SXSW Gaming

Funimation: World of Dubbing | Thursday, March 17 | 6:30 – 7:15pm | Austin Convention Center , Ballroom C, 531 E 4th St

Funimation famously releases the most broadcast dubs in the United States and Canada, and does so in record time. Follow the process of how a broadcast dub is born; from receiving Japanese materials, to translation, in house voice acting, producing, editing, and releasing a broadcast dub, the fascinating process has to run like a finely tuned machine.

Hosts: Josh Kocurek (Exec. Producer of Dubbletalk), Justin Cook (Dir. of Production), Justin Rojas (Host of Dubbletalk), Lauren Moore (Host of Dubbletalk), Zach Bolton (Dir/Producer)

Dubbletalk LIVE! | Saturday, March 19 | 1:15 – 2:00pm  | Twitch MainStage – Austin Convention Center , Exhibit Halls 1 & 2, 531 E 4th St

It’s loud. It’s live. It’s anime. Join hosts Justin Rojas, Lauren Moore, and Chad James as they take Funimation’s weekly live show, Dubbletalk, out of the studio and over to the live audience of’s Mainstage.  Catch it in person, or on Twitch, as the crew talks about one of the latest anime movies to hit theaters: Mamoru Hosoda’s The Boy and the Beast.

See you there!
