Learn fansubbing–the process of adding subtitles to Japanese animation. Topics covered: history and development of American fansubbing, tools and methodology, global culture and media theories, legal and ethical debates. Participants will work in teams (“fansub groups”) to subtitle a short animation, working on translation, timing, typesetting, encoding, and other development tasks. Previous exposure to Japanese language is recommended but not required. The fansubbing tools that we will be using are built for the Win32 platform. Although not required, a laptop that runs Windows applications is highly recommended for practice in class.
