Hollywood, CA (November 6, 2003)–Post Logic Studios is playing a prominent role in audio mixing and finishing for top reality and variety television programs. Highly-rated shows such as The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Who Wants to Marry My Dad, Project Greenlight, The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, and others, put the unique challenges of unscripted, uncontrolled audio environments into the hands of mixers Conner Moore, Fred Howard, Jamie Ledner and Andy Griffith.
Post Logic Studios’ audio division is perfectly suited to mix this type of programming. While other facilities use an assembly line approach to audio finishing, Post Logic Studios assigns a dedicated audio specialist to see a project through from beginning to end. Based on the company’s history with sound for reality and variety programs, the mixers are well-versed in tackling the heavy dialogue editing, noise reduction, mixing and music editorial that is required on these shows. With the added benefit of on-site Avid Symphony and telecine bays, many producers also take advantage of the ability to walk into Post Logic with their off-line elements, and walk out with a finished, ready-to-air master.
Describing some of the complexities of working on this type of programming, Ledner explains, ” A show like Who Wants to Marry My Dad will run a six-to-eight episode arc that comes to a closely guarded surprise ending. Because the producers do not want the finished shows languishing in post, they are often cut and finished just days prior to air. All of the audio is unscripted, with anywhere from five to 20 people miked remotely, so one of the main issues we face is cleaning up noise and zeroing in on what is important and allowing that to be heard.”
