Abstract

This article discusses Niall Brady and Steve Fanagan's post-production sound work on Room (Abrahamson 2015), focusing on their working methods and collaborative approach with each other, director Lenny Abrahamson and editor Nathan Nugent. The film takes a striking approach to post-production sound design, relying heavily on sound to build a credible narrative world, despite the first half of the film being set in an extremely confined and soundproofed space.
