You could compare mixing for film to that of making a delicate dessert. Every ingredient has to be exact, otherwise you’re left with something flat, dense or hollow in places. It’s safe to say that the mixing team behind 20th Century Studios’ ‘Ford v Ferrari’ have baked their perfect audio Baklava.
Here’s some perfect coffee break fodder – Check out this YouTube video of Supervising sound editor Don Sylvester and sound mixer David Giammarco walk us through their sound mixing process for Best Sound Editing ‘Ford v Ferrari.’
No wonder they won the Oscars 2020 winner for Sound Editing! Congrats to the team.
In an era where a new camera comes out or is announced seemingly every week, should whether it’s ‘Netflix approved’ be something that you care about?
No, not really. Unless you are shooting something for Netflix, content shot on non-approved cameras can still be accepted by the streaming giant for purchase.
Story is still king! If you make something that engages with people this is what will get your project sold, not what it’s shot on.
For a more in-depth analysis of the Netflix-approved camera system, Armando Ferreira has an interesting look.
