Crash Symphony Productions’ Green Screen is in close proximity to our high-definition audio recording equipment. We have professional lighting required for Green Screen Video and Photo production. We also use an array of high-end DSLR Video Cameras, and Go Pros for those close-ups and interesting angles. All our audio recording equipment comes included in our Green Screen service..
How can the Green Screen help you?
A Green Screen allows us to insert a unique backdrop behind the performer or speaker- the subject. For example, we can film a musician performing in front of our Green Screen, then place a busy bar as the backdrop behind them. This means we can capture the high quality sound of the recording studio, and then make it seem as though that sound was recorded live. In a live setting, it would be largely impossible to get such a controlled and high quality sound. The use of the green screen allows us to achieve these high-quality visual and audio results for our clients. It’s one of our most powerful tools we employ in our studio.
Our Green Screen is closely integrated into our Recording Studio complex. The advantage of this is that the audio that is recorded for the video is at high-definition studio quality. If the recording were done on location then the audio quality would not be so impressive. High quality audio gets the message across to your target audience. Whether it is selling a product or singing a heartfelt song, ears are just as important as eyes.
How can the Green Screen help your final product?
Firstly, we can provide CD artwork that uses the green screen. Once your audio product has been recorded with us you’ll need artwork. The Green Screen can provide unique images that can be a visual complement to the audio. Often the artwork that is created using the Green Screen is uploaded to the Internet in conjunction with the audio.
Secondly, we can create video content with the Green Screen that is used in conjunction with the audio. This may be a person talking directly to the camera, or musicians playing in front of the green screen.Thirdly, footage captured with the Green Screen can be used in and amongst other footage. The Green Screen content may not take up the entire video. An example might be a band that wishes to record the recording journey throughout their album. Footage is collected along the way, and other footage shot in front of the Green Screen is collated to create the final product.
Crash Symphony can provide the final product as a tangible CD or DVD. Alternatively, we can upload your new video content to your desired online site. This may be YouTube or your own website. We can take care of the video uploading process for you, so you don’t have to worry about learning how to do it once you have acquired the product from us.
This is all part of our Green Screen service. We understand that different people have various degrees of proficiency in working with the Internet and computers, but this shouldn’t prohibit you from taking advantage of the vast array of online services.
Furthermore, we can collaborate with your CD or DVD manufacturer to ensure the files are delivered in the right format, so the product is mass-produced exactly how you expect on the first go.

Expert Sound Engineers
Working with us means working with the best sound engineers in Sydney
The art of being an excellent sound engineer is not as prominent now that video has become the focus of our world. However, a top quality sound engineer can augment the quality of a production dramatically. When we record a vocal for music or a voice over for an ad we have the ability to enhance every aspect of that recording. The modern tools available to the twenty-first century sound engineer are truly remarkable. Staying on top of the rapid progress is very much a full time job. Let's take a quick look at what work is involved in producing an excellent vocal recording for a typical voice over job.
Our sound engineer will setup the session prior to the talent arriving. In the most extreme cases, often film ADR sessions, the project and microphones will need to be prepared first. Our clients, from film productions companies, are often located in another country like the USA, the UK, or somewhere in Europe. They will send the sound engineer the program material. This will be the video files with SMPTE timecode, the cue sheet, and all specifications required by our sound engineer to capture a similar sound to what was recorded on set.
Once these program elements are received our sound engineer in Sydney will go into Pro Tools and mark out all the cue points on the timeline of the film. Each entry point will have ADR beeps that will help the talent execute their lines in Synch with the film. In ADR the talent's job will be to lip synch in time with their delivery on set. By setting up the project prior to the talent arriving our sound engineer ensures that the session flows smoothly for the talent.
Often these "remote sessions" (where the directors and producers are overseas) are facilitated by software that helps us communicate with the overseas studios. Programs like Zoom and Source-Connect allow sound engineers in both locations to be actively involved in the session. The sound engineer overseas can literally press the recording button in one country and our software will obey the command here in Sydney. The directors and producers can watch the video content on their screen whilst listening to the audio being recorded by our sound engineers in Sydney. It's real-time. It's the modern way. It's remarkable!
In this example, an ADR recording session, the sound engineer would also need to setup two microphones. One would be a lapel mic, similar to what might have been used on set, and the other a shotgun microphone. These two microphones are setup by our sound engineer in Sydney in front of a screen. This is to allow the talent to clearly view the film as they are performing. An iPad is also positioned in close proximity to the microphones. This will have all the cue points and lines that the talent will be reading during the ADR recording session.
During the session the sound engineer will be facilitating the smooth capture of cue lines. They make sure that all the takes of each line are saved for future recall and re-listening, and can even cut recorded takes together to create a composite "best take".
Once the ADR session is complete the post-production work on the re-recorded lines begins. The amount of work that goes into the audio post-production is beyond the scope of this example. However, we can give a few examples of the kind of technology our sound engineer might decide to use on the recorded cue lines. There is software to reduce lip and mouth noises. Harsh sibilant frequency can be curtailed. The synch of the spoken lines can be further tightened by intelligent algorithms that look at the original "on set" spoken audio and literally stretch, cut, and compress lines recorded in our Sydney recording studio and make them even tighter. The list of tasks, options, and enhancements that our sound engineer can apply to a voice recording is enormous.
