The Voice of The Forest
The Forest is a script which could have been written for silent cinema, were it not for the essential voiceover of a character who is already dead.
Last Wednesday, the wonderful actor, Oliver Senton (oliversenton.com), joined composer and sound designer on the film, Kim Halliday (kimhalliday.com) in order to record the words of the protagonist's father. Directing this via Zoom went surprisingly smoothly thanks to the technical support from Kim, and due to the fact that Oliver could read a telephone director and make it sound fantastic.
Oliver's interpretation of the father and his acting of the script helped enormously in the visualisation and capturing the atmosphere of the film. I'll be working on the recordings with Kim's help in the next couple of months before the filming of Oliver and Kristin McGuire later in the year.
Thanks goes to both of them for their skill, creativity and support.
