We are looking for a Subtitler to join our production team in Flower Mound, TX. Subtitlers are tasked with adapting scripts into MacCaption files.

Completed projects are then exported into different formats for DVD, Blu-ray, theatrical, and numerous online vendors with differing specs.
The core responsibilities of this position include:
- Generate subtitles for DVD, Blu-ray, theatrical, and online use.
