Today, we review our last sessions and send our last emails before we log off and kick back. As we sink into our slippers and fire up the egg nog, we can rest assured knowing we had a hand in this year’s long distance cheer. It has been quite a year at Flavorlab, and while many things have changed, the Christmas season has not. In fact, in 2020, holiday content was at a high. From Lifetime to Hallmark to NBC, our audio elves worked hard to give this strange year’s end some jolly magic.
“It feels good. It feels like we’re growing. We’re developing a shorthand with our clients and making better work.”
Brian Quill, Head of Audio Post
Taking on the season from his studio in Connecticut, head of audio post, Brian Quill, found a good flow. With production timelines backed up, but post-production delivery dates the same, and other projects coming in and out, efficiency was necessary. “Working with Eric and the team from afar, as always, was great. On my end, the lack of commute definitely helped with this volume of work,” he laughed. When it came to mixing, the team found the distance didn’t slow them down a bit. With new environments came new ways of working. “There’s something to be said for setting up your space yourself. With the move to remote, I’ve found myself switching between monitors and headphones quite a bit,” Brian continued. “Headphones throw you into the details. Listening this way gives me more perspective on my work and my skillset keeps improving.”
