Looking forward to revised audio
26 November 2019 | by fabmudSee all my reviews

Lection is a movie of few words. One of those mid-2000s wordpress blogger word clouds made of every spoken word in Lection's script would fit easily on a post-it note. So what's left is a lot of ambient sound. At the time of this writing, the soundtrack and audio mixing was placeholder. Visually, Lection is strong. It frames up shots in pleasing ways, and in a way that helps sell the story. My full review is pending because I feel that the audio is going to be such a HUGE part of what makes this piece work, and I wasn't listening to the real thing. I can say that I look forward to watching it again with revised audio.
