The Prince is a short film which follows a day in the life of struggling actor, Michael. Having once played Hamlet in a small travelling production, Michael is hired to give a lecture on the Shakespearean play at a local high school. After sitting in on the lecture, a pair of troublesome girls take to manipulating the tragic actor into helping them with some extra curricular activities.
I worked on this short as location recordist and sound designer. Having been shot on the Red Epic, I wanted to capture the most natural, crisp dialogue possible to work with the stunning image and communicate the comedy of the performance clearly. The sound design for the film is simple and straighforward, supporting the plot and world of the characters.
