Teamwork and team spirit

Sound recording, as well as film, documentary and television production, is above all a question of passion. The members of our sound team are no exception to this rule. Passionate about sound and often a musician at heart, the members of the Films.Solutions team have many years of sound production experience. Often considered perfectionists on film sets, they know what they’re talking about. In addition to making sound, they are very often led to sound postproduction, and are well aware of the problems related to poor sound recording. A few more minutes on the set often mean hours and a lot of money saved in post-production.

One of the big problems today for all soundmen is the proliferation of electromagnetics waves. Communications towers and antennas, cellular, WIFI, LTE, 4G and soon 5G, all technologies must be taken into account during filming and what we do to avoid any problems in filming and avoid many inconveniences in postproduction.

Recording sound may require only one engineer. In television or advertising he is capable of performing both positions simultaneously. The operator, who capture the sound with his boom microphone, and the mixer, who adjusts volume levels accurately.

In Features films, sound recording may requires to hide microphones in the scenery and on the actors to provide a more aesthetic touch to the picture, without compromising the sound.
