Top 10 Takeaways
Quick-share concepts from today’s episode:
Voice dubbing is when an actor puts their voice (typically in another language) over another performance on screen.
Actors are not required to know the content’s original language to dub.
Dubbing in other languages requires good acting. #VOBOSS
Voice-dubbing actors watch the clip they are dubbing for and have to match the actor’s mannerisms, breaths + style.
Listening + observing the original performance is the best thing a dubbing actor can do. #VOBOSS
Looping is the same thing as ADR, which stands for Additional Dialogue Replacement. #VOBOSS
ADR is used for the original actors to replace or fix badly recorded dialogue, or for other actors to add dialogue + chatter to scenes.
Flexibility is key in ADR. Often the ADR background scenes will be completely improvised. #VOBOSS
Audio description is when an actor describes a scene along with dialogue to set the scene for those who are not seeing the visuals of a show or movie.
Audio description requires the actor to set the scene for the listener. You are their eyes. #VOBOSS
