I recently sat down with Will Files as a follow up to our short interview at NAB last April, where we discussed his use of Pro Tools | HDX, the new Pro Tools | S6 console and his approach on the summer theatrical release of Dawn of the Planet of The Apes (one of the top 10 grossing films of 2014 at $ 708M worldwide). Will is a very talented sound supervisor and re-recording mixer who is working on the biggest Hollywood films (including the new up coming and highly anticipated Star Wars episode) and he leverages modern mixing technologies to the max.
In this interview—we dive a bit deeper into his approach on the movie and dig into some of the technical aspects of pre-dubbing in Pro Tools, his use of plug-ins and how he approached mixing for Dolby Atmos.
