Archiving and Backing Up the Final Mix

Once your mix is completed, it is time to properly back up and store your data for possible future use. Carefully consider the possible uses for this material. For instance, foreign language versions of a film or television show might require a different set of foley tracks. The reason for this is that some foley elements are captured along with the dialog when it is recorded on the set. As that dialog is being removed for a dubbed foreign language version, certain foley elements might need to be included in order to replace those lost with the dialog tracks. If a movie is to be subtitled in a foreign language, most likely the original print master will be used as only the visuals will be altered.

It is a common practice to gather additional foley sounds while recording in anticipation of a foreign language dub of the film. When you are creating mix stems, you might need to create an alternate foley mix stem to compensate for the elements lost with dialog tracks. This foley mix stem would have to be archived in a proper format so that it is clear what it should be used for. Paperwork is boring but necessary.
