Does 'Flight' sound like an Oscar winner?
"Flight" is soaring at the box office, buoyed by great reviews. While much of the attention has focused on the performance of likely Best Actor contender Denzel Washington, the below-the-line elements are equally as impressive.
Helming his first live-action film since 2000's "Castaway," Oscar-winner Robert Zemeckis ("Forrest Gump") assembled a crackerjack team of tech people. Supervising the sound design and editing was two-time Oscar champ Randy Thom ("The Right Stuff," 1984; "The Incredibles," 2005). His collaborations with Zemeckis reaped him six of his 14 Oscar bids.
Below, a fascinating 13-minute featurette from the Sound Collection on this often overlooked area of filmmaking.
