I've just began my final year of university, doing Digital Media with a specialisation in Sound Design and its time to do my honours project and dissertation.
The general gist is that it's a sound replacement project for film. I rebuild the sound for a short film, then receive feedback from my supervisor, as well as from the creator/original sound designer for the film.
My main problem is that of the films I've found so far, I haven't been able to make contact with the people responsible. The very few that I have been able to make contact with have either not responded to my emails, or they've replied that they do not have the time to commit to another project. There was one positive response, however the person no longer had a copy of the film with just production dialogue in, so obviously that was a no-go.
Is there any advice anybody can give me? Ideally looking for a short film, around 10-15 minutes in length, which definitely is available with just dialogue, nothing else. Any recommended websites/people I should speak to?
At this point I'm desperate after an entire Summer of trying to find someone. Its crunch-time now and I'm already behind.
