Hear the Science behind the sound in this Gravity featurette
Over the weekend, many of you went out and saw Alfonso Cuarón's GRAVITY. The overwhelming amount of good reviews for the film were all over the internet. Many of them were short like, "Gravity was amazing. Now excuse me while I decompress for a couple of hours…" Cuarón spent longer than he originally intended to making this film. It completely worked in his favor since every moment in the film seems authentic.
One aspect that deserves praise has to be the sound design. Films over the years that have dealt with space did not seem to care as much for the minor details of how the atmosphere would effect sound. Soundworks Collection has put together a featurette which explores the science of sound in the film with director Cuarón and Re-recording mixer Skip Lievsay. It's around 9 and a half minutes, and well worth your time if you enjoyed the movie.
