As the Sound Designer on Gus Van Sant's film (MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO, GOOD WILL HUNTING, FINDING FORRESTER), as well as animated features, network television specials and his own features, Kelley Baker has a unique approach to the Art of Sound Design. Whether you're working with a huge budget, or a non-existent one, sound is the one area of filmmaking that always gets little attention, until the very end. "We'll fix it in the mix..." is an often heard expression, but what does that mean? As a sound designer it usually means you're in trouble. There's never enough money or time to do sound right. So what do you do? Do you mix in digital? Dolby? How many formats are there and which one is going to give you the most options? Kelley will share his insights, and show you creative solutions to many sound problems. He'll also discuss what to do when you have no budget, and how to blow a lot of money when you do have it.
