Czech stars in battle over dubbing conditions: report

Around 150 Czech film stars and dubbing professions are engaged in a battle over pay and conditions with studios which use them. The dubbers created an agency to represent them and battle against pressure from studios for faster work for the same pay, according to a report in Wednesday’s Mladá fronta Dnes. Some say they are asked to do four or five times as much work in the same time as before. The agency’s terms have been cold shouldered by some major employers which have reportedly said they can find replacements for the well known voices.
