Everything in the world today is being translated so a larger audience gets to experience it. Now you don’t necessarily have to rely on subtitles to watch foreign films. This is of course with the increase of dubbing that is involved in the industry involving audio material and videos has made it able for you to watch a lot of things that were made in regional foreign languages in a language that is more comfortable to you.
For an example Indian voice over artists are used to dub Hollywood films a lot now. This makes it possible for them to release Hollywood films in Hindi right alongside their world premieres. So you don’t have to wait a long time to watch the dubbed edition of the film. This is all with the target of reaching the largest audience possible. I mean some people have a permanent dubbing staff on their employment to make this work faster.
But of course it is not something that is easy to do it takes a lot skill to do. So if you have hopes of being an Indian voice over artists keep in mind that it won’t be easy there is a lot of timing and precision involved in this field. For an example when you are dubbing what you are saying needs to synchronize with the actors lips as much as possible I mean this may not be the case with audio clips but when it comes to video it matters a lot. Nobody wants to watch something that is a shoddy dubbing. This will ruin the whole experience of watching that particular video. Of course it doesn’t stop there, that is to say when there expressions and motions involved it gets even trickier to do. You need to have a lot of concentration for the job as I said earlier.
Now for a lot of people the biggest thing that is an issue is whether they will get paid. Not many people know this but this is a field that is quite well paid. Of course this would depend on the company or people that you work for but you can make a very decent amount of money pursuing a career in the field. Now some people would be skeptical about actually what kind of work they might end up having to or rather if there are a lot of jobs in the market for this kind of work. The truth is there are so many opportunities that you could chase. People use dubbing for things like advertisements, documentaries etc. like I said it is quite popular now. Just to give you another example, some companies make a single commercial for a region and then dub it appropriately. This saves them the money of having to redo one for each country. All in all this is an up and coming field right now which is an amazing career to pursue.
