MPSE and American Cinematheque Present Big Movie SoundBig Movie Sound Effects: Behind the Scenes and Out of the Speakers (July 02, 2004)
Los Angeles movie-goers will have an unusual treat this summer! On one night, in the heart of Hollywood, the Motion Picture Sound Editors and American Cinematheque will co-present "Big Movie Sound Effects: Behind the Scenes and Out of the Speakers."
Here's your chance to see -- and hear -- how those cool sounds for big science fiction movies are made. Dane A. Davis, MPSE, and Gary Rydstrom, MPSE, will present excerpts from their Oscar and Golden Reel Award-winning work as supervising sound editors/designers on THE MATRIX and JURASSIC PARK . In addition to discussing the dramatic purpose and the processes they used to create the unique aural effects, our guests will also play sequences from both films with the sound effects only in order to give a clear and rare demonstration of the craft of motion picture sound.
So come and give a listen to what remains in these classic movie soundtracks after the dialogue and music are removed. Experience the rippling waves from slowed-down bullets, the roar of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, and every little detail that gets lost in the final mix; as well as the stories behind them.
"Big Movie Sound Effects: Behind the Scenes and Out of the Speakers" will be presented in the Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre in the Egyptian Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 14 . The theater is located at 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, California.
