On February 11 we hosted our “Everything Sound” event at the prestigious Michael Rowan Sound Mixing Theatre at Adelaide Studios. The event was a chance for members of the ASE and the Australian Screen Sound Guild (ASSG) to interact and learn from each other.

Following welcome drinks, we entered the theatre where Carlos Manrique Clavijo (ASSG SA rep) gave us a presentation which included a demonstration of sound design from '8 1/2' (1963). He also showed us an action sequence from 'Terminator 2' – five times – with isolated sound stems. Hearing the FX, foley, ADR, atmos and music separately from a Hollywood movie was amusing and informative!

David Scarborough (ASE SA) then presented the first of many questions submitted by participants upon registration. Before long, the Q&A became a friendly and free-flowing conversation across the room between picture editors and sound recordists / engineers (emerging and experienced), touching on most of the pre-submitted topics.

The conversation covered technical software questions through to creative approaches to our respective crafts. We happily ran overtime whilst everyone seemed to enjoy the opportunity to share their techniques and propose strategies for more efficient collaborations.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening that proved to strengthen post-production networks in our state. We’ll certainly seek opportunities to collaborate with the Sound Guild in the future.

The next ASE event for SA will be casual drinks in March, date TBA.

Lastly, a big congratulations must go out to one of our new Committee Members, Geoff Lamb ASE, on gaining his accreditation last year!
