SoundWorks Collection:  Exclusive Video Profiles of the Sound World

In this exclusive SoundWorks Collection video we talk with Composer Lab fellow KT Tunstall, Director Labs fellow Daniel Kwan, Skywalker Sound's Re-recording mixer and Sound Designer Kent Sparling and Sundance Institute, Director of the Film Music Program, Peter Golub about the two creative organizations effort to support independent filmmakers and sound designers.

Sundance Institute and Skywalker Sound announced that the Sundance Institute Music and Sound Design Labs at Skywalker Sound will take place at Skywalker Ranch in 2013 and 2014 and also announced the artists that will participate in the 2013 Labs. This is the first time the two organizations will collaborate to support independent filmmakers and film composers and marks a significant expansion of the Institute's existing Composers Labs to include sound design.

The Institute has hosted its Composers Labs at Sundance Resort for fiction feature films since 1999 and documentaries since 2005, allowing composers and independent filmmakers to collaboratively explore the process of writing music for film. Fellows also participate in workshops and creative exercises under the guidance of leading film composers and film music professionals acting as Creative Advisors.

Keri Putnam, Executive Director of Sundance Institute, said, "Hosting the Composers Labs at Skywalker Ranch allows an expansion of the program to include sound design, giving further insight into the powerful ways that sound and music can impact independent films. We are deeply grateful to the Skywalker team for working with us to provide our Fellows with the tremendous benefit of accessing this legendary facility"

The Composers Lab for fiction feature films is a joint initiative of the Institute's Film Music Program and Feature Film Program, and the Composers Lab for documentaries is hosted by the Film Music Program and Documentary Film Program and Fund.

Peter Golub, Director of the Sundance Institute Film Music Program, said, "Skywalker Sound is a leader in the field of post-production and sound design, and their world-class facilities offer the ideal environment for our Composers Labs. Lab fellows will have access to Skywalker's sound designers and mixers for ongoing collaboration, as well as the state-of-the-art facility during their stay."
