MORE INFO AND DETAILS
What is Audio Post-Production?
Audio Post Production is the process of creating the soundtrack for a visual program of some kind. Ever since silent movies began to talk, filmmakers have been looking to control and improve the quality of the sound of their creation.
As soon as creators realized there was a way to control and enhance the sound of their pictures, Audio Post was born, and has been a fact of life ever since.
As TV evolved, and the art form grew to include "videotaped" and "filmed" programming, the need for Audio Post increased. Nowadays, it would be difficult to find any feature film or television show that hasn't been through audio post.
Mixing / Re-Recording / Dubbing
At Sound Pressure Studios we take care of Mixing with major importance since this stage is responsible of balancing the various elements, i.e., - the Dialogue (and ADR), Music, Sound Effects, and Foley Effects, in the final mix.
For us this is the most important job in audio post production, where all of the sound elements of a project are balanced and blended together. The final copy of the composite soundtrack is delivered as a digital file with extreme secure measures.
Sound Effects Editing and Design
Ever wonder how they made the sound of Darth Vader's helmet breath, or the Empire's Tie Fighters, or that great train wreck sequence from "The Fugitive"? - Sound Effects Editing and Design are how.
At Sound Pressure Studios the process of adding sound effects (backgrounds like: air, rivers, birds, traffic, and hard effects like: gunshots, door slams, body falls, etc.) is mainly digital but we also use some analog technology to create sound effects that have never been heard before, or to artistically create specific "mood" sounds to complement the director's vision of the visuals.
Foley Recording and Editing
Taking its name from Jack Foley, the Hollywood sound effects person generally regarded as the "father" of these effects, Foley effects are sounds that are created by recording human movement in sync with the picture. Different from the environmental backgrounds and hard effects that comprise edited sound effects, Foley effects are sounds like footsteps, prop movement, cloth rustling, etc.
At Sound Pressure Studios we will reproduce and guarantee that the players involved in this process will take your project to the quality level you wish to be!
ADR (Automated Dialogue Replacement)
At Sound Pressure Studios the actor will have the right environment and mood to record the necessary lines in sync with the picture. So, when necessary, if the production audio is too noisy, or otherwise unusable (bad line reading, airplane fly-by, etc.) the Dialogue Editor will have the chance to "cue" the line for ADR at our studio.
Music Composition and Music Editing
Sound Pressure Studios is ready to make the general Music for Film/TV categories: Source and Songs.
Source music is that music we hear coming from an on screen or off screen device of some kind; some examples are radio source music, phonograph records, TV show themes, when seen on a TV set in the shot, and many other similar variations. Source music may be original, or licensed from a number of libraries that specialize in the creation of "generic" music. Songs may occupy either function, depending on the dramatic intent of the director. Using "Pulp Fiction" as an example, Director Quentin Tarantino hired a Music Supervisor (Karyn Rachtman, FYI) to "score" the picture using period music of the 1970's almost exclusively.
Production Dialog Editing
At Sound Pressure Studios we have the necessary tools and technology to locate the proper take from the recorded production audio, checking sync (so it actually works with the picture properly), and eliminate extraneous noise so that you could have a clean dialog to use during the Mixing process.
Narration & Commentary
Sound Pressure Studios has a great range of industry-standard microphones, the right pre-amp, and an acoustically ideal Narration & Commentary zone. We can deliver what you need and when needed!
