It’s with great pleasure to announce, (Or is it?) That sound design for our new short “The Voice Recorder” is finally over and the film will be now be undergoing coloring process to be ready for final screening at its upcoming premiere at the Bridges theater in Westwood.
My creative and talented friend Arno Stephanian who is in the folly artist behind a series of successful television series including Once Upon a Time in Wonderland and The Conversation was nice enough to help me out with sound design of our production.
Given the nature of the story and with regards to the name of the short “The Voice Recorder” you could guess that the sound design was an important element of the post production stage and I have to admit that Arno did a fantastic job in bringing together all these little pieces of effects, follies and ADR’s combined with all the diegetic sounds coming out of the stereo of the car and the voice recorder itself. Beside Arno I had my great friend Nathan Galovan, who is a comedian at UCLA radio join us to read the diegetic radio announcements and all I can say is that he did a phenomenal job recreating the voice of an early morning radio talk show host spreading positivety for drivers stuck in 405 traffic. Besides these two I can’t thank my talented actress Vaneh and two devoted other actors Robert and Marcia for taking the time to drive all the way to East LA in order to finish the ADR’s before our deadline.
