    What is the first thing that you would want to teach people about sound editing? Read and write, because that’s the basis of any narrative. And if you can’t make sense of a narrative in your own mind, you’ll find it difficult to order any other type of narrative. That’s just my opinion – I mean, in my experience there’s only one way to narrate. There are many tools – the pen, paper, microphone etc, but just one way to narrating, because it comes from you and you have your own way of narrating things. What is it? Well, I don’t know, its different, you develop it, but if you don’t use the words, if you’re not used to writing them, the ideas get stuck. It’s not that you don’t have ideas, it’s just that you don’t have the right tools to get them out. When we talk about creative people it’s not that they’re just creative, it’s that they can order their ideas, put things together so that they become something new; they are just applying an unusual mindset, but actually it’s the same mindset that we use every day. And if it’s the same language, the same mindset, why aren’t we all this creative? Well, I think it’s just the difficulty of implementing ideas, on the page and in your head – like everything in life, when we don’t use muscles they atrophy, the brain too. Ideas get stuck and they never get out. You can use all of the other tools, cinema, the camera, the lens, the sound recorder, whatever you like, but if you don’t have anything to tell, nothing much will come of it.

    A film mix can get really intense and heated. Do you find yourself in such situations and how do you calm yourself down? This would be a very relevant question for many of us! Like everything, a mix can be a very enjoyable thing and a very exhausting thing at the same moment. You would sometimes find yourself working towards the deadline not knowing if you would make it. I keep reminding myself that it would be ok and we would make the deadline without compromises. I let the adult talk to the inner child in me. This is very important. As a creative and technical person, you can undergo massive amounts of pressure. These can just be from people trying to meet deadlines or changing timeframes because of things not in our hands. It doesn’t help to be stressed. I try to breathe and calm myself in situations like this. I also call up and talk to friends that I trust and rely on for advice, or just a chat to calm down. It’s also good to be silly sometimes as that can take your mind off the load and reset it to go back to working in full capability. We all have that time, to be honest, but it’s also about how we manage it and manage it with the client. I also try to take breaks as often as I can between mixes. But that too is mood dependent. If I am in the zone, I mix as long as I can because I usually forget to take a break and I also don’t want to break my creative flow. I then end up remembering my back hurts and I need to get up and stretch or so. And remember, stretching is not breaking your knuckles!
