The Invention of Hugo Cabret | Christopher Camp

The Invention of Hugo Cabret


I worked on the audiobook, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, by Brian Selznick. It’s the story of a 12 year-old thief, Hugo, who lives hidden in a busy train station in Paris during the 1930′s. Martin Scorsese later made this book into a film calling it “a very personal film”.

Selznick included his own illustrations throughout the print version of the book. I was asked by Scholastic Audio to match these illustrations with sound design. Watch the video.

The audobook was awarded Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award and AudioFile Best Audiobook of 2007 among other awards. I used Sony Vegas to edit and mix the sound design.
