  • Introduction

    Berkeley-based independent filmmaker Bill Kinder began his career in documentary, news, and sports, with a focus on editing and creating experimental nonfiction films. He then worked at American Zoetrope and later Pixar, where he was founding director of editorial and post-production from 1996 to 2014.


Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Lee,

Mr. Incredible, his wife, a.k.a. Elastigirl, and their three children are superheroes living in anonymity in a bland suburb. Stuck in a white-collar job, Bob (to the denizens of Metroville) longs for the days when his nine-to-five was saving the world. Then a malfunctioning robot, the Omnidroid, gives him the op to don his derring-do duds and fight the evil Syndrome, ruler of the robot remote. This Pixar pic by Brad Bird (Ratatouille) has a stunning compendium of sounds supporting the film’s delirious visual feel, from the retro 1960s suburb to the futuristic mega-machines. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Sound Editing.
