The Sound of ‘Tick, Tick…BOOM!’
Lin-Manuel Miranda, in his film directorial debut, adapts the stage musical "tick, tick... BOOM!" by Jonathan Larson, the Broadway phenom behind "Rent." The film premiered at AFI Fest on November 10, 2021; and debuted on Netflix on November 19. Here, Glenn Kiser of the Dolby Institute, sits down with the director, production sound mixer Tod A. Maitland, CAS, and supervising sound editor/re-recording mixer Paul Hsu to discuss the unique challenges this production faced — from filming during the Covid-19 pandemic to integrating sound and music for the big and small screen.
