Alumnus Chris Woll assisting on the sound design and underscore for a new PBS documentary

Alumnus Chris Woll is presently assisting on the sound design and underscore for a new PBS documentary The Gettysburg Story along with the primary composer, Ravi Kittappa. The Gettysburg Story takes a unique look at America’s bloodiest battle by utilizing cutting edge technologies such as, stunning motion control time-lapse photography and video cameras mounted on remote controlled aerial drones. Chris has been responsible for assembling a sample library of Civil War era music played by reenactment bands on period instruments that will be used as sound sources in the underscore. In addition, Chris has been responsible for creating some of the original music for the film, particularly in the battle sequences. The Gettysburg Story will have it’s premiere on PBS in July to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War battle.
