This is a short film I helped produce at Central Michigan University. I assisted as a grip and some gaffing work during the filming, but ultimately I was responsible for the sound design of the second half of the film; the alien side. I used Pro Tools HD to manipulate sound effects and some Foley sounds to line up with the actions portrayed on the screen. I hope you enjoy.

Deputy Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Yaşar Güler replies that Fidan’s projected actions are “a direct cause of war…what you’re going to do is a direct cause of war”.

He asked for people to be spared further suffering, and urged all parties in the conflict to allow humanitarian aid to get through.

“Prince of peace, in every place turn hearts aside from violence and inspire them to lay down arms and undertake the path of dialogue,” he said.

Cumberbatch ignores the criticisms of the script laid out by Assange. Specifically, he avoids addressing whether the script was changed at all from the version Assange had, and what his contribution, if any, was to making script changes. This is dancing around the substance and pushing a lot of PR styled flak in support of the film (hired gun style).

Letter

“The Fifth Estate is a powerful, if dramatized, entry point for a discussion about this extraordinary lurch forward in our society.”

Delusions of grandeur?  An “entry point?”  So people have no idea what Wikileaks is and need his movie to get up to speeed?
