Movie Sound Editing

Scott Hecker, supervising sound editor/sound designer with The Formosa Group, talks about his part in the process of creating movies, including what the job entails, how he got into the business, differences between the soundtracks of commercial and home releases, how movie sound has evolved, the opportunities and pitfalls of immersive audio, high volume levels, anecdotes from some of the projects he has worked on (including Batman v Superman, Man of Steel, Mad Max: Fury Road, and U2: Rattle and Hum), answers to chat-room questions, and more.

Scott, Hecker's comments about the different dynamics needed when creating a separate nearfield mix for home use elucidate something I've long thought: that the nearer you get to your sound source, The less you are able to discern fine differences in dynamics. I know that when I listen to music or movies on my home theater, I always end up picking out parts of the music I miss on headphones, regardless of how loud I'm listening to either. I've always felt it's easier to hear the intricacies of music when I'm in a larger room where the sound has the opportunity to fill the space.
