e2 creates new sounds for Godzilla while paying homage to original
Burbank — Imagine the challenge of having to re-create the sound of the iconic Godzilla from the movies of the ‘50s? Along with the work involved, there is also the responsibility of staying true to the original and allowing all of those who already have an idea in their mind of what Godzilla sounds like to stay in the moment.
e2’s Erik Aadahl and Ethan Van der Ryn, the sound design team for the upcoming
Godzilla reboot, didn’t take the Godzilla legacy for granted and instead paid homage to the original.
The pair, whose company is based on the Warner Bros.’ lot, have sound design and sound editing credits on the
Transformers and Kung Fu Panda films, the Lord of the Rings
series and The Tree of Life. Together they have seven Oscar nominations and two wins.

Godzilla films. The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn and Sally Hawkins.
