Editing ADR

After reviewing my footage, it became extremely apparent that I was going to need to do some ADR work, specifically with the opening exchange in the coffee shop. A lot of background noise like people talking and doors slamming can be heard so I really wanted to eliminate these.

I booked an editing suite and sat my actors in there with a sound kit at a time they were available and we went through the lines. We realised that looping clips would help the actors find the rhythm so they could just say the line with the flow. A great perk of the looping is that if the actor messes up the line, they could instantly retake the line in seconds.

I found this process extremely enjoyable because it was refreshing to be with the cast in a comfortable and controlled environment and not really feel the pressure of time when trying to work.
