Voice Over for Film
Voice over is critical to the success of film (think dubbing and ADR).
Documentaries, videos, films, Edge Studio has terrific experience, casting and recording voice over for this application.
One of the main factors behind the commercial success of a movie, documentary, or other film, is a voice over. The soundtrack should be clear, without any additional noises, and most importantly – it should make the audience feel a certain way. The best solution to achieve all the above is to order professional voiceovers by the best movie voice over artists. Our team at Edge Studio has extensive experience voicing over movies of all genres: documentaries, fiction, children movies, action movies, comedies, indie movies, and others.
What is voice over in a film and why it matters?
Out of all sounds, which one has the greatest impact on the perception of the movie? The human voice. This is the best reason to turn to professionals. After all, with the artists’ voice tempo, intonation, and emotions, they can shape characters and achieve maximum synchronization with facial expressions and actions.
You can record film voice over during different stages of production and for different purposes:
- Automated dialogue replacement (ADR) is a voice over of original dialogues in movies. The purpose of this process is to improve the quality of the voice track, remove unnecessary sounds, and make speech clearer. Sometimes ADR is used to improve a scene, or to replace a few words in an actor’s line.
- Dubbing is a voice over of a film with the translation of the original dialogues into another language. Our studio works with talented speakers of different languages. You will be able to choose the best candidates during the casting.
- Narration in film is a voice over in a movie that allows you to tell viewers the thoughts of the characters or describe the events taking place on screen during the introduction. This is as important as the characters’ lines in the film.
How films are dubbed in Edge Studio
Step 1. Preparation. We meet with the producers and find out what needs to be voiced over: a short movie, a documentary, a children’s film, a comedy film, or something else. It is also important for us to know what our role will be: ADR, dubbing, intro to a film. How many voice actors are needed, requirements for voice, timbre, intonation, accent are to be discussed during this stage.
Step 2. Selecting a voice. Together with the producers, we conduct a casting of voice-over actors, distribute the roles, and make a recording plan.
Step 3. Recording an audio track. In our studio we regularly record solo or group recordings. At this stage, it is important to maintain an emotional tone and achieve maximum synchronization of the voice with the video image and the movement of the lips of the actor on the screen.
Step 4. Post-production. This is the most time-consuming part of the project, which involves watching the footage, editing the audio track, timing, articulation correction, and synchronization with facial expressions.Request a Quote
