We are CODA, The Coalition of Dubbing Actors!
Collectively, we have spent decades creating quality voice acting to localize amazing foreign projects so they can be experienced and enjoyed by audiences across the world. Demand for foreign language dubbing is at an all-time high. With more and more content coming into this booming industry, the fan base has expanded and changed, and the large community of professional dubbing voice actors it has created has never been more committed to high quality work.
All actors deserve fair pay and benefits as well as the transparency necessary to make the best choices for their careers. As this industry continues to change and grow, we feel it is important that we have a meaningful voice in shaping it. (Pun intended!) CODA was created for ALL actors so that we can actively participate in our industry. Our goals are to build a community, increase open communication among actors, provide actor-led industry education, and change the culture and impression of dubbing work. We want to expand union coverage and create a contract that will benefit voice actors and our wonderful producers as well. We believe that a formal collective bargaining process, just like the one used by professional actors in parallel industries, is the best way to ensure that the amazing dubbing industry we’ve come to love and respect continues to flourish and produce high quality content.
Actors supporting actors is the core of what we’re doing.
