    SOUND

    SOUND

    One of the most forgotten and undervalued departments and one most amateurs don't think about is SOUND. In this episode we discuss with Alonso what were some of the things we did wrong during production that now were going to have to be fixed in post. He will break down his process of cleaning out the original audio and the irrecuperable audio that later turned into extra audio expenses. He will also go into detail on what it took to create gun shots from scratch, as well as how can sound design affect the emotion of a scene.
