Sound Designer and Supervisor Jonah Guelzo who has worked on films like Divergent, RoboCop, Furious 7) has produced an interesting Behind-The-Scenes interview series with Filmmaking Industry Professionals, covering all aspects of Filmmaking from sound, to picture and editing.
In this first of eight episodes, Jonah speaks with seasoned SFX Recordist, Charlie Campagna (Iron Man 3, Spectre, The Revenant) about his passion for recording sound effects, and supplying sound editors and designers the crucial sounds they need to bring life to the big screen.
Charlie Campagna is a highly respected sound effects recordist and won Best Sound Editing - Direct to Video - Animation for Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast in the Golden Reels Awards 2016. Other films he has worked on include The Space Between Us (sound effects editor), Star Trek Beyond (sound fx recordist and librarian), Warcraft: The Beginning (sound effects recordist) and The Finest Hours (sound effects recordist).
Mark Mangini, MPSE, who has worked with Campagna for more than 20 years says...
Charlie is an amazing field recordist and expert on microphones and recording technology. Sound editorial grinds to a halt when the sound library is not useable. Charlie understands the exigencies of how to ‘describe’ a sound so that it can be found in a database query, which is no small task.
