Hire for Audio Post Production Services

Audio post-production is the umbrella term used for the different stages of producing sound and synchronizing it with a moving picture. This moving picture could be a movie, a television show or even a video clip. It is basically the process of creating the soundtrack for these visual formats. It involves sound design, sound effects, Foley, ADR, sound editing, audio mixing, and more.

What Does Audio Post Production Services Include?

The process of audio post-production takes place after the final cut of the film has been approved and involves editing and assembling the sound of the film. The process involves editing the dialogues and syncing them with the lip movements of actors, adding sound effects and design, adding background sounds and incorporating music. All this is achieved by different processes like production recording, sound design, sound editing and voice overs, music composition, Foley recording and mixing, which are carried out by a post-production audio engineer to create a lasting cinematic experience. Sound design is the process of recording, acquiring, manipulating or generating audio elements – for example in a war movie, the sound of the gun going off is an example of sound design. ADR or automated dialogue replacement is the process of recording new dialogue in a studio environment to sync with the video.

Sound editing, on the other hand, involves combining dialogue, sound effects and music into a final mix. Foley recording is simply the process of reproducing the sound effects of a film. Sound mixing is combining the different elements of the film’s soundtrack like dialogues, SFX and music to create something that sounds good and is in lieu with the project’s requirements.

Typically, a post-production audio engineer or a sound engineer leads the audio post-production for film, and many of these engineers are always looking to get freelance projects.
