Hollywood is not the end of story: Rasool Pookutty

Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 8 (UNI) The Oscar winning sound designer Rasool Pookutty along with a panel of eminent audiographers of Indian cinema on Sunday attended a seminar on ‘Aesthetics of Sound in Cinema’ organised by Kerala State Chalachitra Academy in association with the Cine Audiographers Association of Kerala and the IFFK 2019.
The seminar moderated by national award winning photographer Mr T Krishnanunni throwed light on how film sound can enhance visual quality of the film and aid story telling.
Opining that Hollywood is not the end of the story, Rasool spoke about how sound made way to the standardisation of cinema. The sound wizard looks at sound as a crucial element for the development of a close -knit aural aesthetics and prefers to keep it natural.
Mr Boby John, who is one of India’s best sync sound editors talked at length about the technicalities of sound recording and sound design. Ms Geetha Gurappa, shared her experience in working as a sound engineer for more than 150 films in both the analog and digital era. She was not hesitant to talk about how she made her mark in this male-dominated industry as a women sound engineer fighting against all odds.
Sound editor and recordist Mr Harikumar urges young aspirants to go back to their roots as Indian tradition best captures the spirit of Nadha Brahma (sound is god). He also spoke against the divisive approach in cinema and opined that only a combination of sound and visuals can evoke what neither can do alone.
