Say, What?

How many times have you been browsing social media with the volume off and a video plays with subtitles? How many times have those subtitles been accurate? My guess is not as accurate as it should be.

So how can you absolve yourself of the embarrassment of saying Benedict Couple Beer Batch...instead of Benedict Cumberbatch.

One of our newest services here at Gig Bag is Subtitling.

Subtitling may not be as easy as you'd originally think. There are a dozen different subtitle types used for different purposes. EffecTV (formerly Comcast Spotlight) only accepts Scenarist Closed Captions (.scc) filetypes embedded in a Quicktime MOV format. Meanwhile Social Media can accept SubRip Subtitles (.srt) but prefer Web Video Text Tracks (.vvt) as a sidecar file. Or what if you wanted to have subtitles in a different language than the one your actors are speaking in?

So no matter what your videos destination, the language (or languages) you want, Gig Bag Media can provide you and your video with the correct subtitling to make sure your video says what it intended to say!
