Few realize that sound is half of the cinematic experience. Building on the pioneering sight-and-sound discoveries of iconic filmmakers such as Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, and David Lynch, this documentary focuses on the first generation of recognized sound designers, who mapped films with sound before a frame was ever shot. Through interviews and clips from their iconic films, explore the collaborative relationship between sound designers, including Walter Murch, Ben Burtt, and Gary Rydstrom, and the visionary directors with whom they work. Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound reveals the latest discoveries and advances in sound technology and shows how sound transforms not only the cinematic experience, but also our lives.
