Soundcrafter pieces together the varied sounds of Boyhood

By Jennifer Walden

A decade in dog years is said to be roughly equivalent to 70 human ones. I think that calculation holds true for technology too. Okay, maybe not to that extreme, but it does seem that way.

Richard Linklater, director of the new film Boyhood, which was shot over a 12-year period using the same cast but different tools must certainly feel that way.

The first six years of production audio were captured on now-defunct tape formats, making the audio post process dicey at times, to say the least.

Linklater is known for his dialogue-driven movies like his trilogy Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight. Also for his visually unique film Waking Life.
