Addison, Texas / October 18th, 2021 - LazuArts Entertainment, LLC today announces the launch of its new dubbing studio and partnership with leading international and independent film distributor Well Go USA Entertainment.

LazuArts Entertainment works with creative content companies to transform their videogames, movies, TV shows and more with ADR and pre-lay recording, post-production mixing and mastering, and quality voice talent to engage their audiences in a whole new way. Under a new agreement, LazuArts will be providing various localization audio services for Well Go USA, a leading independent distributor of international genre films.

“We couldn't be more honored and excited to be collaborating with Well Go USA, a company we deeply admire for their taste and commitment to expanding the horizons of audiences in North America with some of the most exciting contemporary genre cinema from overseas,” says Brian Holder, LazuArts co-founder.

“The LazuArts team has this invaluable ability to take films to the next level while still maintaining the integrity of the story and the creative intent of the filmmakers,” said Chrissy Walker, Vice President of Marketing at Well Go USA. “We are beyond thrilled to team up with LazuArts going forward, and we can't wait for longtime fans of our films to experience the impact of their work in upcoming projects.”

As the first Black-owned dubbing studio, LazuArts represents a breakthrough for diversity and inclusion in the entertainment industry. “Our studio is committed to raising the bar in this area through recruitment, training, casting, and staffing in order to proactively cultivate new opportunities for underrepresented voice and engineering talent,” says Holder. “This is not just a positive step toward breaking down barriers in the industry, it translates into added value that clients and consumers increasingly demand.”

“There's a growing imperative in the entertainment industry to reflect the growing diversity of our audiences,” said LazuArts co-owner Nicholas Markgraf. “But it's not enough for underrepresented communities to see themselves on screen, they need to hear themselves. Brian and I are excited and committed to make that happen.”

LazuArts Entertainment also specializes in anime localization, with a team offering decades of experience and includes renowned lead voice director Charlie Campbell. Independent market studies by BrandEssence and Grand View Research project that the global anime industry will double in size by 2028 to $48 billion from $24 billion in 2020, which LazuArts expects will keep them very busy.
