Did you know that there are currently no commercially available sound libraries of women’s voices exclusively? So, what do you do when you are challenged with creating the sound for Mrs. America, an American drama mini-series starring Cate Blanchett, set in the 1970’s?
Scott Gershin, Sound Supervisor and Sound Designer at Sound Lab, a Keywords studio, and his Walla group, Mark Sussman, Patty Connolly and Erin Myles from The Loop Squad held a live panel discussion. They told the tale of how they carefully planned the recording of the voices of Mrs. America, only to be foiled by Covid-19 and the new social distancing mandate. They shared how they went from recording in a specifically selected ADR studio for episodes 1-8 to suddenly needing to record literally “in the actors’ closets” at home during Covid-19, to complete the show’s finale episode.
How did they keep it all together, meet the scheduled deadline and maintain the creative quality of the previous episodes? Watch now to find out.
