“Film is a medium in motion: one image quickly replaces the next. As a visual artist who works in film, I have slowly learnt the full potential of good sound: a coherent soundtrack binds rapidly flitting images with texture and intimate details which we recognise as if by instinct. Charis Coke, the sound designer for my most recent project, created a world of believable but artful foleys: horse hoofs hitting dirt, leather creaking, fencing epees clicking and clashing, footsteps through underbrush. Meticulously joined, frame by frame, to the picture, this sound was the emotional through-line, the guide, through the film.”
