Brick by tiny brick… ADR, 08-26-2012

Posted in Post-production on August 26, 2012 by gtpmsm

Epic ADR session today– Epically short that is… a new record.  Only 30 minutes.  But you build what you can, brick by little brick.  So, a lot of people have asked what does ADR stand for?  It stands for Automatic Dialog Replacement, which is a little deceiving because there is nothing automatic about it.  Some people also call it “looping” which is a more accurate term when it comes right down to it.  The line is looped.  The actor / actress performs it over and over until they nail it– synced, performed, enhanced if possible.  I’ll probably still keep calling it ADR though… some habits just die hard.   With Errol McLendon and John Waelti.

Color grading the Diner Scenes

Color grading is tricky business.  You can change look and feel of a scene with a few clicks of a button, or so I’m told by William J. Meyer, the VFX wizard, title creator and colorist on Main Street Meats.  Here are some sample screen grabs before and after color grading.  The screenshots on the top are the finals, and the ones on the bottom are raw.
