Why does ADR get a bad reputation especially amongst actors and directors who say “it just doesn’t work” or “it is never as good as the original”? In my experience, bad ADR primarily comes down to the performance of the actor in the studio on the ADR record day but there are other factors that can play a part. Are the correct mics being used? It is a properly sized room and a good team of people present on the record day? These will always help make sure bad ADR won’t happen as long as the talent is on form.

“Music is a part of life,” reveals “Black Panther” composer Ludwig Goransson in our exclusive webcam interview (watch the video above). “In our tradition you play music to perform,” he explains. “In Africa you play music as part of life. It’s tradition, it’s rituals, you play music to embody what you’re going through in life.”

Visually, the animated movie “Isle of Dogs” relies heavily on Japanese influences, but Alexandre Desplat had a very different idea when it came to film’s score. “What we decided on this one was to avoid, aside from the taiko drums, there’s no other folkloric instruments,” he tells us in a recent chat (watch the video above). He elaborates on the power that the taikos provide, saying they “are strong enough and they have such a range of sounds, frequency and dynamic that it can do a lot.” Desplat surrounded the taiko drums with instruments such as saxophones, recorders, French horns and the double bass in order to keep the rest of the score in our own contemporary world. “Even though it’s set in Japan, it keeps the world of music in our own.”

Hans Zimmer has “a strange history” with “Widows.” Early in his career he worked for composer Stanley Myers, including on the 1983 BBC miniseries that would inspire the 2018 film. “I remember thinking at the time this was a revolutionary bit of storytelling,” he recalls. It concerned “the sort of casual brutality women have to endure on a daily basis.” He felt the series could “change the way we treat women,” so when Steve McQueen approached him about scoring this reimagining, he leapt at the opportunity because “things had not gotten better.” Watch our exclusive video interview above.

The Sennheiser Memory Mic is a “wireless” mic/body recorder that auto-synchronizes audio that it records with the companion app that can shoot video. In fact, the device hardware is much better than the first version of the companion app for both Android and iOS, so Sennheiser will hopefully add the missing features to the apps. Then it could become the dream solution for today’s producers who want to to produce a Candid Camera type show. Allen Funt first created the Candid project for radio as The Candid Microphone in 1947, before launching the Candid Camera TV show in 1948. Ahead you’ll hear and watch Sennheiser Memory Mic audio/video recordings and learn what’s missing (and wrong) from the first version of the software.

Widows is a different type of film for director Steve McQueen. Known for terrific dramas such as Shame, Hunger, and the Academy Award-winning 12 Years A Slave, McQueen’s films have never been about mainstream appeal. That’s about to change. Viola Davis leads the ensemble of Widows, a heist-film that includes a group of women who must complete a robbery to survive. A debt was left to them by their late husbands who did not complete a heist of their own.
