StUn Blog: INSIDE ALTERED MINDS
As promised, this month’s blog comes from Matt Davies, Partner and Supervising Sound Effects Editor here at Studio Unknown.
In our November newsletter we highlighted the release of Rowish Production’s ALTERED MINDS, and as mentioned, this month our blog highlights what went into the sound this incredibly dark film.
Altered Minds is a psychological thriller exploring dark secrets of the adopted family of a retired government psychiatrist. Like most family gatherings, a bit of drama is prerequisite and expected – but throw in Tommy, their estranged horror novelist son looking for answers from repressed memories, and things descend into darkness pretty quickly.
As a Sound Designer the film contains a treasure trove of themes and opportunities to use sound as a strong storytelling device.
