IF Film chatted recently with supervising sound editor and voice actor Matthew Wood about his sound design work on The Clone Wars TV series.
Talk about the process, who does what for sound?
We still divide the labor: One persona does dialogue. Another does foley, which is all the sound effects which as too specific to be found in our library, like footsteps and clothing movement and utensils and things like that. And then we have a sound effects person and a music editor. I think you have a lot more opportunities to create better sound design with the computers, ’cause you have everything data-based at your fingertips and also the manipulation of the process.
