Master Classes are in-depth, interactive learning experiences focused on craft and career-building and led by renowned industry experts. Topics include fiction and documentary filmmaking, TV writing and production, and navigating and succeeding in the entertainment industry.


Music and sound design are two of the most powerful tools for filmmakers to tell their stories. In this Master Class centered around The Daniels’ independent hit, Everything Everywhere All At Once, we explore how these elements work together to communicate tone and emotion and build a unique and fantastical world.


Join Glenn Kiser, Director of the Dolby Institute, and accomplished composer, Peter Golub, who will moderate a conversation with Everything Everywhere All At Once directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, re-recording mixer and supervising sound editor, Brent Kiser, sound designer and sound effects editor, Andrew Twite, and Ryan Lott, Rafiq Bhatia and Ian Chang, the three members of the band, Son Lux, who composed the original, spellbinding score. In this live, interactive session, they'll discuss the process by which composers and sound designers can build the world with the filmmaker and be an essential part of shaping a film’s story.
