We are Done!

Well everyone, it’s been a wild ride. We’ve been with this project for 6 months. We remember reading through scripts, working and reworking the dialogue, doing the casting.

Mixing It All Up

The film is ready and the sound designers have done their work: music, sound effects, ADR, ambience sound. Now it’s time for mixing it all up to create the right balance between all the sound elements in the movie; sound is half of the experience when you watch a movie, so this is a very important stage.

One of the final stages of post-production is color correction. Although the basic tone and feel of the film was created during the shoot day with the light choices and camera settings used by the Director of Photography, at this stage we go back and enhance the colors so every shot will look consistent and with the best contrast.

Jess Smith reading for Abberline

The magic of film making is that what we see on the screen is not necessarily what happened on set. As producers we have many tools to improve our films and one of them is ADR.

The light at the end of the tunnel

We completed the ADR session this week, it was a pleasant experience to be there and watch the actors work in a different environment, as they are very professional and skilled the session felt light, even if it lasted 4 hours. The composer is doing an amazing job as well; he is expected to finish by the end of the week. The foley [...]
