I'm working on a project that wants to record a full orchestra, but is quite limited on funds. Has anyone has experience with the Eastern European Ochestras (ex. Bratislava, Belgrade, Prague) that could give me their thoughts on their experience?
The film is going to have probably 50-60 minutes of music. I believe the project budget is probably around $15K, but they would probably rather only spend around 10K if possible. I am willing to chip in some of my own cash if I'm sure it will make a big difference (aka if getting a really good recording is going to cost $5 or $10K more)
Thoughts? Ideas? I would prefer NOT to have some sort of hybrid live/sampled score if at all possible, but I am not against sweetening the recording with samples afterwords to "touch-up" things.
