Director Tweets! Water For Elephants “getting closer” to completion

Francis Lawrence gave Water For Elephants fans another update in the film making process. A refresher in case you don’t know what some of the tweet means:

Color: this has to do with giving your film a certain tint. Color correction. This can change the mood of a film. Warm tints (reds) versus cold tints (blues). We discussed it in our post-production post. Click HERE to recap.

ADR: we’ve discussed this before but in case you missed it, ADR stands for automated dialogue replacement, “dubbing”.

Rodrigo: this is Rodrigo Prieto, the director of photography/cinematographer. Looking back at our post-prod post, I chuckled at an excerpt:

The cinematographer will make sure the film has the color desired. Ryan added his two cents (much like this entire post) and felt Francis would be sitting in during this process due to his background in music videos and his eye for that aesthetic. Interesting theory.

A theory proven :)

And that’s that! Oh…there’s the bit about Jacob.

Jacob: some character in Water For Elephants ;)

    I was wondering what “ADR” was, and… now I know! :)

    Hopefully we will see anything of this Jacob guy in the next few day… I miss him!

        I work in dubbing, so I’ll chime in for a sec. ADR can be dubbing or looping, but it’s all post-production synchronization work.

        When ADR is done to replace a performer’s voice with a voice artist speaking a different language, it’s commonly called “dubbing.”

        When ADR is done to rerecord the original dialogue to make it clearer and easier to understand, with the original actor his/herself respeaking the dialogue, this is often referred to in the U.S. as “looping.”

    Very educational. I remember when I first learned about color. It was when someone asked if the color for “New Moon” should be the same as “Twilight,” which had a blue tint. Color really does set the mood. Thanks for the reminder.
