Production sound mixer Guntis Sics interviewed by Pamela Willis Burden.

In this clip Guntis talks about his long association with director Baz Luhrmann, the challenge of responding to Baz’s spontaneous creative ideas, and the nickname given to Baz by the First Nations actors on Australia (2008): the Comet.

Always in high demand for his exceptional skill as a sound engineer, Guntis has worked on dozens of films.

He has forged a close association with Baz Luhrmann, winning an Academy Award nomination and a British Academy Award (BAFTA) for Best Sound on Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge! (2001).
