Sanford Berman

Sound Designer. Collaborations with directors include Bruce Beresford, Harold Ramis, Jonathan Kaplan, Rob Reiner, William Friedkin, Jim Abrams, Oliver Stone and Jean-Jaques Annoud. An advocate of the use of sound as art-direction, he is well-known for lush and moody atmospheres as well as his more visceral types of ‘whiz-bang’ theatrical effects. He co-developed the standard 6-track digital sound format with Douglas Trumbull in the late seventies. He was honored with the Golden Reel Awards for Oliver and Company and Aladdin and received the British Academy Award for his work on JFK.
