A great short film with some fantastic performances from a wide range of actors and non-actors. I oversaw sound post; editing dialogue, recording and editing sound effects and foley, creating backgrounds and sound design and final mixing in 5.1 surround. I also recorded the off screen ADR on location in Liverpool and the group ADR in my studio.
We had a fantastic sound recordist in Andrew Rowe which meant that the dialogue editing went very smoothly and there were a lot of very usable production effects and great wild tracks that meant the amount of foley and group ADR necessary was minimal. A lot of work went into careful use of backgrounds to create the various environments that the characters find themselves trapped in.
