Sound Editing in Drawings

After recording 20 actors we had to sit down with our sound designer Arjun Sheth to select good takes and put together the audio track - line by line, character by character, scene by scene. It is a very tedious job that requires high levels of concentration. To document the process of making "My Love Affair With Marriage" we allowed one small distraction - my intern Angie Jimenez from Rudolf Steiner School came with his drawing tools and furiously sketched our intense sound edit session. Angie is a very talented artist and I wanted to share his talents with you.

 Here's Arjun by his work table, making sure we get to select the best takes.

 Right behind Arjun is Sturgis Warner, the film's co-producer and casting director, who is carefully listening to different takes.  Internal intensity only looks sleepy from the outside.

 And this is me. Although it looks like I am half asleep, I am listening carefully to the several takes of the line that is in the speech bubble so that I could form an opinion before we discuss which take is the best.

 The close-up of Arjun who is also listening. He has an excellent ear!
