Putting the O in HBO
Amazon Studios came to us for ADR (automatic dialogue replacement) services for a couple episodes from Season 3 of Transparent. ADR is the process of re-recording dialogue in the studio in synchronization with the picture on the screen.
We scheduled a studio session with Gabby Hoffman, of Fields of Dreams fame, where we connected with the Transparent production team via Source-Connect. This technology allows studios to connect in real time so that visual and audio cues are in sync in both locations. This is paramount to conduct a successful ADR session. From our in-house studio in upstate NY, we're able to connect with studios around the world.
We worked with Gabby and the Transparent team to replace specific dialogue cues, as is customary in film and television. The session was so successful that Transparent came back to finish the rest of the ADR cues for Season 3 and Season 4 through Overit Studios., before going on to win a Cinema Audio Society Award in 2017 for Season 3.
