The latest of SoundWorks’ cinema sound profiles takes a look at Rise of the Planet of the Apes:
Acting as a foundation with an origin story for a new film series, Director Rupert Wyatt takes the audience on the science fiction summer hit, Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The stunning visual effects produced by Weta Digital for the apes are complimented by the wide range of sounds recorded and edited for the film.
Leading the sound team is supervising sound editor and sound designer Chuck Michael and co-supervisor John Larsen with the talents of first assistant sound editor Smokey Cloud and sound re-recording mixers Doug Hemphill and Ron Bartlett.
The bulk of this sound profile focuses on the process of on-location sound capture for the film and then the sound manipulation necessary to make chimpanzee samples meet the requirements of the film.
