On-set sound services. Canada
Passionate about preserving performance.
The main focus of any location filming is collecting the necessary elements to make your final project shine.
One of the most delicate elements, is appropriately capturing the performance of your actors.
Drama deals with emotion, and emotion is almost entirely carried by the quality of an actors voice.
This can be extremely difficult to re-create in post-production.
Comedy relies on timing... your on-set sound crew need to be able to adapt and respond instantly, ensuring that nothing is left behind.
Choose a sound-team that is passionate about capturing your sound. One that has the experience to get results under trying circumstances, and an understanding that the long work day also needs to be fun.
Collecting dialog and sound effects on-set requires physical-strength, skillful diplomacy, and an over-sized sense of empathy.
From documentaries, commercials, and reality shows - to 100+million-dollar special effects extravaganzas...
