July Update - Sausage Scrutinizers Wanted

Posted by Robert J Woodhead (Creator)

Dear Backers,

We are happy to report that preproduction is proceeding at a steady pace. The main episode translations (english, japanese, and japanese caption-style) have passed through all of our internal reviews, and other translations such as the japanese commentaries are at various stages in the pipeline.

But no matter how many times we check the subtitles, there's always a chance that we'll miss something -- either an obvious mistake or a potential improvement. So it's always a good idea to run the final product past some fresh eyeballs before locking it down.

If you think you have what it takes to sniff out mistakes in the output of the AnimEigo Subtitle Sausage Factory, send us an email at crowdfunding@animeigo.com. We need 4-6 volunteers - particularly people with deep knowledge of relevant topics (such as music, cars, weapons, animation production, etc.). We'd also like at least one proofreader with non-standard color vision, and another who is deaf or hearing-impaired.

Before you do, however, consider the pros and cons:

Pros

  • Get to see things ahead of everyone else.
  • Get a production credit on the disc.

Cons

  • May have to watch something one time more than you really wanted to.
  • Faith in competence of AnimEigo staff will almost certainly be shattered.

Please note that you will have to sign a standard non-disclosure agreement in order to be a proofreader.

Best,

Robert & Natsumi

      Gentlepeople,

      We are *literally* overwhelmed by the number of volunteers - about 80 so far! We'll try and whittle them down to a core team over the weekend.

      Hi Robert,

      I’d be happy to do some QC work for you. I don’t have any specialist knowledge, BUT I do have two things that will help:

      1) I have Autism, so notice problems in subtitling really well (almost to a point of craziness)!, and

      2) I’ve done QC and subtitle-checking for two Jess Franco films released on UK DVD, as well. My name even ended-up in the end-credits.

      Let me know, if I can be of assistance. (I’m UK based though, if that makes a difference.)

      Man I can't get enough of these old art styles. 80s and 90s are the best!

      I sent an e-mail to offer my aid. Fingers crossed!

      I'd love to offer some aid (I fit a lot of those requirements), and would love to help, but won't have anywhere near enough free time to actually contribute within the next 2 months...
