Dubbings and Techniques
Dubbing with Hare's Mask
Hare’s mask is probably the most used and most effective with infinite blends of guard hairs and underfur, creating bodies of complex shades and textures that are unrivalled. The hare dubbing (or pine squirrel) can be dubbed directly or used in a dubbing loop, but a better result comes from tossing a select bunch in the coffee grinder and bumping the button for just a second to get a better blend. In fact, It’s hard to resist tossing any of the dubbings in the grinder to get an incredibly soft mix. In regards to hare in particular, you’ll want to understand the possibilities of selecting very specific amounts and hair types from the mask to achieve results to the degree that which you are actually interested. The next obsessive step is to blend these material materials according to tone and texture to continue to explore the possibilities. I think that kind of investigation is beyond my scope at this point. I’ll do well to
cover as much as I have already promised.
Dennis Shaw - Dubbing Tutorial Resource
If you have not seen Dennis Shaw’s tutorial of dubbing techniques and information you are in for a treat. I would not pretend to provide a more thorough resource than what he has put together so please refer to his document.
I will continue to add to this section in trying to make my site more specific to my own uses. Please go see this and some of his other SBS material.
Dennis for such a brilliant resource.
