In the year 1534, Jacques Cartier to 20 days to sail from France to the east coast of Canada. In the year 2021, a Canadian film or TV only need one click on the button to travel around the world. For content creators such as Chris Pearn, born and raised on a goat farm in Southern Ontario, the idea is very interesting.
Artist's animation is film director Canadian-American "Willoughby," based on the same Name Lois Lowry and released last April on Netflix. It focuses on the four children leave the parents of their selfish and go in search of the true meaning of family.
The cast includes Canada as Martin Short, Sean Cullen and singer Alessia Cara, as well as us-born Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, Crews Terry and Jane Krakowski. The Comedian English Ricky Gervais plays a tabby cat blue talk and serve as narrator.
"A week after the release of the movie, my friends all over the world send me the top 10 shows of the film as the # 1 or # 2 on the banner-the UK, Australia, France, India, etc . For some reason, I worked a lot in the press in Portugal. I also hear it's big in Brazil, " said Pirn, who Credits also include cloudy with a chance of Meatballs 2, Open Season, and Titan A. E.
"The style of physical comedy and animation width seems to be in accordance with European audiences very well . In America, we are very good to the children, especially the twins, and in the Uk, we are very fond of the old man, although they are bad. Glad to see a lot of things travel.”
Of course, while visual project generally universal, Netflix should prepare the film for the international market-a process that involves searching for a voice actor, record the dialog of the new brand, and added text to make it really can be translated.
With Willoughby, for example, Netflix is working with 30-dubbing and recording studios around the world, each of which collect creative team then selected a voice actor.
"Action Dubbing is a unique skill in itself, as an actor should not be excelled in acting, character development, and performance, but also have the technical skills and the necessary time for the people dubbing, and it really only comes with experience," said a spokesman Netflixes.
"Not like the movies or cinemas traditional, there's a little bit of preparation actor before recording. On the other hand, the Director of the Sound will prepare significantly ... actors see and hear parts of the film, and then they record themselves. The timing must be very precise, so that the consonants, breath, and stop adjust the lip movements of the original actors.”
For Pirn, see the Willoughbys embrace the identity of the different global is a journey-literally and figuratively. She met with the Director of Netflix International dubbing Daniel Labaun and Greg Faust on stage sound farm Skywalker in California and got the idea of casting for each character of the film.
"For me personally, it's really nice to hear the song Jane Willoughby from the Final film carried out in Swedish, French, Cantonese, Japanese, Italian, etc.It is very beautiful to hear the melody translated into different languages with the actress of different play characters created by Alicia Kara in English,"he said.
"There are some moments when we have to explain the meaning of the joke or the dialogue, but I always felt safe in their hands, because I can tell that they care about the film. After the release in April, I really play around with the settings Netflix I can only hear the movie in a language that is available for us here in Canada.”
In general, dubbing a film typical can take anywhere from 20 to 40 working days, depending on the density of the script, the size and Schedule of the Player, and such a complex song. The text of the Working Professionals are native speakers and translate the dialogue together with the dubbing. Netflix then launch the international version of the project in dozens of languages at the same time with most of the English program is original.
"If we do our job correctly, the Theme of family, dysfunction, and the need for communication is universal ... whatever the Language, skin color, or religion, " Pearn said the family of Willoughby .
"It's very interesting to watch the film the Trip and it's always interesting to see how to connect with audiences around the world. I think to keep things to a minimum, the larger the audience, the better.”
