Dub budgets getting continually smaller

Filed under: News — drakh @ 2:11 pm

According to reports from Sakuracon, New Generation Pictures announced at their panel that budgets offered to them by anime distributors had gotten so low that they felt they no longer could produce dubs for them without a significant drop in quality, and as such have had to pass on new anime projects. This follows similar statements from other industry members over the recent years, and was specifically mentioned by Marc Handler as the reason for ZRO Limit and Animaze losing the dominating position they had in the late 90s to early 00s, in spite of fan acclaim of their work.

With far fewer titles being licensed and dubbed now compared to previous years, and Singapore emerging as a low cost outsourcing destination, offering dubbing, subtitling and DVD authoring all-in-one, this trend will likely continue as competition between current dubbing companies grows increasingly fierce.
