Luke MacDonald finds work as sound recordist

Luke MacDonaldThe Canadian feature film The Oxbow Cure was shown at City Cinema in October, and, if you are one of those people who stay in your seats and watch the credits roll, you might have noticed the name Luke MacDonald—credited with the sound recording for the film.

Luke is from Cymbria, PEI, now living in Toronto, and he dropped by The Buzz office recently to tell us about his work.

The job for The Oxbow Cure came about, as is often the case in the film industry, by having a friend who knows somebody. Luke’s friend Calvin Thomas got the job to co-direct and he suggested Luke to the film’s producer. Luke did have some experience to draw upon, having studied film recording at Nova Scotia Community College in Halifax. He had also recorded sound for a number of his own video projects and those of friends. He had also assisted on an earlier feature that had been shown at the Toronto International Film Festival.

But Luke admits it was a big jump to be solely responsible for all sound recorded for Oxbow. Adding to the challenge was the fact that this production required him to record every day for a month in the woods in the winter, including scenes on a frozen lake. He says that he “had his methods down” which enabled him to meet the challenges.

The crew of of fifteen stayed in a three-bedroom cottage on location for the duration of the shoot.

You may remember Luke as a student at Charlottetown Rural HS, and as a guitarist in various Island bands, including Officer Girl.

If you missed The Oxbow Cure at City Cinema, try tracking down a copy somewhere and giving it a good listen.
