August 32nd on earth

Done back-to-back in 1998 with 2 Secondes, these two films were my first as official sound designer.

32 août sur terre was pretty straight forward in terms of action, but the mood, the edges, the jumpcuts, the contrasts, the loneliness, the lack of communication between the characters, the silence, the emptiness, this was my sound design inspiration.

Having barely any music left plenty of room for ambiences.  Ambiences are very powerfull to transcend the mood, the way the characters feel inside.

Sharing a mix with Hans Peter Strobl, Roger Frappier and Denis Villeneuve was a great learning experience.
