Course Overview:

Be it a movie, short film, drama, commercial or even a YouTube video production, your project deserves the best dialogue quality. So when and how do you apply ADR techniques to help you achieve this?

Firstly, ADR stands for Automated Dialogue Replacement. It is the process of re-recording the actor's dialogue in a recording studio (quiet, controlled environment) in synchronisation with the actor's character on screen to improve the sound quality or performance of the original dialogue recorded on set.

This course introduces the fundamentals in ADR recording concept and techniques in accordance with professional audio post-production standards. Learners will navigate through theories, miking techniques, methods to assist actors to adapt to studio recording environment, plugins usage and preparation of cues.

The small class size allows the facilitator to have full engagement with each learner and for the learner to have a personalised learning experience.

Having worked on countless ADR projects, with prominent ones such as Hollywood films Shotgun Wedding and Mortal Kombat, and Disney+ American Born Chinese, our experienced learning facilitators will guide you through the current industry standards and methods to conduct a successful ADR recording in a professional setting.
