The film Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound proves that sound designers are also storytellers, characterising and emotionalising characters with their sounds and noises. Director Midge Costin is a sound designer herself and works as a professor of sound design at the USC School of Cinematic Art. In her film directors such as George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch or Sofia Coppola explaine the importance of sound design for her films. She also brings together sound designers Walter Murch (The Conversation, Apokalypse Now!), Alan Splet (The Elephant Man), Ben Burtt (Star Wars, ET) and Gary Rydstrom (Toy Story, Jurassic Park). MediaSoundHamburg presents the film, which had its German premiere at the Filmfest Munich 2019, exclusively on three evenings at the Studio Kino, Bernstorffstraße 93-95 in Hamburg. “This film is a must for all film and music enthusiasts, it is a 90-minute master class and matches perfectly with our International Summer Academy for Film Music, Gamemusic and Sound Design in Hamburg, especially as some of our friends and former guests such as Ben Burtt are part of it,” says MediaSoundHamburg director Achim Esser-Mamat.
