In movies and television, special effects aren’t limited to the visual – there’s the audio wizardry behind the scenes, too.
And Matt Hall, a 2003 Madison County High School graduate, is living and working in Los Angeles as a sound engineer, creating such effects for television.
In fact, he’s already got an Emmy award in hand.
Hall was part of an engineering team that won an Emmy this year for “Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing” for their work on Nickelodeon’s “Penguins from Madagascar,” a spinoff of the Madagascar movies.
“I’m in charge of everything you hear other than the voices and the music,” said Hall, the son of Tommy and Pam Hall. “Everything else comes through me and the other guys I work with. Anything from the penguin’s footsteps, the car explosions, the gunshots — if there are gunshots in a Nickelodeon cartoon — any of those weird sounds, I put those in there.”
