In the past I have featured posts about the composer of the music from Inception‘s trailer and a profile of a foley artist. Both these posts came from videos made by the SoundWorks Collection. Now they are at it again, with a video about the sound design of Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
There is a lot of Michael Bay love in the beginning of this video, but once you get past that, it is really fascinating to see the unique ways some of the sounds were created for the movie.
Do yourself a favor and check it out.
I recently saw Transformers: Dark of the Moon. It is not a good movie. It is better than Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, but it is hard to see how it could have been worse than that. However, the movie is a technical marvel and the sound design has a lot to do with that. So bravo to this sound team.
