  • Post Production sound requires its own team of talented artists. Treat the process with respect and allot sufficient time and money to do it right.
  • You cannot fix bad production audio in post production and actor's dialogue cannot be easily or accurately produced in post. Get it right the first time and you will be set for a strong sound track.
  • Mixing all of your audio together is an art onto itself. If your engineer is not paying close attention to detail, important information and carefully designed nuances can be lost.
