9. Craft Kancils [9.9 Sound Design in Film Content]
How do you make a hungry bear endearing? With sweet music of course. But what's more important?
Sound design to tell the story.
We merged real bear sounds and human voices to make him more expressive. We made growls that may be a whimper. We made the audience feel the bears hunger. As there was no voice over nor legible dialogue, the sound design of the bear in his situ was a key element to tell his story and express his thoughts and sad hungry forlorn emotions on his journey to hunt for the freshest fish.
