I have recently been shooting in the south of England for a period drama independent film. The on-location sound is quiet enough for the indoor scenes and dialogue is nice and clear without traffic and planes.
But outside is a complete nightmare for this-even the hint of traffic spoils the illusion.
My question is- what do location recordists usually do on period dramas? I imagine the roads are closed on big productions, or is everything simply ADR, atmos and foley?
