Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

Bang Zoom has 3 different facilities to feed, and with Sony/Funimation gobbling up a major client like Crynchyroll, I assume they're aggressively going after any remaining dubbing work that's still...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

Yes, Sherman worked on those dubs as a consultant for Sunrise. Keep in mind though that that relationship started before Ocean and BZ were direct competitors, possibly before BZ had their own...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

I never fully trust credits. And I don't think there would be anything preventing them from hiring people in Alberta under ACTRA contracts if the situation warrants it. Given the mixed cast we've...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

Hasn't Don been moonlighting for Blue Water for the last decade? If he's in Alberta, and BZ is using someone other than Ocean to record in Vancouver, they might just have written him off as no longer...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

In the 2000s, Animaze was the expensive one, while Bang Zoom, Ocean, New Generation Pictures, Media Concepts, Studiopolis, Elastic Medai, etc. seemed competitive with each other. Arvintel was...

Re: Unknown US dub voice cast for a British 1994 (or '93) holiday TV special?

This post would be better suited for the Whose Voice is This? (https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=101) forum, hopefully a moderator can move it for you.

Anyway, it...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

The Xaolin Chronicles cast is fascinating. I guess you're right, SAG must have conceded the ability of members with Canadian citizenship to work under ACTRA even within its jurisdiction.

"Actors...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

I did see a bunch of My Little Pony entries in the SAG db, but I suppose those might be for other American guest stars. I don't really know the franchise.

It's hard to figure out exactly how this...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

Well, if COVID has crushed the barrier for VAs dubbing from their home studios, that opens up a lot of options. I think it's possible for non-US SAG members to work under their home countries' union,...

Re: What happened to The Comment log after the website updated?

That's too bad, it was a neat feature. Hopefully you can find some way to bring it back. Even if there was some sort of delay before new comments showed up it would sill be useful.

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

Years ago I recall hearing that Ocean had an office in Japan for courting work directly from the anime studios. No idea if they still do, but the Kingdom dub guys does...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

Hasbro was not explicitly credited, but the only non-Ocean/Westwood people in the credits were a bunch of "creative consultants" who I believe were largely Hasbro employees at the time.

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

Huh, I wonder how this came about, it's been a while since Ocean did anything for Hasbro, right? And it looks like a straight Vancouver dub, so cost was presumably less of a concern. Most of Hasbro's...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

I wonder what's Viz's plans for the InuYasha spin-off is. You'd think getting Ocean back would be a given, but I'm not taking anything for granted. How are they likely to debut this anyway? Adult...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

Ah, I guess I haven't paid that much attention to them since most of the time their "new dubs" were actually acquisitions from other companies (and blocked for those of us outside North America.) But...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

One can hope, but it's not looking great... Most of the demand for dubbing is tied up with vendors who are already having their needs covered by inhouse or preferred producers. Anybody know if...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

Yeah, it's nice that they take advantage of what they've got instead of just sending everything to LA. Certainly worked out well for Eidos Montreal when everyone meme crazy for Elias Toufexis...

Re: Are Vancouver dubs going to go extinct?

When Blue Water was established, you needed a fully fledged sound studio with a bunch of expensive professional equipment, an engineering staff, a directors booth, etc. to dub something. During the...
