The sound of The Creator

Director Gareth Edwards (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) discusses his approach to sound design for The Creator in a roundtable hosted by the Dolby Institute.

Edwards explains: “The whole making of a film is [a] dance. You're on a razor's edge. You go slightly too much this way, it's really obvious and cliched. You go slightly too much this way, it's up its own arse and no one understands it. And you're just trying to do that knife edge the whole time. And the way you get there is not through being really clever. To be honest, you pick a side to start on and then you go right up to the limit.”

Dolby has a storied history with cinema sound and is synonymous with the original Star Wars trilogy. As I've written previously, the company was instrumental in piquing an early interest in home cinema. I'm an advocate for Dolby Vision and Atmos content on streaming services such as Disney+.
