“If you want to do sound design for movies, then you should watch a lot of movies and really listen to the movies. Find out what your favorite film sounds like and how they are using sounds and approaching sounds. Look at details like how the dialogue sounds and when they use silence and when they use noise. Basically, what kind of sounds they use to get the optimal reaction. For me, my advice is to listen to the world, listen to the movies, listen to a lot of sounds. There is so much inspiration to get.”
Sound Designer Peter Albrechtsen talks about his practice, on the importance of collaboration, similarities between documentary and fiction film practices and taking inspiration from the world around us.
