Mix Presents Sound for Film: And the Award Goes To…
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD
The fourth installment of director George Miller’s Mad Max franchise hit theaters with a boom last spring, in a full immersive Dolby Atmos experience. Superivising sound editor Mark Mangini, who keynoted the Mix Sound for Film event at Sony Pictures, explained how the art of sound design contributed to crucial scenes, amid the vehicles, weapons and battle scenes. Nonstop action didn’t get in the way of a dynamic and tasteful selection of futuristic, yet organic sounds. The vehicles alone seem worthy of a nomination, as their movement and tone drives the track. Note the integration of Junkie XL’s music track as it weaves in and out of the effects track and buttresses the action.
