If you have two characters talking to each other in your short film and they were shot at different times(because they were played by the same actress), then you might have a hum or noise difference between cuts because the A/C came on or whatever.Record foley ambience and boost it a little to helpor maybeput music underneath it.
I’m serious! That happened to me on my last film, where the girl has a duel persona in the script and they stuck me as audio/foley editor. They couldn’t shoot at the same time, because the other persona had a bunch of makeup, so there was noise problems.
Also,when you make your motion graphics title sequence in After Effects, nestor precompose your comps/layers. Then if you misspell the actress’s name, you can change it easily. Same film. I was so glad I’d organized. Organization is a great thing.
