Here's something I've been thinking about recently after shooting a TV series pilote episode.
We absolutely tried everything to get the best production sound possible.
This means that we had a sound guy who recorded all the talents sound with lav mics and also used a boom mic. He also shot ambient sound and a couple of foley sounds to go along with the action.
So in other words we did everything that we could to get as clean sound as possible.
The problem is no that we're editing things together there are situations where I'm not exactly sure how to deal with sound.
Obviously some things will have to be fixed with ADR but here's my question: How do they deal with this in bigger budget stuff.
Do they shoot production sound and edit it as best as possible and then just use ADR for almost everything or do they splice in the ADR only when production sound doesn't cut it.
I mean I keep thinking to myself why don't we just ADR everything and have clean sound.
So how is this done in bigger budget stuff, I'm really interested?
Hope everyone is doing ok and safe.
