Mention “Telecine Problems” to
most production sound mixers and producers and they break out into a cold sweat.
No other part of the post-production process has the potential to cause as many
cost over-runs, headaches and finger-pointing as audio “issues” that arise in
the telecine session. This seminar seeks to eliminate this anxiety and prevent
costly mistakes from happening BEFORE the telecine session.
The first step to ensure a smooth session is communication; this seminar is a
collaboration between Gotham and PostWorks New York, bringing together Sound
Mixers, Telecine Technicians and Production Managers to discuss the new
workflows for file-based audio recorders.
Specific topics we will
- Different types of telecine sessions: Sync-In-Session vs. Post-Sync vs.
Sync in Avid/FCP
- Telecine with Viper Cam & Genesis Cam
- 48 KHz vs. 48.048 KHz workflow – benefits & caveats
- Troubleshooting: Handy Formulas, Possible Problems, Offset vs. Drift
- EDLs and Flex Files and why they’re important
- Labeling, Sound Reports, and maintaining open communication.
We hope that by sharing ideas and methods and encouraging communication,
these tutorials will benefit all facets of the production and post-production
