"Southpaw": Sound Artists from Sony Pictures Post Production
One of Hollywood’s most gifted action directors, Antoine Fuqua explores the rarified violence of the boxing ring in his latest film Southpaw, released this month by The Weinstein Company. The film traces the rise, fall and redemptive resurrection of Billy Hope (Jake Gyllenhaal), a talented but troubled fighter who grew up an orphan in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen. A boxer himself since his youth in Pittsburgh, Fuqua delivers fight sequences that are both brutal and thrilling. He places the audience directly inside the ring—and sometimes inside Hope’s head—allowing them to experience the action from the perspective of the fighters themselves.
