Sound in cinema important irrespective of the genre: R.S Prasanna

Chennai, June 29 (IANS) Debutant director R.S Prasanna, who traveled to Hollywood to supervise the sound mix of upcoming Tamil romantic-comedy “Kalyana Samayal Saadham” (KSS), feels sound helps in “immersing” viewers in the story irrespective of the film’s genre.

Prasanna and his team traveled to Hollywood recently for the final sound mix of KSS, which happened at Warner Brothers studio in Los Angeles.

“Cinema is an audio visual experience. Ours is feel good comedy, alright, but sound plays a huge role in immersing the audience into the world of the story,” Prasanna told IANS.

“Especially in new age comedies, and some of the best from world cinema, sound elements like room tone and ambiance plays a pivotal part adding to the comic atmosphere. A loud, creaky fan that punctuates an awkward silence between characters can by itself become a comic gig,” he added.

Kunal Rajan, who has worked on films such as “Vishwaroopam” and Hollywood films like “Blades of Glory” and “Spiderwick Chronicles”, is the sound designer of KSS.

Other Hollywood technicians, who worked on KSS, include Tom Marx, sound mixer of “Man of Steel” and Bruce Nyznik, a legendary Additional Dialogue Recording (ADR) supervisor, known for films such as “Sin City” and “Space Jam”.

A modern-day take on south Indian wedding, KSS features Prasanna Venkatesan, Lekha Washington and Delhi Ganesh in important roles.

Arun Vaidyanathan and Ananth Govind have produced film, which is getting ready for release soon.
