Simon Hayes has written another great article for the IATSE 695 journal, this time focusing on his team’s work undertaking the production sound recording for the latest James Bind film, No Time to Die. Simon is an engaging writer, and obviously passionate about his work and sharing knowledge. I love that he gets to work on high budget films that allow him to undertake his work with a high degree of artistry.
I love that he tries to get coverage of so much more than just the dialogue when he can, including multi-miking of vehicles and other effects, and getting someone from his team out to record ambiences and atmospheres when possible. All stuff I like to do myself when given the opportunity, but unfortunately a lot of lower budget productions don’t allow this to happen a lot of the time and so compromises are made.
