Films are widely regarded as a visual medium, but sound has played an important part in every feature released since the birth of the talkies. This cool new video demonstrates the work and artistry that goes into sound design, using this summer’s How to Train Your Dragon 2 as an example.
This 10-minute mini documentary provides a fascinating look into one of the areas of filmmaking that most people know little about. Being a sound designer is a bit of a thankless job when it comes to mainstream-audience recognition, but you’re likely to have a newfound appreciation for the work of these creative types after watching the clip.
If you find yourself hankering for more of How to Train Your Dragon 2’s audio excellence in the wake of watching this video, you can still catch the film in theaters. The Dreamworks production has proven to be one of the pleasant surprises of this blockbuster season, and is well on the way to breaking the $250 million mark in worldwide ticket sales.
