For the second year, the Dolby Institute and the SoundWorks Collection have collaborated to produce a series of podcast conversations with the artists nominated for Academy Awards for Best Achievement in Sound Editing and Best Achievement in Sound Mixing.
Sundance Institute and the Dolby Institute, along with the Ray and Dagmar Dolby Family Fund, announced today that Last Days in the Desert, written and directed by Rodrigo García, has been selected as the second recipient of the Dolby Family Sound Fellowship.
Glenn Kiser, its founding director, believes the Dolby Institute's mission is straightforward: "The Dolby Institute engages artists by providing education, inspiration, and support throughout the creative process.”
As part of the Tribeca Film Festival, the Dolby Institute recently brought together sound mixer Skip Lievsay and music supervisor Susan Jacobs, two award-winning filmmakers, to explore scenes from their work and to share their strategies in using sound as a storytelling tool. Glenn Kiser, an accomplished sound designer in his own right, served as moderator.
