"CREATIVE SOUND DESIGN ISN’T ONLY FOR LARGE HOLLYWOOD FILMS. SOUND IS ONE OF THE BEST AND MOST COST EFFECTIVE TOOL FOR ANY FILMMAKER.” - TIM NIELSEN

Tim Nielsen is a supervising sound editor and sound designer at Skywalker Sound in California and has recently been the sound designer of the highly acclaimed animation movies Finding Dory and The Little Prince. He has previously worked on movies like There Will Be Blood and The Lord of the Rings.

During the event Nielsen will present an overview of the creative possibilities with sound and how it can help to tell stories, ways to enhance films with sound and ways to use music more effectively. The event isn't geared towards only sound people but all filmmakers. Nielsen will also point out the importance of including sound early in the process, especially in the script writing stages. During the day he will show several samples from most significant projects of his career. 

Tim Nielsen was born and raised in Minnesota, and moved to Los Angeles in 1995 to study in the graduate program at USC. In a way, his career at Skwyalker Sound started in 1996 while still a student. That year he was selected as Skywalker Sound’s first official intern, spending the summer under the guidance of Gary Rydstrom. After graduating, he moved to the San Francisco area to begin work at Skywalker Sound. In 2001 he moved to New Zealand to work on the Lord of the Rings trilogy. His other films include Pirates of the Caribbean, Galaxy Quest, Hellboy, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Prince of Persia, John Carter, Maleficent and many others.
