If you still haven’t seen “Skyfall,” the latest James Bond film, perhaps the video above will convince you it should be on your to-do/see list. It’s about the making of the sound of “Skyfall.”The video comes courtesy of Soundworks Collection, and invites fans behind the curtain, for a closer look at how the magic of the latest 007 movie came to translate to the big screen, under the skilled direction of Sam Mendes.
As Sound Re-Recording Mixers Greg Russell and Scott Milan explain (and others too), Mendes’ idea was to immerse audiences within the world of “Skyfall” without doing it in too obvious a manner.
The experience is seamless even when scenes with different levels of action and different approaches follow each other – and the video above explains how that was made possible.
As of November 9, “Skyfall” is also running in US theaters.
