Time for an update on A House for Marge!
Lately, I’ve been working hard both learning how to dialogue edit and mix sound, and also applying that new knowledge to the project. I got a great book called Dialogue Editing for Motion Pictures: A Guide to the Invisible Art. It’s been a fantastic help.
The book starts out with the history of dialogue editing and then explains how to get all the pieces you’ll need on a big production. Not necessarily useful to me, but it was interesting.
That’s the first third of the book. For the rest, it’s all practical hands-on stuff about the dos and don’ts of dialogue editing. And it’s more principles than rules (or should I say guidelines?). If you read this book, you will learn how dialogue editing works and you will be able to apply it.
So I’ve been doing that.
Can’t wait to hear the beautifully edited sound on Marge! 😀
