English dubbing for a feature-length musical film

Dubway has been working on producing the English translation dubbing for a Chinese feature-length musical film.

After the script was translated from Mandarin Chinese into English, Dubway was tasked with adapting the English translation (to match the lip movement of the Chinese characters on screen), casting the many dialog and singing talent, directing the sessions, and delivering the final mix.

VO for Amazon Alexa game "The SpongeBob Challenge"


Dubway recently teamed up with Nick Jr. to record new voice-over content for Amazon Alexa's kids skill game, The SpongeBob Challenge. Engineer Zac Suskevich worked with actor Dan Bittner (That Awkward Moment, Adventureland, Law Abiding Citizen) to bring SpongeBob Squarepants' character to life.

“To engage the kids, we leveraged the rich soundscape of SpongeBob SquarePants by including its iconic music, colorful sound effects, and beautiful, rich audio transitions, not to mention SpongeBob’s crazy laugh,” says Darren Brelesky, senior VP of product and technology at Nickelodeon.

The SpongeBob Challenge, available for download for Amazon Alexa, has more than 80 memory challenges, and is filled with over 70 characters including Patrick, Plankton, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs, as well as hundreds of music and sound effects from the show.

The skill places kids behind the cash register of the Krusty Krab where they take orders from a host of strange but hilarious customers. In each session, kids face three challenges in which they have to remember the details of each customer’s order—no matter how odd the customer’s cravings may be.
