I am preping for a film mix in my small studio and just was calibrating the speakers but with my small monitors i can't reach the SPL required. SO i decided to reference with a DVD dialogue track at various moods and to reach a dialogue level which is comfortable for us and then mix MX and FX around it.
We are primarily planning for DVD release but also planing for a preview show in a nearby cinema hall. SO just wanted to check how my mix levels would be and any checkpoints i have to look for.
Please share your comments and tips.
