Shaun Farley Skywalker Sound : Sound Design for Film


“If we’re doing our job right, you don’t even notice we’ve done it.” This is how many people describe the philosophy behind editing sound for film. Dialog editing takes that sentiment to the furthest extreme possible. Because while the listener can overlook odd sounds that have been added in post, one mistake in the cutting of production dialog will immediately take the viewer out of the scene. Cutting dialog is a lot like trying to solve a puzzle. Shaun will talk about the decision making process that leads to a solution, techniques for eliminating unwanted elements, things you can do in production to save money in post, and how to prep tracks for the mix stage.


Shaun Farley is a sound designer and re-recording mixer. Since completing his Master’s degree at Emerson College in 2004. He has worked for WGBH Boston, Teleproductions International and currently works as a sound editor at Skywalker Sound. Shaun is also a contributing editor on the Designing Sound website and has presented at The Smithsonian, as well as several Audio Engineer Society conventions.
