20 Aug ADR Recording for BARRY HBO
In 1987 I began producing radio parodies for syndicated radio satirist, Dave Kolin. I built a small studio booth in a tiny space in the film building at 630 Ninth Avenue, to produce these radio spots. I called the studio Itty Bitty Studio. Our work was distributed to the top market radio jocks like Rick Dees in Los Angeles, Scott Shanon in New York, and John Landers in Houston, Texas. We paradise top hits, and I created the tracks , produced the vocals, and final mixes. By accident Michael Bacon was renting the room next door. We met, and I began recording and mixing his underscore music for documentary films seen on PBS. One day Michael asked me if I would help him with demo recordings of songs he was writing with his brother, Kevin. Kevin came in and we have known each other ever since.
Barry is a dark comedy starring Bill Hader as a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life, he reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an aspiring actor. Barry follows his “mark” into an acting class and ends up finding an accepting community in a group of eager hopefuls within the LA theater scene. He wants to start a new life as an actor, but his criminal past won’t let him walk away —can he find a way to balance both worlds?
The eight-episode series also stars Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Glenn Fleshler, Anthony Carrigan and Henry Winkler.
