Update from Peter Ramsey, director of Rise of the Guardians:
Just a quick update for you from the very last stage of our production process - the final mix! This is where the dialogue, music and sound effects are assembled on the sound mixing stage. We’re working feverishly with our Sound Designer Richard King, Mixer Andy Nelson and our composer Alexandre Desplat to find the perfect balance of sound and music to bring the many worlds of the movie to life. It’s an amazing process that creates atmosphere and emotion, using every sound you hear in the movie, from the rumble of North’s sleigh to the sparkling sounds of the Sandman’s Dreamsand to the gentle rush of wind as Jack Frost flies past. And wait until you hear our amazing music…talk about magic. We’re very close to being done…it’s a bittersweet time but an exciting time — I cant wait to see what you all think of what we’ve done! Come on, November 21st!!
Looks like North is pointing at the soundboard:
" Hey, you! Move those dials up a bit!"
The movie IS complete, and will premiere at the Mill Valley film festival tomorrow:
It’s European premiere will be in Rome, during their international film festival (November 9 to 17)
