And how do you rate Dolby Atmos on the sound side?
Dolby Atmos creates an incredibly real and immersive sound environment. In the first scene, for example, where we are in an attic and Brad Dourif´s character tells a story while a thunderstorm is approaching outside. For this we processed about 100 individual rain and dripping noises, which are only fully effective in Dolby Atmos. Everywhere the rain sounds a little different. It feels three-dimensional, as if you were directly on site. Very impressive! When editing sound, we found that it is always worth mixing in Dolby Atmos for all cinema evaluations. Even the automatically generated derivatives, such as 7.1 or 5.1, sound significantly better than a native mix in these formats. We were really stunned at how the three-dimensionality of Dolby Atmos was transferred to the derivative versions.
"Wildling" was released in New York and Los Angeles cinemas on April 13 and has since been available on Apple´s iTunes, Amazon, and other video-on-demand platforms. Where can the film be seen elsewhere?
Our US distributor IFC Films has since "WIldling" launched in other American cities too. Since April 20, Warner Bros. has been showing the film on more than 100 screens in Great Britain. Our world distributor IM Global sold "WIldling" to numerous other territories, where it is also evaluated. The German start date will be announced shortly.
