The first film of the season was marred for many by problems with the sound. For some people it was too loud, others heard a faint clicking from the speakers and many felt the sound balance was all wrong. So... after the film we set the Fleet Film forensic film investigators to work and they have now reported back ! The good news is that the problems with the sound were nothing to do with the sound system at the Harlington or the projection equipment or even our laptop. The problem originates in the (poor) quality of the audio on the brand-new DVD that we used to run the film from. What our tests revealed was that the sound was just as problematic when played through a top-of-the-range super TV system equipped with fully integrated surround sound. Interestingly, since becoming aware of the problem, we've noticed other recent (Hollywood) films that have really awful sound tracks that seem to have been put together in a slap-dash manner, so perhaps some directors are overly focused on the visual at the expense of the quality of the many different elements that make up a sound track ?
