Audio clean-up & editing

Sometimes in film, things don't always go to plan. Audio

captured on set might arrive in the post production studio with

problems, whether due to technical difficulties, challenging

climatic conditions or unwanted background sound.

  • Documentary: Defenders of the Spirit Forest fixed problems with audio due to high humidity levels on location in the jungle causing equipment failures, high levels of background noise such as motorbikes.

  • Corporate videos with film maker Harry Pill: bringing clarity and consistency to interviews.
