Okay, I've said it before, but this time I think the sound is finally, basically, complete. After bouncing around through several mixers, we are finally lucky enough to be working with the wonderful Corey Eccles on a state of the art dub stage. She is bringing our sound up to a level of quality I didn't think was possible for our movie.
Recording a one take movie, mostly outdoors, we were saddled with all sorts of honking horns, airplane engines, police sirens, lav mic pops and static, boom mic distortion, and more than a few flubbed actor lines. After going through several sound mixers, I thought we were simply going to have to live with these issues. But Corey has been able to rapidly erase many if not most of these problems. I am, frankly, astonished at the speed and quality of her work.
Perhaps sound is like a tightly sealed pickle jar, where several people need to have a go at it before the lid finally pops open.
I'll keep my fingers crossed until I get to spot the final output this week. But I think we may finally have a completed movie on our hands.
And now it's a question of finding a festival for our premiere.
