The Sound of Story (2014)

Cinecity Film Festival 2014

5-6 December 2014

Brighton

THE SOUND OF STORY, 2014

AN EXPLORATION OF SOUND AND MUSIC IN STORYTELLING

PART OF BRIGHTON'S CINECITY FILM FESTIVAL

PRESENTED BY LIGHTHOUSE

From the pioneering work of Ben Burtt on Star Wars and Walter Murch on Apocalypse Now, to the otherworldly electronica of Under The Skin and the visceral sound design of Berberian Sound Studio, a good soundtrack enriches the cinematic experience, helping to evoke emotion, create tension and communicate what words and pictures alone cannot.



In recognition of this, Lighthouse presents The Sound of Story: two days of talks, screenings and workshops that explored the creative potential of sound in the storytelling process. The event offered filmmakers, composers and sound practitioners a chance to gain new skills and knowledge from a stellar line-up of world-class sound professionals.
