P.S. Dopada mi se kako argumentuješ stvari "ovima"...
Hi Adis, greetings from Belgrade!
* we have to use English here
so, the question was: how much should one turn down TILVA ROSH trailer that I linked above, so that it would not be too loud in the theater?
The first problem here is - the mix wouldn't be the same - this mix was done on 'crap' speakers - some elements would probably need more dynamics in a theatrical mix (like the swoosh, or the ending music). The second problem is, I've never done a theatrical trailer - there is simply no tradition of theatrical trailers in Serbia, so, based on US trailers that we hear in theaters, and which are typically very loud, I can only guess that, after they are mixed, they are printed as loud as possible, while conforming to the TASA regulation of not exceeding 85 dB Leq(m) (which, in itself is a unit measured by proprietary Dolby algorithm found in Dolby Model 737).
So, the answer is not simple, but once you get to do a trailer mix, the system is simple - you sound design and premix in your studio, you do the final mix at a dub stage where you will find the Dolby Model 737 and you adjust your trailer so that the 737 spits 85 at the end of the pass (it's a measurement with an unlimited integration time, so you get just one number in the end). At least that's how we do commercials (only, the commercials go to 82, not 85). Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
