people and techniques they use that is not usually presented. The collection provides information to others OUTSIDE the sound community as well, which broadens the audience, and the appeal.

The SoundWorks collection is a great reminder for all of us in the sound community of just how lucky we are: to be doing work that we are passionate about, having a ball doing it and getting paid for it. If I didn’t know better I’d think that we must be breaking the law.

Sound Designer

As a feature film sound designer, I’m often asked if I can watch a movie without being constantly aware of the sound work. But the truth is that well crafted sound should pull the audience deep into the story and emotion of the film, but without calling undue attention to itself. From the biggest explosion to the smallest breath, if the sound is working well, then the audience will believe and they will be 'there'.
