MASTER THE ART OF DUBBING | 430 W CYPRESS ST. GLENDALE, CA 91204
Dubbing is the art of recreating a film or TV program in a different language than the original content. A quality dub not only provides seamless lip-syncing but also localizes the product for its intended audience. Simple language translation is insufficient, the content must be customized for its new specified audience and take into account cultural mindsets and nuances like colloquialisms, jokes, character archetypes and regional references.
It is our goal to equip our students with the tools to master all of these things while delivering compelling performances. The ability to take on a character and story with foreign origins and make it relatable to audiences in a different region all the while maintaining the integrity of the original story and the essence of the original characters, is a quintessential sign of an effective dubbing artist and a cornerstone of our philosophy.
