'Dialog' in Post Production

 

Most stories are told through narrative, so the dialog is the most important part of the soundtrack. It carries through the message of the film (regardless of what format it's in: it can be a feature, a documentary, a commercial, etc). Because of its pivotal role, producers will deal with it first. 

 

 

Where does the dialog come from?

Most of the time, there is a guide track included in the film or video work-print. This guide track usually contains production dialog recorded on location at the time of the shoot, where little attempt was made to produce a quality track. As a result, what you hear will most likely need to be replaced by the post engineer (a process called Automated Dialog Replacement, or ADR). Also additional dialog lines maybe recorded afterwards, especially when a narrator is involved, as in the case with many commercials. This type of dialog is called Voice-Overs.

 

 

Wild lines, voice-overs (VO), and announcers...

A wild line is a dialog element that was not recorded in sync to an image. It's usually recorded with the session not locked to picture. Because of this, is up to the editor to choose its placement.

 

Typical wild lines are:

- Actors' lines delivered off camera or where you cannot see their lips.

- A person reading a copy of the scripted lines while an image is playing (called voice over, or VO for short).

- An announcer speaking.

 

In all of these situations, you cannot see the person's lips as he or she speaks the lines, so the exact location cannot be determined from the image.
