Slumdog Millionaire sound designer uses Blue Sky speakers
Riding the wave of the massive success from his work on 2008s international indie blockbuster, 'Slumdog Millionaire', Rseul Pookutty launched Canaries Post Sound outside of Mumbai in late 2008.
The studio's main sound design room is built around a Blue Sky 5.1 Sky System One.
"To understand how sound functions in Indian cinema, you must understand that production sound recording was virtually non-existent until 13 years ago."
"Early in my career, I realized that good soundtrack of a movie was the result of how you handle the raw material that was recorded."
"That's why we thought about having specialized post studios where we can handle the sound and production process. That's how Canaries has come into existence."
With the launch of Canaries Sound Post, Pookutty is determined to change the way production sound is traditionally handled in India.
Seeing, and hearing, a Blue Sky 5.1 Sky System One in action at Skywalker Sound, he was convinced to install a similar system into the main sound design room at Canaries, with an Audient ASP 510 surround encoder in conjunction with a Digidesign HD Pro Tools system.
"I was working at Skywalker on a sound effects session and was immediately impressed with its response and power and the way sound is being reproduced."
"I have used Dynaudio, Genelec, and HHB monitors, and no one is good over the other; certain qualities that one has, the other doesn't."
"In a film and sound design environment, working with all the music, sound effects, dialog, and background ambiences needed a certain quality in a reproduction system."
"The Blue Sky systems gave me a very wholesome listening environment and are very spot-on."
"The fact that it gives me true monitoring in a small room impresses me a lot. I'm hearing everything that Id be hearing in big room."
"I can hear the true color of my sound, which was misguided and misleading in other monitor systems. In other words, Blue Sky made something that was very intangible, tangible."
