#121: Ines Adriana, Sound Designer & Mixer

Listen on

Episode notes

My guest this week is the incredibly talented and prolific sound designer and mixer Ines Adriana.

Ines studied for an MA in sound design at NFTS and has been credited on over 40 projects since 2020, including some incredible short films like Ruth Greenberg’s RUN, Molly Manning Walker’s, GOOD THANKS, YOU?, Theo James Krekis’ PRAM SNATCHER, Nia Childs’ HOME, as well as documentaries such as THE CATHEDRAL and SELF-PORTRAIT.

Ines’ work has screened at Sundance, SXSW, Cannes, BFI London Film Festival and Sheffield Doc/Fest. She is a Film London Lodestar 2022, a Berlinale Talent alumni and a member of the BFI NETWORK x BAFTA crew. 

We talk about how she discovered a passion for sound, finding the confidence and the skills to call herself a sound designer, her ‘fever dream’ experience studying at NFTS, how her career picked up momentum and how sound design can facilitate and augment story.

I always enjoy the craft-centred episodes because I’m such a rookie in that space and it’s such a fun opportunity to learn about a completely different area of filmmaking, so I appreciate Ines’ time and I hope you get something from our conversation.
