Episode 13: And Sound Design for Movies

Did you know that a lot of the sound we hear in movies, even live action ones, are added in post? From everything to the footsteps to the conversations and the *tink* of glassware? Because I sure as hell didn’t.

Lesson this week? Check the live-action films too.

Also, there’s a buzzing in the background. I have no idea how to get rid of it. I am forcing myself to learn to live with it. Perfection? I don’t have time for perfection.

Because the sound effects for this episode need to be consistent with the ones from earlier episodes I took a trip down memory lane and while I was there, I read some blog posts and I’ll be damned if I wasn’t naïve.




There’s no buffer here. There are only tears.

Anyway, because yet another cold took me out this week, I’m writing this on a Sunday! Now isn’t that just nuts?
