The Sonic Secrets That Bring Pixar’s Latest Movie To Life

For a totally animated flick, it’s the sound masters behind the scenes who are really responsible for bringing a movie to life — every squeal, sigh and clunk is key. Thanks to the people over at SoundWorks, we get to see (and hear) the steps it took to give a literal voice to Pixar’s newest film, Monsters University.

Sound designer Tom Myers lets us in on the more conceptual secrets of cinema sound, but he also breaks down an entire scene into the individual parts that make it whole. Each specific voice and noise sounds almost naked when you hear it on its own, so it’s truly incredible to see the final effect when Myers brings the whole piece together. You’ll never listen to an animated film the same way again. [Soundworks Collection]
