Sound is so often an afterthought on low budget productions, and we’re not just talking about recording dialogue on set. In our February meeting we’ll explore why post-production audio is so important when telling your story and the role of composers, sound designers and audio engineers in helping to create your story’s emotional arch.

Join NIFP as we continue to discuss the role of supporting artists, this time those involved in post-production audio. Who’s joining us?
