EdiPrompt is an application that allows ADR and foley recordists to cue their actor or artist in a way that they are most comfortable with. EdiPrompt does this by providing a range of highly customisable visual and audio cues.
EdiPrompt was developed by Mark Franken the founder and chief developer at an Australian company soundsinsync.
Proud to be - at least as of today - the only user of this fantastic software in Hungary.
At this stage only my international clients use it. The quickest way to load cues into the EdiPrompt Cue List window is to create or import third-party cues with their Emmy® award-winning application EdiCue.
The application EdiLoad can also be used in conjunction with EdiPrompt to generate files that trigger visual cues at picture and scene change points for foley walkers.

Luke Evans (Gaston - "Beauty and the Beast" 2017) who's shooting in Hungary right now, came to Korda to recorded several character voices for a successful animated series titled: Robot Chicken.

The Last Kingdom (Season 2) ADR recording with Ian Hart for Eps. 5,6,7 & 8 at Korda Studios
January 30, 2017
Ian Hart graced Korda's ADR stage with his presence (Korda Studios - www.kordastudio.hu) to re-record some lines for his "The Last Kingdom" role and we had a great time. (as we always do :) Some people know Ian (beside his other superb performances) as Professor Quirinus Quirrell from the 2001 hit, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone". He is an awesome guy, who's tremendously passionate about his "TLK" TV character, Beocca. Also, someone, who tells it like it is. (Just ask the directors Richard Senior and Jamie Donoughue and our Supervising Sound Editor Jack Gillies... ;))
...on the technical side...for remote monitoring, we were connected via Source Connect with "Jumbuck" in London. (http://www.jumbuck.co.uk/) ...for ADR wipes I was using soundinsync's Ediprompt.
Puppetworks Animation Studio - Completed Sound Post for a "Lords Mobile" project
December 22, 2016
Just before Christmas I've completed the sound design, sound editorial and Final Mix/Mastering for a Puppetworks Animation Studio (Budapest-Hungary) created "Lords Mobile" project. World class visuals, were complemented by matching audio ;)
This year's ELTE/BFA's (Budapest Film Academy) four shorts sound post production was completed on 12/04/2016
December 04, 2016
In 2016 the students of ELTE/BFA (Budapest Film Academy) made four shorts. As it happened in the previous years, the scripts grabbed the attention of some of Hungary's leading actors and actresses. This year - just to name a few - Judit Pogany, Gabriella Hamori, Peter Rudolf and Gabor Reviczky decided to act in them.
Due to extremely short deadline (and budgetary constraints :) the quality location sound allowed me to use only the necessary amount of noise reduction (on the most problematic files/segments) apply frequency response modifications sporadically, more extensively though sound editorial tricks to salvage about a dozen dialogues - which normally would be ADR'd and a minimalist sweetening approach (adding mainly ambiance as needed - to add more realism and smooth cuts within scenes with vastly different acoustic fingerprints) and of course Hungary's upcoming film soundtrack composer Gabor Nagysolymosi's fantastic music score.
The final mixes's review and mastering was done at Korda's Wild Tracks studios. Special thanks for Korda's Managing Director Gyorgy Rajnai for his contribution for providing the facility virtually for free.
Find out more about theses short on imdb. under: Memmod (2016), Szurkehalyog [Cataract] (2016), Jatsszunk szerelmest [Let's Play Lovers] (2016), Megerdemlem [I deserve it] (2016)
After a very busy but fun filled month, the Sound Post Production of the English and Hungarian versions of Leslie Mandoki's Red Rock Productions "Sensucht Nach Freiheit" documentary is complete.
November 21, 2016
In the documentary "Sensucht nach Freiheit" the artist, musician and filmmaker Leslie Mandoki - born in Hungary, but as a German citizen currently living in Germany - interviews some of the "pesti sracok" (boys of Pest) - heroes of the October 23rd 1956 Hungarian Revolution - along with known German and Hungarian public figures, politicians and musicians about what this historical event means to them and what they think or believe how this armed conflict shaped Europe and the rest of the world ever since.
During the making of these versions, the process involved coordinating the work of several Hungarian, German and English language translators, lecturers, over a dozen local and foreign actors and actresses and three sound studios to record, edit and mix/master the VO's with the interviews, SFX and music from the original German version.
Fantastic week in Quebec, Canada attending as "Associate Producer" at the 2016 Cartoon Connection event, pitching "Dirty Fred Strikes Back" full evening 3D animated cartoon.

The story of "Dirty Fred Strikes Back:
Aided by a mate famed for his punch, a golden boy with more money than sense sets out on an expedition to track down an explorer who vanished off the map but his perfect plan gets turned on its head by a pretty Polynesian maiden and the maniacal machinations of the uncrowned king of crime.

Recording Jack an upcoming star who made his marks in nearly two dozen films already was awesome. Very accommodating, humble but a real pro. Special thanks to her Mum, Tara for her kindness, who - as the director of "Anabasis Films Limited - was attending the session. Listening Jim's directing Jack over Source Connect from Ireland was a a blast and reassured me, that the "BIG" ones are indeed in the league of their own...Again, thanks for all and of course a high five for my colleagues Peter and Robert at "Windmill Lane Studios" in Dublin.
