Automated dialogue replacement (ADR), the post-production process involving actors re-recording or adding dialogue to footage by matching their voices and sounds to the mouth movements and physical gestures they see onscreen, is used in many genres. Cartoons, films, and television series all employ ADR. In live-action film and television, ADR is often used to correct dialog affected by background noise during filming or sound interruptions. Sometimes these corrections are done by voice actors capable of voice matching – sounding like the actor in the picture. In animation as well as live-action, ADR is also needed to do language replacement work – recording the original dialogue in a new language. No matter the reason for ADR, you need an experienced voiced actor to work on these projects. Because at the core, you need an actor, not just a voice, who can cover a whole performance of a character. In addition to being a trained actor, Alex is a skilled improviser, having studied improvisation in New York City and is able to fully embody a character and immerse himself in the world on screen as he provides the dialogue.

You want to work with an actor who can bring your desired personalities and attitudes to your characters just as you imagined them, can take direction quickly and improvise when needed.

Any business, whether they’re just starting out or have been in business for decades, has a primary goal of attracting customers for their products or services. They invest in a commercial to connect with these prospective buyers and start a conversation with them. To make this commercial, they need directors, videographers, copywriters, and composers. Often they consult with an ad agency who helps craft the story. So after all that investment in planning and creation, they need a professional voice talent to bring the project together and give it life. Regardless of the product or service, your commercial should build a connection with customers and share the story of your brand.

And finding the right voice over, the perfect storyteller for your brand, will take your commercial from good to great.
