From ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ to Big Budget ‘Blue’
By Diane Gershuny
Up until about a dozen years ago, the idea and implementation of production sound recording was virtually non-existent in India. As a film school graduate from India’s Film School Institute in 1985—and with inspiration from Spielberg to Lucas—Resul Pookutty aspired to change all that. Riding the wave of the massive success from his work on 2008’s international indie blockbuster, ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ (and subsequent sound design awards including an Oscar, BAFTA, MPSE, CAS, and others), the mixer/sound designer and colleague Akhilesh Acharya launched Canaries Post Sound outside of Mumbai in late ’08. The studio’s main sound design room is built around a Blue Sky 5.1 Sky System One.
