"Return to the Base" Mixed in Iosono 3D Cinema Sound
Asian blockbuster movie produced in leading 3D sound technology
After Tarsem Sighn's "Immortals" and war drama "My Way", another blockbuster movie is mixed in IOSONO's 3D movie sound format. The Korean combat film "R2B: Return to the Base" features striking aerial fight action scenes putting every viewer in the center of the action - visually and acoustically.
"I experienced a world of sound that I never experienced before," says director Dong-won Kim. "It feels like the movie characters and the scenes are coming alive with the sound. I would love to have IOSONO 3D sound on my next movie again." The movie stars Korean top actor Rain and is a story about the life and love of a South Korean Air Force pilot.
The IOSONO sound mix was done by reknowned re-recording mixer Suk Won Kim at BlueCap Soundworks studios in Seoul. "I really enjoyed the mixing process, which was full of creativity and variability. The audience will really feel the air combat sounds, my favorite part is the battle in the sky of Seoul city," remarks Suk Won Kim. Olaf Stepputat, CEO of IOSONO, adds: "With cinema installations on three continents, and now the third movie mixed in IOSONO 3D sound in less than a year, we are continuously expanding our spearheading position in 3D cinema sound."
"Return to the Base" has just been released in Korea and will be heading to international cinemas within the next months, internationally released under the title "Soar into the Sun".
