The Rise of Sound Design In The Mainstream Media

As the people that love sound, we don’t only surround ourselves in the sonic worlds of our day to day work schedules we go much deeper than that to another level. By listening to excellent podcasts like Tonebenders, watching videos about the enormous workload of what a feature film takes and a few secrets of sound design on Soundworks Collection, or reading interesting insightful articles like Designing Sound’s Sunday Sound Thought.

There’s been recently the increase of public videos about sound design that is reaching a major audience. It feels like the sound design itself may be becoming exposed to the public, but how will this affect different mediums like film and games and us as sound designers?

Here’s VICE recent video and article about the behind the scenes of sound design to get gruesome gory sounds from fruits.
