Dolby has released an exclusive Star Trek Beyond video – which features director Justin Lin, writer and actor Simon Pegg, as well as actress Zoe Saldana, who plays “Lieutenant Uhura”.
At the helm of the Enterprise this time was Justin Lin (known for his work on the Fast & Furious” series). Directing one of Hollywood’s biggest franchise films is no easy task with so many pieces that had to come together – including sound design – to make the action-packed film resonate with audiences.
“The Enterprise is more than just a ship, it’s a vessel that basically has bonded us and all of these characters for 50 years. Sonically, as we design a shot, as we design a scene, it [sound] is not just about levels and stuff. It was about feeling. It’s emotional. With Dolby, we have more tools available to us than ever. As a filmmaker, the aesthetic has evolved to be able to build these moments.” - Justin Lin, Director of Star Trek
