This film follows the perspective of one person as he navigates the troubles of life from birth, to his parent’s divorce, to marriage, then finally to have a son and the cycle starts again. Upon hearing this pitch the director mentioned that the entire film would be shot in a Point of View perspective to fully immerse the audience in the space of our main character James.
To match the first-person perspective we used binaural audio to coincide with James’s point of view. We did this by utilizing a Sennheiser AMBEO VR microphone on set. In post we then broke these files down to Binaural using the plugin Sound Field by Rode. To add additional effects I used the Facebook 360 Spatialization Plugins combined with reaper to help keep the space active and alive. These tools helped me up-mix mono sound effects with ease by giving me the tools to pan the effects around the listener while I watched the film.
