Audio Post Production

VTO produce finished sound for films, television shows and video game projects. We integrate (plan, cast, direct, record, edit and produce) dialogue, music and effects (SFX) into a complete, synchronised soundtrack.

Sound Design

  • Storyboarding (the plan)
  • Sound effects & atmospherics sourcing & recording
  • Synchronizing sound elements with the on-screen action
  • Integration of music & voice (see below)

Whether the backdrop is an undersea wilderness or modern family home, our sound designers will enhance the visuals with the perfect soundtrack, to provide the audience the best possible experience. We’ll make a master plan (storyboard), assemble the digital sound palette and synchronize all the elements (SFX, music, voice) with the on-screen action, until they are perfectly situated within the film. Further information on each element can be found below.

Voice

  • Pre-production & post-production voice over services
  • Dialogue / Character / Presenter / Announcer
  • Casting
  • Recording
  • Editing
  • Enhancement

Whether pre-production (before), production (during) or post-production (after filming), we direct our voice actors personally to ensure that dialogue is clean, matches the action on-screen, and fits within the world of the production.

Mixing (for film, television & video)

  • Music editing.
  • Music mixing.
  • Mixing dialogue with music and effects.

We choose, optimise and put together voice, sound effects and music into a full, synchronised soundtrack. Mixing ‘finishes’ the project, optimising the sonic experience and ensuring it is perfectly balanced within the visuals.

Enhancement

  • Trimming, editing, levelling.
  • Noise reduction.
  • Volume normalization.
  • Compression.
  • Consistent sound.
  • Timing / synchronization.

The raw sound elements of a project require polishing to ensure they match the on-screen visuals, and each other. Enhancement is a standard feature of our post-production process, but we can also be contracted for specifically ‘enhancement-related’ tasks, as befits your project.

Quality

  • Native QA.
  • Archiving.

By definition, much of our dubbed output is localized to other languages and so multiple, independent, native quality reviews are built into our Post Production workflows at the appropriate stages. Transferred deliverables are also tested for corruption and in addition all content is archived for a minimum of five years.

Non-Audio Services

  • Translation.
  • Sub-titles.
  • Video editing.

Sometimes ‘finishing’ a film, game or video production requires audio-related equivalents, enhancements or replacements – perhaps to support silent playback (in public places, trains, elevators, etc), or at other times, to keep costs down.

In terms of finding good quality voice recordings that don't break the bank, I couldn't recommend this place more highly. They made it incredibly easy to find the type of voice I needed and the turnaround was super quick!
