Stephen Hunter Flick has been supervising and designing sound for motion pictures since 1978. He has been nominated for an Academy Award five times, winning twice for “Speed” and “Robocop.” He has received numerous Golden Reel Awards for sound editing and sound design from the Society of Motion Picture Sound Editors, three Emmys and a BAFTA, for his work on “Speed.”
Stephen approaches his work like jazz musicians do. With a history of practice and review, musicians typically “hear and remember.” “I approach my work much the same way,” says Flick. In 1981, Stephen was asked to join the George Lucas Sound Department to work on “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Raiders is regarded as one of two pictures that put modern film sound on the map in a whole new way. Throughout the eighties he worked on pictures such as: “Diehard”, “Robocop”, “Total Recall,” “Basic Instinct” and “Pulp Fiction.” In 1995 Stephen decided to pursue his own creative goals, forming Creative Café, a sound design, mixing and editing facility in Los Angeles, California. His first projects were “Apollo 13,” “Twister” and “Starship Troopers.” A more recent work was as supervising sound editor on the action adventure film “Total Recall.”
Stephen has also contributed full expressive character voice performances to the major motion picture industry, a short sample of which is: “Zathura,” Zorgon space aliens, Robot; “Constantine,” demon vocals; “Spy Kids 3D,” orbit character vocals; “Starship Troopers”, 5 different alien species, Warrior Bugs, Brain Bugs, etc.; “Robocop 1 & 2”, ED 209 robot, Cain Robot; “Tremors,” giant burrowing, flesh eating worms; “Poltergeist 1 & 3,” ghosts; and “All the Pretty Horses,” horse vocal work, among others.
