121 - Daniels and the Sound of Everything Everywhere All at Once

Sound + Image Lab: The Dolby Institute Podcast

19-04-2022 • 1 hora 13 minutos

Part one (of two) of our exclusive, in-person interview with the filmmakers of this mind-blowing new film, now playing in cinemas.  We are joined by the directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (known collectively as "Daniels"), as well as the film's sound designer and sound effects editor, Andrew Twite, and the re-recording mixer and sound supervisor, Brent Kiser. If you haven't seen "Everything Everywhere All at Once" yet, it is an incredible example of genre-bending experimentation taken to the absolute extreme. And the directors worked closely with the sound team, in order to craft one of the biggest independent action films in recent memory. "We knew we wanted to create something that somehow bridged the gap between big blockbuster action films and really intimate risk-taking indie films. And we wanted to find a way to do both at the same time. To carve out space for independent films in theaters, because that's something that's slowly being carved out more for these big, big IP blockbuster films. And we wanted to create a family drama that could basically stand up against those films. So we knew we wanted to make it really entertaining, but also we wanted to give ourselves a challenge of creating a multiverse film — that actually stared at infinity and actually went all the way to its logical, terrifying conclusion — and yet still pulled you back from the brink of meaninglessness and gave you a warm hug by the end." — Daniel Kwan, co-director, co-writer, and co-producer, "Everything Everywhere All at Once" To see just how the filmmakers pulled off that incredible challenge, https://tickets.everythingeverywhereallatonce.movie/ (be sure to check out "Everything Everywhere All at Once" at a cinema near you, now playing in Dolby Atmos®, where available.) https://a24films.com/films/everything-everywhere-all-at-once (Many thanks to our friends at A24 for helping us pull this conversation together! ) Remember: This is only PART ONE of our conversation with the filmmakers of "Everything Everywhere All at Once."
