Oliver Holms desire to make a short film on Sound Design was borne from the affliction he felt every time he came across tiresome and incredible work that was always invisible to the public.

O sound designer, ou “foley artist”, tem a responsabilidade de fazer pelos seus ouvidos o que os cineastas fazem pelos seus olhos. O trabalho é minucioso e tem a responsabilidade de harmonizar cada cena com a sensação desejada a ser passada para o espectador.

This profession gained more visibility at the end of the 70s, when the Hollywood movie industry cast aside the traditional production methods and took a head first dive into new forms of design. This period became known as the New Hollywood, and the main players were a generation of directors whom are still present on the big screens: Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and George Lucas, amongst other movie giants. Some scholars, such as sound engineer Francisco Leal, consider Star Wars (George Lucas) and Apocalypse Now (Francis Coppola) to be the movies which represented this turning point in the history of movie-making; when sound became valued as a fundamental part in which to tell a story.
