Kongchak Pictures and Studio are searching for talented actors to bring a fresh and exciting twist to film dubbing in Cambodia. Break free from the usual acting path and discover a whole new way to make your mark on the silver screen. Whether you’re young or old, your unique voice matters. Join us today and let your talent soar in this thrilling adventure.
Imagine you’re watching your favorite Hollywood film, full of colorful characters and exciting stories. Now imagine being the voice behind those characters, breathing life into their emotions and bringing their tales to life. That’s the power of dubbing, and it’s part of the future of Cambodia’s film industry.
The golden era of brilliant voice actors who dubbed 80s Hong Kong Wuxia series into Khmer is now a thing of the past and audiences are cringing on the monotone voices and uninspired dubbing from the 2020s. Today, many actors have the opportunity to revolutionize the dubbing scene and make a mark on the cinematic landscape. With the right techniques and a passion for storytelling, anyone can become the voice that resonates with audiences, captivating them with every line.
Kongchak’s founder, Loy Te wants to improve the film industry in Cambodia. “One of the main challenges is fitting all the key information into the same time as other languages to achieve lip sync,” Loy observed. “From language to language conveying the same amount of information can take a lot less or a lot more time, that’s why translation is also such an important part of this process, you cannot translate word for word but you can translate the intentions and what is important.” Dubbing isn’t just about translating dialogue from one language to another. It’s an intricate art that requires precise timing, synchronization, and the ability to convey emotions through your voice alone. As a young actor, this is a chance to showcase your skills and immerse yourself in a world of limitless possibilities.
The selection process for dubbing projects is an open invitation to actors of all backgrounds. Whether you’re a seasoned performer or a fresh talent bursting with potential, the doors are wide open for you. It’s all about mastering the art of evoking emotions, transporting audiences to the highs of joy, the depths of sorrow, and everything in between – all through the power of your voice.
Dubbing goes beyond traditional acting roles; it opens doors to a whole new realm of creativity. It allows you to uncover unexplored dimensions of the filmmaking process. What makes dubbing truly remarkable is that it’s not about how you look or move, but rather the power of your voice. It’s about capturing the essence of characters through precise delivery, rhythmic expression, and emotional depth. Are you an old man with a rasp that adds wisdom to every word? Or perhaps a sweet granny whose voice exudes warmth and affection? Do people say you have a creepy voice? These are just a few examples of the unique voices we’re seeking. Dubbing gives you the opportunity to make an indelible impression on audiences, transcending language and cultural boundaries. Embrace this chance to shine and leave a lasting legacy through the magic of your voice.
Dubbing is an intricate process that goes beyond mere translation. It requires patience and skill to adapt dialogue and cultural references, creating a realistic experience for an international audience. For Kongchak Studios, it’s like reverse engineering, delving into the final dialogue to understand the reasoning behind specific word choices.
Cultural differences, not prevalent in Western languages and cultures, exist in languages like Korean and Japanese. Take the Khmer word “Bong” as an example. Its English translation can mean “older brother” or “older sister,” but it can also serve as a term of endearment towards a partner. These subtle nuances require skilled translators and dubbing professionals to strike the perfect balance between accurate translation and effective voice acting.
While some individuals may possess a natural affinity for voice acting, it is a skill that can be honed and refined through practice and experience. Aspiring actors, passionate storytellers, and those eager to explore the world of voice acting are all welcome.
