IT (2017) Sound

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just got done watching It (2017) and I was curious what you guys thought of the sound. The sound design and music were very good, but it sounded like the dialogue was distorting constantly. It sounded like distortion from getting crushed by compressors. Definitely sounded like something that was done on set and not in post. Maybe it was just the center speaker at the theater I was at, but I was curious if anyone else had the same experience.

It's possible that it was done in post, but I doubt anyone would go for that sound unless they were stuck with it (aka production sound). Sounded like transmitter compression to me.

Seems exceedingly unlikely that it would be a production sound error, and as unlikely a post choice/mistake. My guess would be the theater. I experienced muddy unintelligible dialog on one of my films recently at one theater. At another it was crisp and clear, as it had been when I attended the final mix.

Personally, if I'm un happy with the presentation of a theatrical release I make my observations respectfully to the theatre's management or projectionist. The response is usually reasonable and considered. My guess is, in this instant, they would probably put their hand up, try to resolve the issue and offer you another ticket. I doubt they would want to be heard blaming anything upstream before being sure it was not an in house issue.

Mojofunkster, I heard the exact same thing. I noticed it in the scene when the boys enter the sewer by the river, after Ben gets cut and they find the missing girl's shoe. I can't imagine that was an artistic choice. I'm guessing they cleaned it up in post and decided it wasn't worth ADR, or schedules wouldn't allow for it- who knows. It was obvious on the super loud IMAX theatre but if i had been watching at home i may not have noticed.

That's where I noticed it first. Wasn't terrible the whole time but it was really noticable during that scene specifically.

I noticed it whenever the kids were on the bikes or outside in general. Two kids in particular.
