A Question about shooting serials and dubbing

I just had a discussion with one of my friends the other day about the following, now if we were planning on producing a big-time television historical serial, would we actually need to redub every single conversation that was made and recorded while shooting the serial?

Meaning the recording of the characters conversations using a boom-mic and other types of mics won't be enough? We need to go later on into a recording studio to redub the entire thing again!! For me that sounds like too much work, but in order to produce the serial do we actually need to do that??

We are going to shoot on Digital Betacam by the way.

Cheers...

God no! As long as your production audio is good...has good levels and is clean...then no ADR is needed.

Where did you get the idea that all the audio was replaced by ADR after the fact? it is rarely done...and only done if a section of audio is inaudible, garbled, or somehow difficult to understand.

In CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND, George Clooney had moving sets designed to be completely silent so that when they moved it wasn't picked up while the actor was talking. He HATES ADR (as do I). The actor's performance is what you are aiming for...and their emotions come best while they are acting...not speaking into a microphone in a sound booth.

Your friend has a misunderstanding about TV production and post.
