The Joys of ADR

Yesterday we did ADR with Steve Dineen, who plays Paul, an itinerant tie-monger. OK, "Top Regional Sales Consultant, Southwestern Region". As with all ADR sessions - a few weeks ago with Adam Napier, today with Sally Scott - the pleasure of all this hard work is when the actors can contribute a slightly fuller intonation than in the original. It means that not only is the sound naturally greatly improved, but the emotional content of a scene is, too. You start to see your own script in a slightly different light, realising how even the simplest of words can carry hidden weight. Even the line quoted below!

"We've got a website. Under construction. My tie's on the homepage!"
