Ethan Van der Ryn and Erik Aadahl, the sound editors of Paramount’s 2018 super-hit movie ‘A Quiet Place‘, are confirmed to be working on the sound editing of the upcoming movie Transformers: Bumblebee.
The editors mentioned this fact during an interview with Shoot:
“Van der Ryn and Aadahl are currently working on Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, a Christmas season release being directed by Travis Knight who made an auspicious helming debut with Kubo And The Two Strings.”
The two collaborated for the first time on Transformers 2007, which received an Academy Award nomination for Best Achievement in Sound Editing. Van der Ryn and Aadahl kept on collaborating after that, eventually making their bond official by co-founding E² Sound.
Prior to working on A Quiet Place, their talent was utilized for Transformers: The Last Knight. When Erik Aadahl recorded a temporary voice for Bumblebee (“I-I am Bumblebee, your oldest friend. Optimus, I would lay down my life for you.”), the director Michael Bay and the producers decided to keep Mr. Aadahl’s voice for the finalized cut.
