Alberto Parodi -

Audio post-production

and corrections on location

"I've been professionally stimulated for many years by Alberto Parodi's passion and ability in all that has to do with sound. He has continued to invest so as to have the best and most efficient technologies for his craft, and he makes it seem so easy to make it all work to the highest levels of quality and efficiency.

 

Its no surprise that he likes the 8k Mobile Lab that I have designed with Mike Connor, and I'm happy to explain to our clients his qualities and skills. I think he adds a winning combination to our image post production. Indeed, he's come up with a brilliant portable sound unit for audio on location that is designed to work very efficiently with the Mobile Digital Lab".

David Bush.

As with images, solving problems with sound recorded on location can also be a huge time and money saver. With more and more live sound productions ADR becomes ever more necessary. Talent can sometimes have difficulty attending sessions booked months later in dubbing studios; whereas making any corrections, with quality control and ADR immediately on or near set offers a great advantage to production, with actors and actresses still there and available to re-dub the performances that are also still fresh in their minds. This is one of the many services that Alberto offers when in conjunction optionally with the 8k Mobile Digital Lab.

 

He also offers the Audio Align Post Service which corrects the delay and comb-filter phase issues that occur when recording multiple moving microphones, such as in the case of a shoot set-up using a boom microphone in addition to actor’s and actress’s lavalier microphones or multiple on-set microphones.

The alignment and correction of the defects, if operated on set, saves hours and hours of tedious, time-consuming tasks in post audio facilities that often require several ear-twisting days to complete.

 

Additional services Alberto offers in loco with the 8k Mobile Digital Lab are:

 

  • Consultancy in Live Recording

  • Audio Editing

  • Mixing (up to 7.1 and Dolby Atmos HE)

  • Dialogue Audio Editing 

  • Sound Design

 

Alberto also offers Quality Control of all the audio and the metadata recorded on location; Cleaning and Restoring of all the audio files including:

 

  • Spectral De Noising,

  • De Clicking

  • De Hum

  • De Reverb 

  • De Plosive

  • De Rustle

  • De Wind 

 

Alberto uses Protools Ultimate and Resolve’s Fairlight with all the specific software that is normally used during post-production in facilities. He is also fully operative on Da Vinci Resolve and can collaborate usefully with the editor and colourist.

Alberto's Portable Sound Design System

Alberto's Portable Sound Design System is taken on or near to the set and works in tandem with the main Mac Pro and Resolve workstation. Audio is worked on very quickly without slowing down editing and grading on the Mac Pro. (see Alberto's additional portable equipment for location recording above).

 

Beyond the audio acquisition and sound design opportunities, Alberto also owns and runs a state of the art sound post-production facility with Dolby ATMOS HE mixing capabilities. The facility and his services are available optionally and separately, remotely on line, or as a fixed facility to make the final mix for deliverables, if desired.
