SoundWorks Collection: The Sound and Music of War Horse from Michael Coleman on Vimeo.

Set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War, Steven Spielberg’s epic adventure War Horse tells the story of the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him.

When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets – British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter – before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.

In the exclusive SoundWorks Collection video we talk with sound designer and re-recording mixer Gary Rydstrom and composer John Williams.
