Recently we finished the final sound design and mix of Anomaly with the talented Brett Hammond of Studio 11211! Brett cleaned up the location sound tracks, added SFX and foley, and mixed all the levels. It’s often said that film audiences will forgive flawed visuals, but have a hard time time focusing when the audio is inconsistent. How true!

One of the main challenges with this documentary was gathering the sound from our various characters in more than 26 different shooting locations and polishing it to seem like the same acoustic “space.” There was a dramatic before-and-after improvement that made it all more uniform and easy on the ears! Maybe we’ll post a few demo clips down the road. :)  Brett was a skilled and intuitive collaborator, with a fantastic ear for sound, and simply delightful to work with! Check out his various film and audio projects at Studio 11211.
