I didn't say it was cheap or easy. But it is
a problem, and it's not just a technical weakness. If he's really that plugged into the film community, and the entire community holds him up as a golden god the way he says it does, I imagine he can go ahead and put on his producer hat and find someone to make the audio less of a jarring hurdle. Or if not, that's fine too, but the actors have
to know this and enunciate as needed and modulate their voice levels as appropriate. If they're supposed to be angry and put punctuation on words, if they're supposed to be shouting, they must look
as though they're shouting without actually
hollering the words out. If they're supposed to be whispering, they're going to have talk in a stage whisper, not a real
whisper. It's called acting and stagecraft.

The follies which a man regrets the most in his life are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity. - Helen Rowland, A Guide to Men, 1922
