Post-Production Coordinator

As in principal photography, post-production of a film or television show combines the efforts of numerous artistic and technical departments. While it is the director’s role to oversee the creative completion of the project, the post-production coordinator acts as a logistical watchdog, ensuring each facet is operating efficiently toward completion.

Voice-Casting Director

What does a friendly and optimistic talking frog sound like? How about a troublesome yellow 10-year-old? Just about anyone aware of pop culture could give you their best Kermit the Frog or Bart Simpson impression or perhaps enact Yoda having a conversation with Bugs Bunny. What these memorable characters all have in common is a distinctive voice that is inextricably linked to the image audiences carry in their minds. So, how does one go about achieving such a perfect pairing of personality and voice?

Pitching Voices: Terri Douglas

Terri Douglas can find someone who sounds just like you. Give her the proper tools—a recording of your voice, for instance—and she could find a voice actor to provide an exact match and then hire him or her to, say, call your parents and have a nice little chat. Fortunately, Douglas uses her powers for good. As a voice-casting producer and manager of the Loop Troop, her own loop group, Douglas is often called upon to find voice matches for famous actors or characters.

Assistant Dialogue Editor

On a lucky day, the average film may require only a few minutes of replacement dialogue to substitute for unusable audio recorded during principal photography. Then there are those films that necessitate a great deal of ADR because of added special effects or particularly challenging environmental conditions where ADR editors may be working on replacement tracks in the double-digits. When a single ADR editor winds up with a massive workload, he or she often relies on an assistant to keep the process organized and efficient.
