Hitting cinemas this week is the brand new comedy Dirty Grandpa, which pits Zac Efron’s uptight lawyer Jason, against Robert De Niro’s Dick, his grandpa who forces him to take him on a road trip to Daytona Beach in Florida for spring break. Also along for the ride is Dermot Mulroney, the father caught between the two of them. This week, we caught up with Mulroney, the stars of such films as Young Guns, My Best Friend’s Wedding and The Grey, to talk about Dirty Grandpa, parenting and playing the cello.

Probably one of the more overlooked aspects of the filmmaking process is sound design, which can be a crucial element to any movie, but especially when it comes to genre projects. Sound can elevate a mood, hint at impending dangers, set the stage for the unusual and so much more.
Daily Dead recently had the opportunity to catch up with one of the busiest sound designers out there, Katie Halliday, who recently worked on The Strain, Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival, Pay the Ghost, as well as Antibirth, which is set to make its world premiere later this month at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
Check out what Halliday had to say on the inspiration to pursue a career in sound, some of the earlier projects she worked on, and her thoughts on the misconceptions of sound design.
