"Mad Dogs" is now on Amazon Prime! Back in November, actor Steve Zahn was in the studios of Dynamix recording a significant amount of dialog replacement lines (ADR) for the new series.
Many television shows and movies require dialog to be re-recorded because of noisy locations, script changes, or performance tweaks. ADR involves the actor watching the scene to be fixed on a video screen while performing the new lines again. Precise synchronization, count-in cues, and microphone placement are paramount to success. During the "Mad Dogs" session, Dynamix was connected in real time over ISDN with director Adrian Shergold and Sony Pictures. Using timecode, video playback was simultaneously synchronized with Zahn's dialog in both Kentucky and California.
Mad Dogs synopsis:
