In this exclusive SoundWorks Collection video we talk with Tabitha Jackson, Director of the Sundance Institute's Documentary Film Program, Randy Thom, Director of Sound Design at Skywalker Sound and Composer and Sundance Creative Advisors Todd Boekelheide and Miriam Cutler.
This will be the third year the Music and Sound Design Labs take place at the Skywalker Ranch in northern California. The Labs are part of 24 residential labs the Institute hosts annually to discover and foster the talent of emerging independent artists in film, theatre, new media and episodic content.
The Music and Sound Design Labs provide a space for composers, directors and sound designers to collaborate on the process of designing a soundtrack for film. Fellows participate in workshops and creative exercises under the guidance of leading film composers and film music professionals acting as Creative Advisors.The Music and Sound Design Lab for narrative feature films is a joint initiative of the Institute’s Film Music Program and Feature Film Program, and the Music and Sound Design Lab for documentaries is a joint initiative of the Film Music Program and Documentary Film Program.
