Chatting With Robots

This is a creepity little short called Alma (via Michael Allen Nelson). It's unusual to mix in clothing noise in animation, but here they do. Actually, I think they do a bit too much. It sort of sounds like the character is wearing a lavaliere microphone and polyester jacket -- and the dialog editor didn't do a very good job. But of course, no, these sounds are all deliberate.

As much as I have Penelopelust, the Arri Alexa actually exists in a digital form ($60,000 plus lenses).

Lucky for me none of these cameras looks that much better than my Panasonic GH-1. They look better, don't get me wrong, just not that much better.

And OF COURSE you need the sounds of her clothing. There's no dialogue, so all other sounds become infinitely more important.

So cool. So French.

In my production sound life I was always trying to get RID of that sound. ;-)
