Davina Michelle “My Own World”
Dutch pop artist Davina Michelle was supposed to play 2 sold out shows at the AFAS Live venue in Amsterdam in the week that COVID-19 put The Netherlands in a lockdown. The whole team was disappointed, but decided to get creative. They started a cooperation with AFAS Live & Pathé, played the show in an empty venue, mixed it in stereo and 5.1-surround so they could reach their fans in those difficult times. I was Audio Postproduction Consultant, and helped the team out with:
- the technical setup in their studio (placing & aligning the 5.1-surround speaker setup)
- communication with the dubbing stage where we make the sound Dolby-proof so it sounds good in the cinema’s
- figuring out the delivery specifications for the video-on-demand-platform
- answering all sorts of technical questions from the team
The project was screened in all Pathé-cinema’s in The Netherlands and it’s available on the Pathé Thuis platform
I had a lot of fun doing this !
