The Sundance Film Festival Collab presents a free three-hour online Master Class to investigate the creative process of Music and Sound in Film.


Entitled ‘Master Class: Building your Story Soundscape with Music and Sound – Presented by the Dolby Institute’, this is an essential class for any writer, director, producer, composer, or sound artist seeking best practices and shared language to collaborate and serve the soundscape of a film.


Moderated by composer Peter Golub and Director of the Dolby Institute Glenn Kiser, topics presented will include:

  • Discussion with composer Hildur Gudnadóttir to take a deep-dive look at her process.
  • Case study presentation of “The Assistant”, with director Kitty Green, composer Tamar-kali, and sound designer & mixer Leslie Shatz.
  • How composers “read a film” and make specific choices on tone. Examples will be shown and discussed that highlight different approaches and styles.
  • The distinct worlds of sound design and music; how and when to most effectively use each tool.
