Automated Dialogue Replacement (ADR) Recordists are skilled recording engineers in the film industry specialising in re-recording dialogue and voice overs in studio settings. They address issues arising from imperfect on-location audio, such as environmental noise or script changes, by working with actors to re-record dialogue professionally. ADR recordists possess expertise in acoustics, enabling them to coach actors on tone and pitch, select appropriate microphones, and recreate on-location sound environments. Their schedules revolve around studio sessions, which may extend beyond regular hours, with minimal travel involved. ADR can be a confusing and challenging process for actors, and a good ADR recordist will be communicative, empathetic, and level-headed enough to set the talent at ease and coax out a strong performance.
