In the Turkish media production sector, there are certain studios that perform movies, films and TV series dubbing. In these studios, dubbing artists are voiced for the characters they speak in bulk or individually. The sound cast is created first of the project to be dubbed whether it is a film, documentary or a TV series etc. The process starts by designating which voice will speak which character. Later, dubbing artists are invited to the studio by giving them an appointment. The real acting is the process where the talents start the acting by voicing the character. It’s used to talk about gestures, intonations and more, voicing the character as if they are the character.
