Film and Television Production Language Coaching and Consulting.
ABC Languages has over 10 years of experience with film and television production crews in and around New York. We have provided in-studio coaching for actors who need to learn lines, scenes or entire parts in foreign languages, including esoteric languages. We have translated portions of scripts, written in English, into a foreign language as necessary. And we have provided actors with intensive training in foreign languages and accents. We have also provided cross-cultural consulting to ensure that what appears on screen (costumes, traditions or behaviors) is culturally accurate. Our experts understand that authenticity is of the essence and we are available to ensure that actors feel confident and that the highest quality production standards are maintained.
