Recording of Mathew in progress / Matteus opname aan de gang

There  you are, warm and sweaty, narrating the movie according to the Gospel of Matthew in a self-made studio. A couple of mattresses to keep out outside noise and damp the echo from inside, no air conditioning because of the noise, heat producing recording material and only after finishing the sequence of sentences the fan can be turned on again.
In a room on the top floor of our office, we have set up a self made sound studio to record the audio tracks for the movie.

It takes about 8 weeks of recording. Before that the whole script had to be finished in the Bk language and of course having auditions for the right voices. It’s a big job, but…it’s all worth it.

Interesting detail: the ‘studio’ in the village can only be used during the nightly hours, because there is a quite busy road passing it. Well, I have a lot of respect for the project team and admire them for their work in this!
