We felt we could tell the story of Dr. Chong and his daily lifestyle through his hands. Why? Given that Dr. Chong’s profession is so hands on it was only fitting. And, it goes much deeper than that. I think the hands really symbolize someone who is in control of all aspects of their life (even driving the car reinforces this metaphor) – control of one’s life equates confidence and success.
Most of Mommy and Me was shot in an apartment in downtown Calgary and we had some issues with traffic noise bleeding into our dialogue tracks. I was very impressed with how I was able to completely remove those sounds using Voice De-Noise and some manual repair on the more problematic sections. One segment in particular had a piece of dialogue covered by the action of actor Carlee Ryski putting a tube of lotion down on the tile countertop. This was easily fixed by manual repair.
