What if the sound inspired the image?
Growls and grumbles—
In most films (aside from music videos), the sound design comes after the visuals, thus taking cue from the imagery. But sound can also be a source of inspiration. This was demonstrated in a series of short animations showed on Dhö Officiel on Facebook, entitled “Sonson”, produced each week from the beginning of summer by Nicolas Dégenétais and Simon Dronet. The premise is simple: Nicolas records a
sound that he sends to Simon, who makes an animated film based on it, without any consultation whatsoever. The result? Nothing short of brilliant.
