Bad Words Lab’s recording studio teams up with Animation Brewery to help save lives.

By |October 13th, 2016|

Animation Brewery and Bad Words Lab’s recording studio got together to help spread the good word about Biosand filters.

Click here to check it out. Best experience is on mobile, as these devices are more prominent in developing countries.

If you haven’t heard of them, Biosand filters are a wonderful invention that can help the lives of not millions, but HUNDREDS of millions. These many people are without clean drinking water or sanitation, and as a result, countless lives are lost to diseases.

We had the task of bringing a voice to their animation, in several languages and accents. To name a few: English and French in an African accent, as well as South East Asian, to even Creole, where a formal spelling of certain words […]

Before Sex Kills: A Candid Look at Newly-Funded Kickstarter Animated Series, Urbance, After Discussion with It’s Creators

By |November 6th, 2014|

Want to know more about Urbance, an upcoming animated series from Montreal animation studio, Steambot? Well lucky for you, Helene Rousse from and I had the chance to sit down and talk with the new series’ creators. This was a great day for us here at Bad Words Lab. We love looking at animated series that promise to change the way people think. And this was certainly exceptional.


With less than 48 hours to go on their Kickstarter campaign, Helene Rousse and I sit down with Joel and Sébastien from Steambot Animation Studios to discuss their “just now”-funded campaign for Urbance. My excitement to learn more about their upcoming creation is compounded by the excitement supercharged in their office. […]

The Rosetta Stone: Translation before Localisation

By |October 6th, 2014|

As an agency that specializes in translation, localisation, and casting for everything from feature films, TV, video games and animations, its nice to enjoy a few perks; I mean, seriously, who else can attend Gamescom in Germany and write it off as a business expense?

Gregg and I had an absolute blast with people from all around the world, but before we dove into everything GDC and Gamescom, we spent some time in London where, to our great surprise, we got to see something fantastic and totally relevant to our world.

We headed to the British Museum. It’s one of the most fascinating places we’ve ever explored and mostly because we saw in real life things we’ve only encountered in games. […]

Gamescom 2014

By |September 2nd, 2014|

A few weeks ago, Gregg and I attended Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. To say we had a blast would be a bit of an understatement… We not only met other industry professionals, but we finally met some of our customers face-to-face – some we’d only ever skyped with – and hung out with the fans.

Visiting the various pavilions truly opened our eyes to how far and wide this industry stretches. We were able to interact with colleagues from every corner of the globe and learned more about how their work fits into the game-creation process. As a translation, localization and culturalization company, we truly value the time we get to spend with people from cultures outside of our own […]
