The workshop is aimed to sound designer, sound engineers, musicians, composers, directors, and producers.
The participants (sound designer/sound engineers/musicians/composers) will receive an exercise (a sequence of a movie) in advance of the workshop to create their own sound design. The results will be part of the discussions at the last day of the workshop.
Randy Thom has received two Academy Awards and has been nominated fourteen times. He is an acclaimed American sound designer and Director of Sound Design at Skywalker Sound.
He has worked on many award winning films including “Star Wars Episodes V & VI”, “Temple of Doom” and the second and fourth Harry Potter films.
Thom started his career with a spontaneous walk-in on the stereo mix session of “American Graffiti". Thom introduced himself to Walter Murch, Ben Burtt and Mark berger. He simply started: “Hi. I’m Randy. I’ve been working for a radio station in Berkley and I want to work in Film Sound.“
It was at this point when Walter Murch gave Randy a chance to sit in on a few mix sessions. He would go on to work his first sound job for “Apocalypse Now”. His second sound job would prove to be a strong turn in his career, as he assisted Ben Burtt in the Sound Effects Recording for “Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back”. In February 2010, Randy Thom was honoured with the “Cinema Audio Society Career Achievement Award”. (Wikipedia)
His latest Film “Flight” directed by Robert Zemeckis, starring Denzel Washinton is just playing in cinemas world wide.
