I Want My Wife Back

Mainstreet Productions BBC 1 19.04.16

Picture and audio post production on 6 x 30 min romantic comedy for BBC 1.

Romantic comedy about one man's attempts to discover why his wife left and win her back.

Tom Corbett mixed the audio in Pro Tools 11, using iZotope RX5 for noise reduction where needed. Being set in Brighton, the challenge was bringing the sound of the city (seagulls, fairground rides on the pier, noisy stag & hen dos) into the interiors of each scene. As each episode moved towards a chaotic climax, Corbett slowly increased the level of the background atmos FX, and became more layered as each episode progressed. As the storyline develops and becomes more complicated, so too does the soundscape.

Perry Gibbs graded the series with the Nucoda Film Master and Owen Hulme completed the online with DS Nitris.

All post was supervised by Portia Napier.
