A powerful and important film based on an incredible true story, I feel really privileged to have had the opportunity to work alongside the filmmakers to bring it to an audience.
I oversaw sound post; editing dialogue and sound effects, creating backgrounds and sound design and pre-mixing in 5.1 in my studio. I bought Alasdair Jones on board to help with the extensive group ADR session.
The Foley Factory provided many layers of detailed and evocative foley and also provided additional group ADR and sound effects recordings.
Rael Jones composed a powerful, beautiful score that propels the film and enhances the already extremely powerful cinematography and performances.
Finally, we were lucky enough to be able to have the incredibly talented Ed Sutton do the final mix in Studio 2 at Soho Square Studios.
The film was shot mostly in tight close up, so the soundtrack had to really fill out the background action and create the sense of a much larger, busier environment than we were able to see. We had amazing performances from the whole cast to play off which made it much easier to bring in a lot of background detail.
Thanks to the producers we were able to record a large amount of group ADR, with a huge array of brilliant voice talent in many languages which really brought an authenticity to the backgrounds.
