This is definetely OT but:
the director I am working with on an independent motion picture inquired at a post prod facility in NY about the amount of time needed to edit and finalize his dialog tracks for a movie that is a little less than 2 hours long. They said it would need about 3 weeks !?
The director mostly directs commercial spots and this is his first motion picture (same here, this is the first soundtrack i write for something longer than 20 minutes)
I told him that 3 weeks sounded crazy to finalize his dialog tracks but i\'ve never done dialog post production. The dialog is already recorded. There is no need to redo some of the scenes. Probably just clean up the tracks, maybe add some ambience when needed, eq, compress, limit ...etc
A mastering job i guess.
I told him i would ask my buddies at NS about this issue and get back to him.
So here i go again... I turn to you, shut up and learn.
