Join us online for our third Objectifs Film Club session and the first featuring an international guest —  filmmaker Sorayos Prapapan (Thailand) in conversation with sound designer, re-recording mixer and foley artist Tingli Lim.

Death of the Sound Man depicts two sound recordists working hard on the sound mix of a film. With his signature deadpan humour, Sorayos Prapapan draws parallels between audiences not caring about sound in film, and how people’s voices are often neglected, offering subtle commentary on Thai society and politics.

Join us for a candid conversation between Sorayos (Yossy) and Tingli, in which they will discuss artifice in sound design and foley work, how cultural context impacts their work, Yossy’s experience as a sound designer who is now also a director, what it takes to be good at their job, and much more!
