Listen, Imagine, Create is a short documentary about sound design and explained through the words of Tim Alicino, an Italian sound engineer based in South Africa. Michelangelo Torres is an indie filmmaker based in Italy with a keen interest in short documentaries and Listen, Imagine, Create is his third mini documentary.
Produced in Rome in December 2015 with the help of Italian designer Elisabetta Alicino, this documentary focus on the art of sound design and Tim Alicino helped Michelangelo Torres explain what’s behind the creation of the right sound in records, live events or conferences.
Being an indie project, Michelangelo did the filming himself. Primarily shot with Panasonic GH4, alternating two lenses, Voigtlander Nokton 25mm f0.95 and Olympus Zuiko 12mm f2.0, and a Panasonic LX100 as B-camera for interviews headshots and tracking shots. It was then edit in Final Cut Pro and used Colorista and FilmConvert plugins to give the documentary it’s black and white look. Both plugins help creating Listen, Imagine, Create vintage look which was the color grading choice just before to start shooting.
