Without a good sound mix horror, more than any other genre, would be far less effective. Imagine movies like The Blair Witch Project or Paranormal Activity without their children laughing or things going bump in the night. A good mix makes all the difference, I tell ya! It seems only natural that a horror movie based upon time spent mixing various sounds would come out sooner or later.
According to Screen Daily multi award-winning director Peter Strickland is plotting a new Italy-set horror film. The project, called Berberian Sound Studio, is being made through the UK’s Illuminations Films and digital film studio Warp X. Illuminations’ Keith Griffiths and Simon Field, along with Peter Carlton and Robin Gutch from Warp, are producing the film. The Italian and English-language film is due to shoot later this year.
The film will follow an English sound engineer who goes to work in an Italian sound studio that handles many of the country’s nastiest horror flicks.
