Film Dub

Film Dub


Clips from movies/YouTube are projected on to the stage, with the sound off. The players dub the voices.


Additional Tips for Playing

  • Listen.
  • When providing the voice for the person on screen watch their mouth at all times and match their mouth shape. If they stop moving their mouth stop speaking.
  • Give each other offers i.e an emotion in your voice. 
  • It’s great if you have microphones for the voices, but not essential.
