In this exclusive profile, SoundWorks Collection talks with director Francis Lawrence and Jeremy Peirson (re-recording mixer, sound designer, supervising sound editor) about the sound team’s work to create the second film in the Hunger Games franchise based on Suzanne Collins’ hit novels.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
