The SoundWorks Collection talks with Sound Supervisor and Sound Designer Erik Aadahl to discuss the sound of Director Ben Affleck’s Argo.

Argo is based on the Canadian Caper that took place during the Iran hostage crisis in 1979 and 1980. The film is directed by Ben Affleck. Chris Terrio wrote the screenplay based on the 2007 Wired article “How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Tehran” by Joshuah Bearman. Producers George Clooney, Grant Heslov and David Klawans set up a project based on the article in the same year, and Affleck’s attachment to the project was announced in February 2011.
