Behind The Scene : WHIPLASH with Sound Mixer Tom Curley CAS: Interview by: Kim Kylland

We were thrilled to meet up with Academy Award Winning Sound Mixer Tom Curley, CAS to breakdown some scenes from the film that supercharged his career : 2014’s “Whiplash”. A film that began as a low budget indie project, “Whiplash” was shot in just 19 days. Helmed by then unknown writer/director Damien Chazelle, the film went on to gross $49 million against its original budget of $3 million and swept the 87th Annual Academy Awards, winning awards for : Best Supporting Actor, Best Film Editing, and Best Sound Mixing, as well as nominations in the categories of Best Picture, and Best Adapted Screenplay. The score also received a Grammy nomination in 2015.
Join us, as we go Behind the Scene on one of the most exciting films of the last decade! Massive, heartfelt thanks to Trew Audio in Burbank, LA for letting us film this one at their space!
During this time of massive slow down around the world, we are very grateful for the sound community. We see the many ways you are all keeping busy, keeping motivated, and keeping connected, and it’s a great inspiration to us!
Thank you for watching our series, for sharing, for commenting. Stay safe, stay strong, and be nice to one another.
