Made On A Mac March 28, 2009Posted by William J. Meyer in Jack's Post-Production.
Some days you work on a project and you shrug, thinking, “Yeah, I guess that works.” Other days, small victories remind you why you wanted to do the damn thing in the first place.
Today I played around with augmenting the diegetic sound for the storm scene, and am thrilled with the old TV effect I worked up in GarageBand (second picture above). But first I cleaned up the vocal track in Soundtrack Pro (first picture above).
It was alota fun mucking up Jeff and Georgia’s performances with distortion, and finding the right balance between craziness and articulation. The scene in question is certainly the densest one in the film (and still requires more work) but it is work I enjoy, and I’m not even a sound guy. My guess would be it’s because I found a way to incorporate eye-beams. And who can resist eye-beams?!
