Sony Pictures Post weaves web of Spidey sound
- CULVER CITY, Calif.
Postproduction sound for this summer’s blockbuster hit from Columbia Pictures, in association with Marvel Studios, Spider-Man: Far From Home, was completed by Sony Pictures Post Production Services. Supervising sound editor and sound designer Steven Ticknor, re-recording mixer and supervising sound editor and sound designer Tony Lamberti and re-recording mixer Kevin O’Connell led a team of veteran sound artists in delivering dynamic soundscapes to match the film’s full throttle action, superhero gadgetry and larger-than-life characters, the latter including a quartet of extra-dimensional creatures with colossal powers known as the Elemental Creatures.
Some of the team’s best sound work was applied to the Elemental Creatures. Each of four creatures required a unique set of signature sounds related to its connection to fire, water, earth and wind.
Final mixing was completed in the Cary Grant Theater on the Sony Pictures Studios lot in Culver City, Calif., with O’Connell and Lamberti working natively in Dolby Atmos. Spider-Man: Far From Home was the first film mixed in the Grant Theater following its recent upgrade to support immersive sound.
