Audio Restoration

The production company Luna Films International were shooting a movie for television when they realized the location sound recordist was not up to the task.

A few shooting days’ audio recording was severely compromised due to extremely low recording levels, improper eq balancing and poor recording skills.

I was tasked to see if I could rescue the audio, as there was virtually now budget to reshoot the lost days. I also had to tonally match the rescued audio with the proper dialogue recordings and clean up noise from excessive level boosting of the rescued audio.

They were so impressed with the result that I was given the job of doing the final mix for the whole movie, including ADR editing and tonal matching.
