Insider Insights On Indy Filmmaking: Post Production, Music, And Sound

Yes, I was originally going to title this article “Sound and Music” but beat you to the punch. I robbed you of a lame pun. So eat it, we’re moving on.

As we get into the realm of finalizing audio on your picture, I’d like to preface this section with the fact that your final sound mix will likely be a decisive factor in letting a distributor or buyer gauge how much money you spent on your film. In addition, how much your project feels like a “real” movie will come in large part from how professional and complete your out to be.

I have turned off films after less than five minutes simply because the sound was not to the minimal professional level. I’ll tolerate bad acting and lame dialogue longer than a shoddy sound mix. The fact is, in some cases I can sell a film with bad acting and lame dialogue if it has other marketable elements (i.e. boobies) but I can’t sell a film with bad sound.
