Revolutionary Sound and Picture

Old Fashion Mixed by Marlowe Taylor, CAS Sound Mixer!

Ok, Wow I haven’t had a chance at all in 2013 or 2014 to post anything! I m very sorry, yes i mixed a lot of movies last year, so far a record high(8). But anyway that’s another blog conversation, lol! It was a wonderful union  working year!!!


But lets talk about the movie Old fashion directed by Rik Swartzwelder and shot in Southern Ohio in a very very small town! It was a very cool experience for me, because i had to do all the wiring of the lavs and things on the talent plus plant mics and other tricks, which was fine until i realize the director had to play the lead role in the film due to unforseen circumstances,,,!!! Soooooo Holy smokes, your kidding me right, now there is no room for mistakes right!! You called it, so lets just add to my already nervousness to mix at the cart and run out to adjust wires, boy ohhhh boyeeee, lol! Well as you can imagine i lived up to my rep for being a Good Sound Mixer and it went off without a hitch, built a wonderful relationship with the producers and the director and was able to help with voice over work and all the ADR needed to really add more life to the scenes in the near future. Lets talk about the adr session for a minute, i understand why most sound mixers just stick with doing sound on set and not stepping into the post world especially if it’s a film you mixed and you get a call about ADR!! You cringe like what did i do wrong , all man i thought i covered this and that, adr for whattttttttttttt?? Rik  Swartzwelder marlowe Taylor Studio 76

Wiring talent never stops even in the studio!

Yep the director is chilling watching his monitor!(up top)







This session proved that Adr isn’t all about what the mixer did wrong or planes, trains and lawnmowers being to loud, sometimes there is dialog that needs to be added or voice over from the characters thoughts, or a few quick lines when the camera cuts behinds the actor head and you can slip in a few extra words that just make the scene jump right at you emotionally!!! Wow , what do you know, this is how Adr is also used, i have to tell you i felt 1 million times better,, good grief, hahah lol! This was one of the most exciting ADR sessions i have ever had and the cast that stop by were all amazing and like family! It was all smiles and lots ,, lots and lotsssssss of laughing that week! I have to say Rik is an awesome director and I pray to mix his next big adventure as well! Speaking of big adventure, check this out Old fashion the feature has been released Valentines Day Weekend 2015 and for a small indie film only  in select theaters it reached $1.1 Million Dollars at the box Office and has now gotten selected to open in 100 more major cinema’s. Old fashion is a true love story of how relationships come to life and should take their time to blossom which is the grounds for a strong and lasting marriage with a prosperous future!!!
