Analyze the Dailies
- MOS - without sound
- On this disk, some of the scenes needed dialog replacement. But in this scene, there is absolutely no recorded dialog. It was filmed totally without sound.
- When you do dialog replacement (re-recording the dialog back in the studio), you have lots of problems matching the sound recorded on the movie set vs. recorded in the studio.
- So why not replace all the dialog. Then you have perfect sound and a perfect match. This is the way many motion pictures are made. Look at "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly."
