The museum officially opened to the public on April 14, 2023.  It honors Earhart’s aviation legacy and inspires all generations in the pursuit of flight.
Immersive STEM exhibits will take visitors through Earhart’s adventurous life — from growing up in Atchison, Kansas, to the height of her worldwide fame — as the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

I was fortunate to record the audio for this immersive STEM exhibit. They brought in an actress and shot on our green screen. Dry hot lights flood the set as near silence falls. Amalia Earhart’s voice is a raspy high pitch tone of certainty. Her moments of uncertainty trail off “but” still in reach of my mic pre. On the other side of the glass, I’m sending an additional mix to my client at the request of my client’s client, when the director yells cut.

We proceeded that way for a couple of hours before heading to my vocal booth to record passages from Amelia Earhart’s diary. Amalia in the vocal booth, two producers seated comfortably behind me at the talkback button. Try it again, a little more relaxed like you’re writing it down, and I’m ready when you are. Great job, that it stretches from the back of the control room into Amalia’s headphones. After a small celebration, I gather all the notes the producers and I have.

While they may not use every visual take, every take of audio has the potential to see the light in the post. My notes revealed that was the case. Even so, I delivered this audio to my client by 5 pm on the same day.

My wife is from Atchison, so this project has a special connection for my family and me. I can’t wait to walk through The new Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum with my family, listening to all of my work. Living the dream.
