If you like your audio material disturbing, you could try out this radio play downloadable from “Tales Beyond The Pale” written and directed by film director Simon Rumley- a follow up gig from working on the Red White and Blue Movie. I ran the recording session and dialogue edit, Vincent Watts did the sound design and Mix.

Red White and Blue UK Premier

Following screenings at  SXSW, CANNES, and winning the Best Film Prize at the Boston Underground IFF, Red White and Blue gets its UK premier at 6:30 Pm on 30th August at the main screen of The Empire in Leicester Square as part of the Film Four Fright Fest.

Be warned this film is very disturbing.  It starts slowly,  giving you time to engage with the characters  before events spiral out of control.  I think that one of the strengths of this film is that -Unlike standard Hollywood fare- there is no clear good or evil, just very flawed people  living  with the bloody repercussions of their own actions. If you want to categorise it, you could draw a lot of parallels with the Jacobean strand of the  revenge play genre. (so not your run of the mill slasher film) The film maintains lot of grey areas- the music remains unempathetic for many of the most extreme scenes.

I did this job through the Sonic Mix Audio Collective . So I handled the foley and dialogue edit, working alongside Vincent Watts who handled the Sound design and mix. There are bits of extrovert sound design care of  Vince, but my brief was to maintain a documentary feel. The foley was kept really understated and wheras you would usually expect to replace large chunks of sync sound with polished post production, I kept  as much as possible of the sync sound when handling the dialogue/sync edit. We stuck entirely to dialogue recorded on location, used no post sync looping sessions + tended towards layering up extra surround sound ambiences on top of existing ambiences recorded on set. Certain set pieces aside, the aim throughout the audio post process was to keep things sounding natural and  complement the documentary feel of the picture.
