Soundelux in Hollywood, Calif., announces that Supervising Sound Editor Mark Stoeckinger recently completed work on Unstoppable, the new film from 20th Century Fox and director Tony Scott that opens worldwide this week. The facility says that Stoeckinger, a two-time Academy Award nominee, and his crew went to extraordinary lengths to create realistic sound elements for Scott’s thrilling story of a massive, out of control freight train, including traveling to points across the Southwestern U.S. to capture authentic railroad sounds.
“Tony Scott has created an amazing, dynamic, dramatic film,” says Stoeckinger, “and he makes exceptional use of sound to support and enhance the story. The whole film has a visceral edge. It was important that we do everything we could to accentuate that.”
