Los Angeles, CA (June 9, 2009)–Smart Post Sound recently called on Voice Over There to record additional dialog for an episode of the popular Fox TV series Bones.
Voice Over There placed its soundproof trailer at the Bones base camp 30 miles east of Los Angeles, recorded the urgently needed lines with lead actor David Boreanaz, then sent the audio files via FTP back to Smart Post Sound for the final mix.
“The Voice Over There trailer made it possible for us get the essential lines of dialog in time for the final mix,” said Joe Melody, president of Smart Post Sound. “We’ve used Voice Over There for several episodes of Bones when they’re on location and the actors can’t get into an ADR stage. The trailer allows us to expand the reach and convenience of our sound services.”
David Jeffery, co-producer for Bones, notes not only the convenience of location ADR but also the quality of the sound recording provided by the compact trailer. “Voice Over There is an invaluable and time-saving service for our postproduction,” said Jeffery. “All the recording we’ve done in the trailer blends very nicely with our mix on the stage.”
Ryan Young, sound engineer for Voice Over There, used a Sennheiser MKH 60 to match the microphone used on set, as well as a Sanken COS11 lavalier and recorded each to separate tracks in Pro Tools. Young then used the trailer’s wireless Internet to upload the Pro Tools session to an FTP site for download to the mix stage.
“The difficulty of scheduling dialog pickups inspired the creation of Voice Over There,” explains veteran television director/technical director, Amir Soleimani, who designed the compact VOT trailer. “I wanted to find a convenient, cost-conscious way of accommodating talent in and around Southern California, whether they are at home, on set, or on location. With the VOT trailer, recording sound bytes and making them immediately accessible to post and production companies worldwide, has become a highly-efficient, one-stop process.”
