Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Breaking down the client review and revision notes, part of Producing Music for Advertisements.
So we sent off the mixes for client review and got some really great feedback.…So, let's review the notes and discuss some ideas for implementing the client's requests.…Here's the email message that the director sent me.…Hey, Brian. I really, really, really like this.…The melody is great. Would it be possible to add back in a bit…more of the dubstep glitch of the temp? If the needle was at 50% before, push it…to 65 or 70%? Let's see what we can do to the music to…give the editor a stronger foundation for stutter time-cut options.…
So let's break this down. First off, he likes it.…Awesome. So we're headed in the right direction.…But it sounds like he's attached to some of the stutter edit glitchiness of the…original temp, for the editors to riff off more.…Remember, we originally discussed that the temp really sat hard against the…voice-over, making it hard to understand the dialogue.…So my biggest concern with having as many set or edit breaks as the temp track was…it would risk the music getting in the way of the voice-over, which we don't want to do.…
