-- 05 November 2002 -- Audio consultancy for Thai soap ...

Soca Asia is currently closely involved in the filming of a brand new drama series (ghost story - ..... ), to be shown on the Thai terrestrial television channel, ITV. The total time for on-location filming will take approximately 4 months to complete. The main aim for involving Soca Asia was to consult and assist in the registration of all the on-location sound, be it ambient or narration and to be closely involved during the post-production process. This generally is a major problem with many local television productions, mainly lacking in quality and clarity of the original sound recordings. All the live recordings are going to be digitally mastered ready for post-production.
