A Case Study by Rana Eid and Atanas Georgiev
What does atmospheric sound bring to a scene? In their talk on the feature documentary film HONEYLAND, Lebanese sound designer Rana Eid and producer and editor Atanas Georgiev will focus on their work on ambiences and atmospheres. They explore how they were creating an identity for a location, the main character, and for different situations with the help of foley, music and the process of mixing. The sound work in HONEYLAND widely defined the documentary’s point of view.
In this context they will reflect on one of the main questions: Authenticity and the specific role of sound in the matter. To what extend the sound work in documentaries has to differ from fiction?
