On Saturday the 19th, I was contacted by Jack to ask if I could come in last minute to record the sound for his film as the original crew member had just dropped out. I haven’t had a lot of experience working with the sound before so I was excited about the opportunity to improve on this area.
All of the filming took place in one interior location so it was a good environment for me to learn in. I was already familiar with what was required from the sound levels and the main problem I encountered was interference noise from the fridge which was right behind where we were filming. There wasn’t any movement in the scene and all of the dialogue was a conversation on one couch so it was easy to find a consistent level for the recording.
I’m glad I took on this challenge last minute because I now feel confident working with recording audio and it was another opportunity for me to see how people were approaching directing their final major projects.
