Life in Sound & Color | The Return of ‘The Great’

July 10, 2023 Jul. 10, 2023

To mark the return of The Great, Colorist Paul Staples and Re-recording Mixer Adam Davidson spoke to Post Perspective about adding color and sound to the third installment of the series.

The Great follows a young Catherine the Great with a not-precisely-accurate look at her rise in 18th Century Russia. Leads Nicholas Hoult and Elle Fanning return to the comedic show.

With any ongoing series like this one, continuity is essential. “With a third series of anything, you need an element of continuity, especially if some of the locations remain the same, but the most important thing is that the sound helps tell the story on screen,” explains Davidson. “Luckily, we’ve had a lot of the same lead team on all three series, and we have a similar taste and ethos on how sound can be used to do that.”
