Guest column: Josh Allamon (Reservoir)

Posted March 19, 2017, 8:49 a.m.

Its 7:55 on a Monday morning. I’m sipping a cup of hot water and Folgers coffee crystals as I stare at the French press I'm always forgetting to buy coffee for. I’ve just returned from a trip out west to visit family and the jet lag is lingering. I’ve been thinking a lot about that trip. What I’d hoped to get out of it. What it did for me. How changing your setting never really changes much of anything. Life has been different these past several months. Its nothing tangible that has seemed to change, rather the way that it all seems to be whirling around in my head. From growing debt and finding ...

BJ (Ancient Shores) on The Conversation

Posted Feb. 17, 2013, 4:34 p.m.
Beyond Casual Observation

The Conversation is a film that uses sound to drive the story. Walter Murch handled mixing duties and Art Rochester worked as the sound engineer. Each were early in their careers, having about 10 years of film experience between them. Their work complemented the score composed by David Shire and helps the audience connect with the characters. The audio works as a pulse for the film, escalating individual moments and giving life to the action. While it is a film with clear, discernable characters, the use of audio from the production side gives the audience a stronger feel for the ...
