What is the Director's Role?
Audio post teams usually consist of a director, talent, engineer and producer.
Before the session, the director usually goes through the material and marks places on the script that could be an issue and points them out before recording.
The producer is briefed on the project and expectations and he or she "runs" the session with the director.
The talent is the person who is performing the voice-over.
The director is in charge of the script, makes sure that the brief is clear to the talent and engineer, and translates the interaction between producer and/or client and the talent, in case the talent doesn't speak or understand the respective languages.
The director role can be amplified with a solid understanding of audio post technology like Pro Tools, VoiceQ, etc.
The director makes sure that the talent reads properly, with correct intonation, pronunciation, articulation of certain words and proper names, and maintains the style of the original language.
The director will also suggest copy changes, correct the talent if they make a mistake, and make suggestions on how to re-read a section in case the producer or client wants a different read.
The director is there to guarantee the quality of the voice-over, as he or she is familiar with the original language.
The group works together as a team to produce high-quality dubbing whether that be for feature films, corporate training videos, promotional materials, educational series, etc...
