Moving back to Hungary after 20 years of audio post-production work in Hollywood, the good news was that I began getting calls for ADR sessions in Budapest.

The bad news was that the "cue lists" for these sessions consisted of nothing more than the lines to be recorded highlighted on the original scripts with ballpark timecode references.

I gradually persuaded my new clients to allocate more time and money to prep the cue lists so the ADR sessions could be run more efficiently. But even though better- prepped scripts started coming in, the reference media files continued to arrive at the last minute, meaning that the markers and three-beeps sync had to be placed manually, often shortly before sessions.

After a few years of dealing with these issues, I began ADR work with the principal cast of the "Strike Back" TV series. Their London-based studio partner would prep scripts in EdiCue and send MIDI files to be imported into Pro Tools. Thus, I would need to begin using EdiPrompt to coordinate with them.

In a few days, I had gotten a grip on the program, thanks to the no-nonsense 15- minute tutorial and well-laid-out interface of EdiPrompt itself. It was a major departure from the sluggish, inefficient systems I used until then—a real game changer.

Ever since - as the sole user of EdiPrompt, in Hungary - I have run ADR sessions at Korda Studios, for Strike Back (TV), Britannia (TV), Brief Encounters (TV), The Last Kingdom (TV), Quarry (TV), The Martian (Feature), The Borgias (TV), Mars (TV), Equals (Feature), The Secret Scriptures (Feature), The Terror (TV), and The Magnificent Seven (Feature), just to name a few.

Thanks Mark, for EdiPrompt!
