THE SOUND OF STORY 2014

PART OF BRIGHTON'S CINECITY FILM FESTIVAL


5 & 6 December 2014
BRIGHTON


AN EXPLORATION OF SOUND AND MUSIC IN STORYTELLING


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 explore the creative potential of sound in the storytelling process. The event offers filmmakers, composers and sound practitioners a chance to gain new skills and knowledge from a stellar line-up of world-class sound professionals.
