BeMultilingual Dubs Viral Animated Series Pilot Episode for Glitch Productions

As a multi-language audio provider, we recently worked on one of the biggest viral videos of 2023. The Amazing Digital Circus pilot episode, a new series from independent animation studio Glitch Productions, reached 100 million views in a little over a month and is set to quickly surpass 250 million views just a few months after release. One of the reasons for the huge success is that the video is dubbed in various languages, allowing the story to transcend geographic and cultural boundaries rather than being limited to English. And we were happy to play an important part in this endeavor. So, let’s take a look at the recent Glitch Production YouTube channel success in more detail and walk you through how our work contributed.

Glitch Productions YouTube Channel Experiences Huge Success After Releasing Multi-Lingual Pilot Episode

For those unaware, Glitch Productions is an independent animation studio looking to reinvent how animation studios fund themselves. By steering clear of traditional backing, Glitch Productions has created the types of animated series they want to make rather than being influenced by television studios or similar financial backers. As a result, the company has used YouTube as its platform and used ad revenue and merchandise sales to fund its ongoing series, Murder Drones (which has already been nominated for a Webby Award for Best Animation Video) and The Amazing Digital Circus. Both series have received widespread acclaim and millions of views. Still, it’s the latter show (The Amazing Digital Circus) that has gone stratospheric, with 2 million views received within 24 hours of the release of the pilot episode. The dark comedy follows the fortunes of a woman trapped in a digital world with five others while subjected to the whims of a wacky AI. Part of the success has been down to the fact that the show has been dubbed into several languages, meaning it’s not been limited by any geographic or cultural boundaries.

BeMultilingual Takes Care of German Dubbing for Viral YouTube Animated Series Pilot

As we have done for many leading YouTubers, we were asked to handle the dubbing for one of the studio’s most important markets: Germany. Our team went away and worked hard to create the perfect German dubbing for the pilot, and the team at Glitch Productions were thrilled with the finished product. Viewers were impressed, too, with comments on the video such as, “Hearing this in German is dope” and “the German dub is amazing.” Lastly, another user (@augustino7529) commented, “Thanks for the amazing German voiceover, the quality is insane!”

Our services helped secure Glitch Productions millions of German viewers across the globe, no doubt contributing to its runaway success. In fact, the company intelligently dubbed the characters in several languages, including French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, and many more, to deliver maximum viewership. Given that only 5% of the world’s population speaks English natively, opening up their online animated series to as many markets as possible was a brilliant move. While they had to invest in these YouTube dubbing services, the 225+ million YouTube video views (and counting) have shown that dubbing YouTube content into other languages often pays for itself several times over.
