MAKING WAVES reveals the hidden power of sound in cinema – and our lives. Through film clips, interviews and verité footage, the film captures the history, impact and creative process of this overlooked art form through the insights and stories of legendary directors such as George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch, Barbra Streisand, Ang Lee, Christopher Nolan, Sofia Coppola and Ryan Coogler, and the sound men and women with whom they collaborate.
Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas have both declared that “sound is 50% of the movie” with Spielberg saying “our ears lead our eyes to where the story lives.” In MAKING WAVES, we see and hear from the key players of sound design – including multi-Oscar winners Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now), Ben Burtt (Star Wars) and Gary Rydstrom (Saving Private Ryan) – who, in pursuing their art and desire to push the medium, are the very people who will go down in the history of cinema as developing sound into the immersive storytelling force it is today.
Featuring George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch, Barbra Streisand, Ang Lee, Christopher Nolan, Sofia Coppola, Ryan Coogler.
