Short films don't get a lot of attention these days, but it is one of the best opportunities for filmmakers to experiment with new storytelling techniques. Recently, the Dolby Institute was invited to the Aspen Shortsfest, an Oscar-qualifying festival for short films, to run a workshop on sound design. Well, the submissions blew us away with their creativity and techniques, so we wanted to share these conversations with you. There is a lot we can learn from how these filmmakers utilized their sound design to give audiences the subjective experience of the films' protagonists.
Unfortunately, these films are not yet available to watch online, but we have clips available in the video version of this podcast, which we will encourage you to check out here:
We spoke with three filmmaking teams and here's a table of contents in case you'd like to jump around:
00:01:56 - A Broken House, Directed by Jimmy Goldblum
00:17:33 - Ligie, Directed by Aline Magrez with Sound Editor Bruno Schweisguth
00:33:32 - O Black Hole!, Directed by Renee Zhan with Sound Designer Ed Rousseau
Many thanks to Aspen Shortsfest for inviting us to the workshop and for allowing us to share these insightful interviews from these incredibly talented filmmakers. You can read more about each of the films featured in this episode on the festival's website.
