Episode 21 features Sound Designer Nia Hansen, who has spent her career at Skywalker Sound working on many films from Pixar and Marvel, plus other franchises like Jurassic World and How to Train Your Dragon.

During the episode we cover:

  • Attending Vancouver Film School
  • Field Recording
  • Exotic Animals
  • Staying Organized
  • Differences between Marvel magic and Pixar Magic
  • Sonic Real Estate
  • Working at "The Ranch"
  • A "typical" workday
