ADR with Todd-AO’s Ron Bedrosian

Obtaining optimal sound quality while recording on set can be an arduous task for production sound mixers. Let’s face it, exploding bombs, rapid-fire machine guns, massive tanks and even spaceships can get obnoxiously loud — and they can create challenging sound problems on set. To resolve these issues, Automated Dialogue Replacement (ADR), or the process of re-recording dialogue in post to improve or clarify the diction of the actors, has become an essential part of film and TV production.
