And good location sound begins with the director. It keeps the connection between the characters and the audience alive. It’s about capturing talent performance on set, the way specific places or props sound and delivering it to the editing room.
A major component of excellence is to get involved in every stage of the audio production chain – from developing the story and logistic challenges on set to the sound design and the final mix. This kind of overall sound supervising is the best way to bring the dialogue safely to where it belongs and contributes to the creative process.
In the end it is not about microphones and technical tools, but rather about the ability to reveal each character’s strength according to director’s intent and artistic performance.
