The preliminary step Critical Studios post production work is what is called Spotting or "Spotting for music" which is the process of viewing the locked cut and deciding where the music score will be, and where the source music will be needed. "Spotting for sound" is the process of determining:
- if and where any dialogue problems may exist, so that ADR can be cued to be recorded
- where sound effects are needed and what kind
- what Foley effects will be needed in the film, and where
- if sound design (the creation of special sound effects), will also be needed
ADR or "Automated Dialog Replacement.
Dialog that cannot be salvaged from production tracks must be re-recorded in a process called ADR.
An actor watches the scene repeatedly while listening to the original production track on headphones as a guide. The actor then re-performs each line to match the wording and lip movements.
ADR gives us the ability and opportunity to recreate and enhance the performance after production so that your work will have its maximum impact to the audience. The process of ADR can be used not just for technical reasons but to add new character or interpretation to a scene. Just by altering a few key words or phrases an actor can change the emotion in a scene.
Our team of experienced sound engineers paired with our relaxed setting will create an atmosphere of ease to recreate the performance in our studio that will give you the effect that you are looking for in your production.
Our work ethic ensures that your product is completed professionally and to your exact specifications within your required deadline. Have Critical work on your next project and have us on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week so that you can meet your deadline.
Sound design is the process of specifying, acquiring, manipulating or generating audio elements. We have the capability to create sound elements for a variety of disciplines including filmmaking, television production, theatre, sound recording and reproduction, post-production and video game software development that is unique to your project.
Our sound design team will make any unique sound that you’re looking for to make your project original. We can manipulate previously composed or recorded audio, such as music and sound effects or create any new sound that you are looking for. We also have the ability to do a composition or manipulation of audio to create a desired effect or mood.
Voice-over (also known as off-camera or off-stage commentary) is a production technique where a voice that is not part of the narrative is used in a radio, television production, filmmaking, theatre, or other presentations. Our staff is able to supply you and your project with a roster of different voice over actors.
Score composition - Musical score creates depth and emotion in your film production. For this reason our team considers score composition as a crucial aspect of post production. We you score compostion to enhance the story line of the production and stay true to the original project.
Foley - Our studio is able to compliment any sound that is needed for your film production by doing some limited Foley. By adding human sound effects recorded in sync with picture gives your project a more authentic feel.
Sound editing and placement
The last element of the post production process is Mixing (also called Dubbing) – Our Mixers have the responsibility of balancing the various elements of the Dialogue (and ADR), Music, Sound Effects, and Foley Effects, in the final mix. Our Dialogue Mixer commands the mixing stage; his partners in the mix are the Effects Mixer and the Music Mixer. On large features, we will bring on additional mixer just to handle the Foley effects. On huge pictures with tight deadlines, we will have several teams of mixers working simultaneously on numerous stages in order to complete the mix by the release date.
