Dark Blood is a Star Wars fan film produced by PANUCCIO PRODUCTIONS and completed in December 2004. The project as a whole took approximately 2 years from conception to completion. Although being a low budget production, an immense amount of work and time was dedicated towards the final project. Running for a staggering 52 minutes, it was a huge task for us to complete what at times seemed to be an unfinishable project, especially since it was our first time at attempting anything remotely like this. However the lessons and experience learnt throughout the process have proved to be invaluable.

Being the sole sound engineer on the project I had a massive task infront of me. They included:
- Recording dialogue on set.
- Organising recorded dialogue files to be synchronised with edited footage.
- Organising ADR sessions, re-recording over 85% of the film's dailogue and synchronising it with edited footage.
- Arranging entire soundtrack which included: foley, ambience, special sound fx, dialogue, music etc.
- Mixing entire soundtrack to create a constant audio level throughout the entire movie and ensuring that the soundtrack was balanced between dialogue, sound effects and music.

Here are a handful of scenes from Dark Blood which showcase the audio aspect of the film that I solely produced. I have ensured that the audio quality has been kept high to serve that purpose.
