Meet : N. Harikumar

Winner of National & State awards for Best Sound Recording & Design

    • When I specialized Sound Engineering at Adayar Film Institute, I was not merely studying to become a sound recordist; my focus always was on total filmmaking. (We were trained in all departments of filmmaking.) Today when I take up the sound design job for a film, I take time to understand the film in its totality and never look at my work as putting together bits and pieces of sound and music.
