SoundWorks Collection: The Sound of “True Grit”
“True Grit” is not your typical western movie. It is a tale about some nasty, brutish times that has been adapted by Directors Joel and Ethan Coen from the parodic western novel by Charles Portis. The sounds of the wild West include tough talking characters, vicious animals, and harsh environments that play a large role in the telling of this story. Helping craft these duties include longtime collaborators Sound Re-recording Mixer and Supervising Sound Editor Skip Lievsay, Sound Re-recording Mixer Greg Orloff and Dialogue/ADR Editor Byron Wilson. The SoundWorks Collection sat down with the trio to discuss the unique challenges and fun experiences they had on this movie. The 60-minute discussion was moderated by Bruce Carse.
