Post Sound: The Other 50%
Capturing sound is half the Sound Engineer’s battle. What’s the other half? How sound fx and quality mixing will enhance your film.
Writing Dialogue With Layers
We think story should have replay value. Writing dialogue with layers will help your audience enjoy your film more than once.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are you doing this project?
Project Volare is about investing in upcoming filmmakers. It is important to read books and hear instructions, but we also need to see the practical applications of technique. That is why we are doing this Project. Visual learning is one of the best ways to learn, especially in filmmaking.
Will there be more episodes?
Do you want more? We hope so. If these first 6 episodes are well received, we will create a “second season”. An all new story, all new short, and new videos with tips and advice on how to make your films great.
