In this three-part video series, post production mixer and audio expert Mike Thornton demonstrates how he mixed the dialogue for a documentary shot in in central London. Predictably, the city environment caused a variety of noise problems that needed to be addressed.
Follow along and learn as Mike removes audio problems such as ambient noise, reverb, clipping and distortion as well as sudden background interruptions—all while offering tips and tricks for how you could easily incorporate RX into your workflow.
For those situations where time, budget and reality dictates it’s simply not possible to re-shoot or re-record a scene, it’s now possible to RX it, and make sure that pesky noise problems no longer prevent your audio from being usable.
