“More nonsense from T— L—-!!!!”
I don’t mean to pick on one individual, but something’s wrong here, especially when he stands as a Membership First Great Protector of The Proletariat
while getting goddamn rich in his TWO pension$ – at YOUR EXPENSE. To borrow a phrase from the ubiquitous M– M—: “What’s wrong with you little piggies?” Fighting for a dollar here and a slot there and a meal penalty over here (“Oh, dear, they’re not enforcing the rules”), when YOU should be going for what is rightfully YOURS. You’re the ones on screen, you’re the ones who’re seen, why aren’t YOU spending a day or two every week in a studio “session” doing the ADR work that is rightfully YOURS, making the sounds that are supposedly coming out of your characters?
“Earth to T.L if you are an actor, who is a regular on a long running hit series like M—M— and there are any of your lines, of any consequence, that have to be looped, you will loop your own lines.”
Hell, that’s where the BG residual pool is! If you’re going to give in to a closed & secret club, a few *noted* wranglers of ADR voices, how do you really expect to be treated when it comes to negotiations?
T— L —-
“And here is what our befuddled poster is basing his knowledge of ADR work on.”
T.L.: I have not done ADR work since ‘way back when I was starting to act professionally.
: Ah, according to his IMDb page that was back in 1964!!!! Look, I have done off camera sportscasters, newscasters and Disc Jockeys–and have been privileged to have spent a lot time on an ADR stage with a lot of ADR actors, and have been blown away by their improvisational talents, dedication to research, and hard work. And anyone who states that all you have do is mutter, “peas and carrots, rhubarb rhubarb” is well NUTS!!!
