Audiobook “HumanKind” by Ashlee Eiland for Penguin Randomhouse

Author Ashlee Eiland in Sound Post’s Studio B.

SEPTEMBER 2020 – We recorded Ashlee Eiland’s new book HumanKind – How Reclaiming Worth and Embracing Radical Kindness Will Bring Us Back Together for Penguin Random House.

 

It was a joy to work with Ashlee for a few summer days to record her great new book. “Ashlee draws on a range of personal experiences to explore how life fashions identity. She reflects on big themes, from the love of family to the brutality of racism and the search for belonging, and calls us to greater awareness of the stories and systems still shaping our lives and communities.”  Jo Saxton, author of The Dream of You.

It’s a wrap! Author and narrator Ashlee Eiland and Sound Post owner and engineer, Stuart Poltrock.

Audiobook “The Lies of Locke Lamora” by Scott Lynch

NOVEMBER 2019 – At Sound Post we’re recording the Gentleman Bastards series of books by Scott Lynch, with award-winning actor and narrator Michael Page for Penguin Randomhouse.  The Gentleman Bastards are elite con artists as well as masters of deception, disguise and fine cuisine.  In ‘The Lies of Locke Lamora,” these ne’er-do-wells rob the rich of the city of Camorr, based on late medieval Venice but on an unnamed world.[2]
Two stories interweave: in the present, the Gentleman Bastards fight a mysterious Gray King taking over the criminal underworld; alternate chapters describe the history of Camorr and the Gentleman Bastards, in particular protagonist Locke Lamora.

ADR – Chicago Fire

Chicago Fire ADR with actor Evan Koons

Sound Post’s Stuart Poltrock with Chicago Fire Actor Evan Koons in Studio A for an ADR session. Notice Evan’s scene on the video monitor.

NOVEMBER 2019 – Sound Post recorded ADR ( dialogue replacement ) with actor Evan Koons. We recorded on Wednesday and the show aired Thursday.

Dialogue replacement (sometimes called ‘dubbing‘) is a necessary step in the audio post production of a feature film.   Often the sound recorded on the set is noisy, not clear, or possibly the director wants to change, add, or replace an actor’s line.  Dialogue replacement is the process for making these changes. At Sound Post we have recorded ADR with actor Edward Herrmann for ‘The Gilmore Girls,’ actor Patrick Muldoon for the film ‘Christmas Town,’ commercials, and many indie feature films.

Audiobook “Introverted Mom, Your Guide to More Calm, Less Guilt, and Quiet Joy” by Jamie C. Martin for Harper Collins

FEBRUARY 2019 – Sound Post worked with Jamie C. Martin to record her audiobook version of “Introverted Mom, Your Guide to More Calm, Less Guilt, and Quiet Joy.” Although Jamie says she enjoys books, tea, and other people, her introverted nature means she may not always answer her phone when it rings. She is the co-founder of SimpleHomeschool.net and has served as its editor-in-chief for over a decade. She also built the Steady Mom site.

 

“Jamie shares vulnerable stories from her own life as well as thoughts from other introverted mothers, letting you know you’re not alone. Her practical suggestions and creative inspiration are enhanced with quotes and insights from four beloved writers–Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen, L. M. Montgomery, and Laura Ingalls Wilder. Together, Jamie and this band of fellow introverts gently point you toward hope, laughter, and joy.”
