The French comedy film Le Dindon (The Turkey) is in the final stages of post-production, and Dubway has been proud to host some of that work.  Le Dindon is an adaptation of a 1951 French film of the same name, itself an adaptation of a 19th century play by the early vaudevillian playwright Georges Feydeau, and stars Jessica Sherman, Holt McCallany, Dany Boon, and Alice Pol.  Jessica Sherman was in-studio for the day, doing lines and additional voice acting remotely with the directorial team in Paris, with Dubway engineer Keenan DuBois handling the recording.

Le Dindon is hilariously funny, gorgeously shot, and is currently scheduled for a 2019 theatrical release in France (it may screen in select US theaters) – stay tuned!

Dubway’s Merter Yildirim has been busy at work digitizing the personal recording collection of famed photogropher Philippe Halsman, whose work includes some of the most striking portraiture of the 20th century. Halsman was an avid recordist, and the large collection of reel-to-reel tapes and acetates includes a mixture of recorded lectures, home recordings, and conversations with other artists, friends, and family.

Philippe’s grandson Oliver Halsman Rosenberg will be using the archived recordings as part of an upcoming biopic project on his grandfather’s life and work.

Merter’s digitizing process for this project has been multi-format, and has given him the opportunity to use a variety of Dubway’s digitizing technology and devices, which include machines by Studer, Teac, Otari, and more. For a complete list, visit our Main Floor Equipment page.
