Hello! I am in audio post and generally am working on TV advertisements, short indie films, event video, and corportate video.
I am however wanting to learn a bit more about feature length film work. Of course I know in high budget productions, audio work is broken up into different jobs with different people, but I am trying to learn the general gist of how projects are organized, the workflow, the routing for surround and Atmos, etc.
For example in most of the work I do, I’ll have 1 track per character/speaker, as there aren’t too many in the videos I do. But I don’t know how it’s done for feature lengths… Is it just a few DX tracks and checkerboarding is utilized? Same question with SFX, ambience, etc. If checkerboarding, do engineers rely more on automation, or DOP? Things like this are what I am trying to learn.
Are there any resources / classes / tutorials out there (free or paid) that anyone can recommend to learn a bit more about this? I look at this forum a lot to try to learn, but a lot of it is going over my head, as a lot of you seem to already know all of this information so the basic workflow isn’t discussed too much (at least not what I’ve found).
