The Sound of ARGO
The SoundWorks Collection talks with Sound Supervisor and Sound Designer Erik Aadahl to discuss the sound of Director Ben Affleck's Argo (Oscar for Best Picture).
In 1979, during the Iranian Revolution, Islamic militants take over the U.S. embassy in Tehran and hold 52 Americans hostage. Six other Americans escape and hide in the Canadian ambassador's home. The Central Intelligence Agency and its specialist Tony Mendez (Affleck) put together a plan to help the six Americans escape Iran. With the cover of the 6 Americans being location finders for a movie called Argo, Tony must get the hostages to play the part of the Canadian movie makers, so they can escape Teheran.
