The Other Side of the Postcard | O Outro Lado do Cartão-Postal
The Favela Pacification Program was launched in 2008 to reduce crime and drug trafficking in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In April 2015 however, police shot and killed 10-year old Eduardo in Complexo do Alemão, causing uproar in that community. Alemão and other pacified communities began to realise that the program had become the very thing it was designed to destroy.
Claire worked as a Sound Mixer for Script 2 Screen Media. She took the raw audio from a compilation of mobile phones, low quality camcorders and the crew’s DSLR cameras, and cleaned the audio to its best achievable quality. Claire also created sequences of ambience for scenes lacking in any sound, or for photo slide-show sequences.
To complete this project, we utilised the RX Izotope software for dialogue editing. For more information on equipment and software, visit our services page.
