Muutos is a traditional Christian indie feature film, to which I took a part for some time. I was present at a couple of shootings as a recordist, created a couple of ambient atmospheres and designed the sound.
The sample is from the second song of the three song set Muutos performed at Gospel Savo event in 2009. The drums were electronic and their sound was available only in two channels, so they couldn’t be mixed in as properly as would have been best. All of the other instruments were recorded individually.
Volume automation was used to level the dynamics of the dialogue. The dialogue was to be clear and distinct. It’s not a realistic approach, but it serves the purpose of a focused message.
The music was mixed to specially support the dialogue. The soundfield has space in the middle, and the reverbs used are extra dark so that they don’t overlap too much with the voice frequencies.
I also was the recordist at some of the shootings, and cleaned the dialogue of the ready film from noises and disturbances.
A school project for a sound design course. The subject was the idol cave sequence from Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark.
This was a group assignment where we wrote the sound design and created the foley and a few other sounds together. I compiled, mixed and mastered the soundtrack, and created the music as well as the executive sound designer.
