Post production work on my film continues.  The rough cut is now finished.  My editor had a sound editor take a look at our audio problem.  Apparently he pushed a couple of buttons and fixed whatever the problem was.  Yay!  Now I need to get a copy of the rough cut to my composer to take a look at and start scoring.  Final cut, score, sound editing, and we’ll be almost done!

We’ve hit a major snag with the project.  We had a concern with a mic during one of the takes, and switched the plug input to address the concern.  Tech isn’t my specialty, and I trust my team, but I had a bad feeling about changing something like that in the middle of the shoot.  Sure enough, all the audio recorded after the change seems to have come out poorly.  I don’t know exactly what happened, but the fix is frustrating, though necessary:  we need to reshoot half the project.  Fortunately all of the group shots we took before lunch are intact, so we don’t need to coordinate with 3 of our actors.  That would have been a nightmare for scheduling, continuity, etc.  But we will have to set something up with the location again, and coordinate schedules for the 3 crew and 2 actors we’ll be needing, let alone all the equipment, props, wardrobe, etc, we’ll need to bring back.  I’m disappointed that it didn’t turn out, as we had a GREAT day on saturday, but I’d rather reshoot than use poor audio or scrap the project.  I hope we can do it again soon, and it goes as smoothly as last weekend without the audio snag…  😦
