Not soon after working with the great Jeffrey Donovan we got a call from another Film Studio in need of our services but this time for famed Aussie actor Jai Courtney.
Mr. Courtney is currently also in the Worcester area filming Honest Thief along with Jeffrey and Liam Neeson. A film about a bank robber (Neeson) that tries to turn himself in because he’s falling in love and wants to live an honest life…but when he realizes the Feds (Courtney) are more corrupt than him, he must fight back to clear his name. Yup, sounds exactly like a Neesom flick.
According to Wikipedia Jai started his career with small roles in films and television series before being cast as Charlie in the action film Jack Reacher. He went on to star in A Good Day to Die Hard, The Divergent Films (Eric Coulter) I, Frankenstein, Suicide Squad (Captain Boomerang) and The Exception.
Jai came into Fontanez Recording to do some ADR which stands for “Automated” or “Automatic” Dialog Replacement. We’ve spoken at length about this recently but you can learn more here.
The ADR was needed for an upcoming Australian animated film called “100% Wolf” by production company Flying Bark Productions, a most appropriate name if I’ve ever seen one; in it Jai plays the role of Freddy’s dad, the main character in the film.
Fontanez Recording worked along side the film’s producer Todd Resnick who flew in from LA for the session and the director who Skyped all the way from the land down under.
Of working with Jai, Alejandro Fontanez (Sound Engineer) says that it was an extreme pleasure and was really impressed with how humble and down to earth Mr. Courtney was. “We are most excited to see our work on the big screen” he continued.
