Well. Looks like they started with narration, and they really wanted to get acquainted the mic options first. Spent a good time on that, and discussing the process of the project. There were some really hilarious, ‘duh’ or ‘you gotta be kidding me’ moments in here I’ll be able to write about a little down the road lol. For reasons I probably shouldn’t go into, we almost didn’t get anything recorded today (and the session nearly got cancelled altogether), but we did end up doing our mic shootout at least.
AKG C414, Telefunken C-20, and 2 Blue Bottles in the pictures.
We spent some time taking some detailed notes and getting samples of the different mics with different lines. And this way when the rest of the VO cast comes through, the dialogue directors will know what they have to work with.
We started out watching video mixes from previous projects and fight scenes from the movie Pacific Rim so everyone could get used to hearing things in the room they’ll be spending a good amount of time in, spent another hour or so shooting lines and then called it a night
I would have moved the guitar gear into the garage and out of the way but I have a session guitar player coming in tomorrow morning.
