Crew behind the thriller will discuss creating the aesthetic of horror with light and sound.
Washington, D.C. – NAB Show New York will explore the use of sound and picture finishing to create suspense and emotional tension in feature films. The creative team behind Neon’s “She Dies Tomorrow” will participate in a panel discussion on Friday, October 23. The session will be available on NAB Show New York’s main stage channel.
The technologists behind the feature film, now available on streaming platforms, will offer insight on bridging the gap between horror and comedy by juxtaposing sound and silence with flashing colors and intense contrast in the session “How ‘She Dies Tomorrow’ Lives.” Variety’s Artisans editor Jazz Tangcay will moderate the discussion with colorist Nat Jencks, supervising sound editor Mary Ellen Porto, cinematographer Jay Keitel, and writer and director Amy Seimetz.
Produced by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), NAB Show New York will showcase advances in next-generation technology and feature conferences, workshops and exhibits focused on television, film, online video, live events, advertising, corporate A/V, production and post. The online event takes place October 19 – 29, 2020.
Called “one of the most prescient films of the decade,” “She Dies Tomorrow” employs ambient sounds to ground the surrealist storyline and changing colors and lighting to augment dramatic mood switches between scenes and characters.
