The technical definition of Automated Dialogue Replacement, also referred to as “looping”, is the process of re-recording audio for purposes including improving audio quality or reflecting dialogue changes. But it’s so much more of an artistic challenge than that. It’s replacing a lead actor’s voice or bringing the characters in the background to life through improvised dialogue. Sound interesting? It should, since it represents yet another huge set of opportunities for working voice actors. The first half of this lab helmed by ADR veteran Ned Lott will focus on learning the ADR process with some exercises to prepare for spontaneous and improvised acting. Then you’ll put your newfound knowledge to the test in the belly of the beast and virtually go into an actual ADR studio in Burbank to work on numerous ADR skills including streamer vs. beeps, walla, listen and do, callouts, follow the line, assigned dialogue and sound-a-likes. Don’t know what these things are? You will after this action-packed day.
