By in Video Editing

Mark Franken, founder and lead developer at Sounds In Sync Pty Ltd, has been awarded an Emmy® for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development for his software application EdiCue. The awards will be presented Wednesday evening, October 28, 2015. The Engineering Emmy is presented to an individual, company or organization for engineering developments so significant that they materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television.

In the 67th Primetime Engineering Emmy Award announcement, on September 29, 2015, the Television Academy stated: “EdiCue is established software that incorporates a groundbreaking workflow, which sound supervisors use to reliably create and update ADR cues within Pro Tools. This workflow simplifies the process of re-syncing cues when last-minute picture changes occur, and it uniquely provides visual methods to confirm that the timing of cues is correct. These features, along with the flexibility of EdiCue in interfacing with other tools and cueing systems found on ADR stages around the world, have led to its almost universal adoption by both independent television sound supervisors and major post production studios.”

This video goes behind the scenes with supervising sound mixer Jonah Guelzo as he takes us through the dubbing process for the indie feature film Norman. Jonah explains how he uses the Sounds In Sync range of editor tools to help artists maintain perfect sync and increase efficiency in the Pro Tools post-production workflow. From cueing and recording ADR, to automating tedious re-conforms, Jonah provides helpful insights in using each application with ease.


“EdiCue, EdiPrompt and EdiLoad are an ADR and Sound Supervisor’s best friends no matter the size of the production.”
