    Welcome!!! As one of the resident sound folks here I have to add my obligatory... Your project will only look as good as it sounds, because "Sound is half of the experience" If your film looks terrible but has great sound, people might just think it's your aesthetic. If your film looks...

    location Room Echo - Post Production Nightmare?

    Yes, recording DX in a very ambient space is possible, but it requires a lot of experience and technique. You may want to check out "Being There" (1979). Besides being a great and very funny film Jeff Wexler (PSM) and Don Coufal (Boom-Op) did a fantastic job capturing DX in the highly ambient...

    What men find attractive varies greatly from culture to culture. What men find attractive changes from generation to generation. What men find attractive is as individual as men themselves. Not all men are attracted just to a woman's physical attributes. And what men find attractive can -...

    Aspiring film editor looking for suggestions.

    This is a "How long is a piece of string?" question. At the very least we need a rough budget.
