From the schvmmm of a lightsaber to the swell of an orchestral score, the power of sound lies at the heart of cinema. This is a history lesson that will exhilarate even the most seasoned cinephile. 

Director Midge Costin (a feature film sound editor for over 25 years) and her crew of predominantly female film practitioners interpose interviews with an extraordinary line-up of filmmakers (among them David Lynch, George Lucas) with dissected scenes from across the history of cinema, showing the viewer just how crucial, and yet virtually ‘invisible’ the craft of sound design is to the movies we love.

Far from being of interest only to a niche audience of soundies and composers, Making Waves is essential viewing for anyone interested in how the magic of film casts its spell, frequently imperceptible, swelling around audiences' emotions into crescendo peaks.

“Revels in the holistic, aesthetic side of technology: not just buttons and dials and gizmos, but technology as an expression of something human.”
