There was a bit of a delay in filming the Klingon Pilot scene, but I'm glad to report that they finished filming the scene two weeks ago. Going over the rushes now, and it looks great! Both actors did a great job, and the TMP style Klingon makeup looks wonderful.
I'm having some audio issues with a scene we shot a few months ago of the Klingon Captain. Some buzzing sounds in the background. If anyone out there is good with audio and would like to help us clean up the sound, send me a PM!
Sounds can be cleaned up to some extent, but that should be a last resort IMHO. I would think that a better alternative (if it's at all feasible) would be relooping the dialogue. I know it's a big PITA from a lot of different angles, but when you try to digitally remove extraneous noise from a soundtrack you run the risk of making things worse, not better with new artifacts and a general flattening of track. That's my 2 cents and I'd be more than happy if someone with more experience than I have would like to chime in. In fact, I'd be delighted to get some new ideas for cleaning up less than perfect sound tracks! They would no doubt come in handy in my own post-production work!
