Nalip Do Your Doc Conference
9/15/14 – Herb Ferrette, II, and I spoke about audio post at NALIP’s Do Your Doc conference yesterday afternoon, and followed the presentation by participating in a speed mentoring session where we helped attendees puzzle out some more specific issues concerning their individual projects. It was great to talk with talented filmmakers and help them to start thinking about their sound needs and approaches earlier in the process.
