Topic: Welcome to the Audio Forum!

While we've always had a forum with the name "Audio," this is essentially a new forum. What we came to realize is that the "audio" forum has almost always been used for casting calls and little else. As a result, audio, which is half the end product of a film, has been given little importance in discussion on this site; any attempts to have serious discussions were typically buried quickly by more casting calls.

My hope is that now that these forums are separate, we can begin to have fruitful discussions about the design, recording, editing, and mixing of audio in brickfilming. I think it is an under-appreciated and under-attended element of most independent film, and I hope that we can rise to the occasion and begin to take it more seriously on Bricks in Motion.

YAY!  I always wanted AUDIO to be about music, soundtracking, and other aspects of brickfilm sound!  Thank you

Good decision, now we can discuss audio topics without them being buried by Casting Calls. mini/smile

Re: Welcome to the Audio Forum!

Good thinkin'. Now technicalities and such of audio editing/help with audio with be separate from the flood of casting calls. Just wondering, I've seen some forum sites use sub-topics. Would you somehow be able to have a "Casting Call" subtopic under "Audio"?

The only extension for our forum software that I know of that does this looks hideous. It might be feasible when the site gets rebuilt (hopefully early 2016).

This is great!  I'm also impressed with how many topics have been shifted.

I pored over the entire history. It's possible I missed a thread or two, but it should be pretty close to everything that wasn't a casting call.

I'm a huge fan of this thread split! mini/smile

I've always wanted to work more on audio aspects other than voices, and, this is the perfect way to do so!

I just hope the new "audio" thread will be at least half as busy as the casting call thread.
