Video of the Day: The Sound of Interstellar

interstellar-01 interstellar-02 interstellar-03

I finally saw Interstellar last night, and it is definitely an uneven film but I enjoyed it. I think if certain sequences were left out I would have liked it even more, but Christopher Nolan seems unable to resist turning a cerebral film into more of a standard popcorn flick.

The score and sound design really stood out to me. When I came home I happened to get an email from Michael Coleman sharing a video of Sound Designer Richard King on creating the sound for Interstellar. Don’t watch this if you haven’t seen the film yet, but if you have this is cool to see.

The Importance of a Klout Score?

The Importance of a Klout Score?
I found out yesterday that Booooooom has a Klout score of 80. I didn’t know much about the site so I dug around and discovered that it’s quite a high score. It might even be higher if I could link it to our Tumblr which has 20,000+ followers, but it isn’t my primary Tumblr account so I can’t.

Anyways, I’m interested to know if you guys care at all about a rating system like this. How much weight does this actually carry? Do agencies actually hire people based on these scores? How much work do you photographers get through social media channels? If there are people out there working at agencies or creatives involved with social media, I’d love to hear your opinions!
