WILL STORKSON, “SOUND AS LEAD”
Continuing SDFF’s conversation on documentary sound, award-winning sound designer and composer William Storkson sits down with SDFF co-Director Jane Winslow to discuss sound as a character in films. Using sound, diegetic and non, to convey emotional context can help drive and shape a story as well as establish tone and characters within the narrative. William will be sharing examples from recent projects to illustrate his concepts.
For more than 21 years, William Storkson has been performing, composing, recording and engineering music, and sound design for a variety of media. In 1999, he founded AudioSFX after leaving Lucasfilm THX to create the ultimate one-stop shop for post production sound. As a composer and sound designer, Storkson approaches sound creation with a hybrid approach whether for flash animations or feature films, looking for that unique and vibrant sound design to each and every project.
Storkson’s interview is one of a six video exclusives being released from behind the SDFF paywall. These six interviews and discussions were made and released as part of SDFF 2021 and will be released monthly through the end of the year, as part of the launch of our new website and enhanced video exclusives section.
