Dubbing is a post-production process used in video and film where original audio is swapped with additional or supplementary audio in a different language and then combined with the original production to create a new soundtrack. Last year, Netflix dubbed 5 million minutes of programming and subtitled 7 million minutes. And, the consumption of dubbed programming increased 120% from 2020 to 2021!
The rise in popularity of foreign-language dramas such as the Korean-language dystopian series "Squid Game" attracted billions of viewers, and dubbing played a key role. For voice actors, it is important to know the methods and techniques required to match the lip movements of the actors on-screen. This article takes a look at the role dubbing plays at Netflix, and includes valuable nuggets from the dubbing and subtitling team at Netflix themselves. Click the link below to read!
