On this episode of Post In Black, we discuss the technical side of ADR (automatic dialogue replacement). Bobbi also shares how her journey started as an assistant to the executive assistant at Sound One in New York and how a subsequent series of experiences and opportunities led her to where she is today. While she credits the film Desperately Seeking Susan as her introduction into sound, she also talks about how the motivation for what she does lies heavily in wanting the audience to feel what they're watching through sound.
