Our Cinema Arts Freshman, Sophomores and Juniors had the unique and exciting opportunity to visit The Walt Disney Studios and visit the legendary Stage B, the premier ADR (Automated dialogue Replacement) recording facility in the industry. Our student filmmakers gained firsthand insight into the intricate process of re-recording dialogue and worked with some of the best sound engineers in the world re-recording dialogue from the Pirates of the Caribbean: Stranger Tides.
ADR is an art. Stage B, known as Disney’s premier “Dialogue Stage” is where all the character voices of Disney’s classic films are recorded. Notable films include Lady and the Tramp, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and The Jungle Book.
Our students had the privilege of collaborating with the esteemed Doc Kane, a true luminary in the field of sound. With a career spanning over 500 projects and boasting an impressive array of accolades, including four Academy Award nominations, Doc Kane's expertise is unparalleled. His recent projects include Soul, Raya and the Last Dragon, WandaVision, Encanto, West Side Story, and Spider-Man: No Way Home. The opportunity to learn from such a seasoned professional enriched our students' understanding of the intricacies and artistry of sound in film.
