About Arif Chagla

Sound designer | Freelancer | India

I like getting involved with the film, getting to know exactly what is on a director’s mind and how that can be applied sonically in the best interest of the film. A film is like an empty room with blank walls. Through sound editing we can add texture. Just as paintings, curtains, mirrors and carpets do, visually. Sound mixing decides the placement and colours that these objects occupy, how they relate to one and other, do they overlap, stand out or get obscured by something bigger. We decide how each object relates to the other and whether or not it is truly needed to serve to story, create massive cinematic moments, or close measured and extremely intimate cinema experiences. My job is to get a film sounding as thought provoking and gripping as the action on screen, sometimes beyond, and sometimes understated. Whatever serves the story. Whatever ‘pops’
