Sound on A Star Is Born

Recommended Posts

Just saw A Star Is Born (Cooper/Gaga)... Just want to say that if Steven Morrow, the credited mixer, is on these boards, you did an amazing job mate. One of the best dialogue jobs I've heard in a long time, and in what seemed like some very challenging environments.

Astounding sound -- very clean singing (for the live stuff) and every line perfectly audible. I think there were some issues with story, edit pacing, and timing, but acting and sound were nearly flawless. Beautiful color, too.

The sound was incredible. The levels weren't blown out or over compressed. I really enjoyed the listening aspect of this movie. In the final solo, I noticed the sound go to its highest level of the entire movie. This effect made me take notice and I appreciated the sound editor not making the entire movie ear shattering. This increase in sound level also assured me that the Theater house sound was turned up loud enough. 

 

I have just one comment. I watched this movie from the last row of my local Theater. I still got motion sickness. I am not sure if the theater is correctly calibrated for video projection or I am sensitive to motion sickness. However, I feel the Camera operator wiggling the camera and adding movement causes motion sickness. This seems to be a popular thing to do these days, I see moving camera shots and wiggling frames constantly. 

 

I would like to start a discussion about the subject of modern camera operators and directors of photography deliberately causing motion sickness whilst trying to stay hip and current. I cannot watch the tv sitcom "The Office" and most reality television. Am I alone?
