Redubbing 'Shrek'.
December 15, 2001 4:18 AM   Subscribe

Redubbing 'Shrek'. The DVD will feature a new technology that lets you overdub 12 scenes featuring Shrek, Donkey, Princess Fiona and other characters from the hit summer movie. The Shrek's ReVoice technology will even sync your voice so that it matches the lip movements of the characters as they speak in the film.

But can you make them swear at each other?

Here's a link to the producers of the product behind it. I wouldn't mind a copy of this product when it comes out.

As to whether you can swear with it, someone here must have this thing, its been out over a month.

I read an article on this a few days ago and they claimed the dubbing and synch only works if you read the dialog of the movie. Be creative, spot the words that rhyme with curses and replace them.

What do they mean 'will feature'? This DVD is already out in the shops. At least it is over here. With the overdub technology.

It only just occured to me that with a villain named Farquaad you don't even need the dubbing to get a laugh out of it. Probably the best character's name since Mr. Wanker in Mork and Mindy.

Yeah, the DVD has been on the shelves for a while, and the overdub is great. Hell of a lot of fun, even for 20-year old college students who were not drunk at the time.

The syncing works great. So long as you're actually trying to match rhythm of the original speech, it's basically seamless. Except for the poor soul who has to try to imitate John Lithgow. He's difficult.

You are forgetting Mr. McFeely from Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, of course.
