Sundance Institue
} 9:00 am

Sound and music are essential elements of storytelling and creating movie magic, whether you are making a low-budget indie film or a studio tentpole. When you find the right composer and sound design team, this collaboration is transformative in achieving your vision and inspiring the experience of your audience.


Join Glenn Kiser, Director of the Dolby Institute, for a conversation with director and Sundance alum Nia DaCosta (Candyman), Academy Award-nominated Composer Laura Karpman (American Fiction), and Supervising Sound Editor Katy Wood (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) as they discuss creating the thrilling soundscape of The Marvels, highlighting specific scenes from the film. In this online event, we will talk about how the collaboration remains the same and how the work evolves as you move from indie film to studio job.
