Back to the Future of Subtitling

Subtitles, Profuz, Academy Awards, Kamen Ferdinandov


Subtitles are a hugely important topic, recently hitting the radar thanks to multi Oscar award-winning South Korean black comedy thriller Parasite making history by winning best picture, a feat that no other subtitled film has achieved in the 92-year history of the Academy Awards. The film also won Oscars for Best Director, International Feature and Original Screenplay
Director Bong Joon-ho used his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes to champion subtitles and encouraged audiences not to be put off by international films. He said once audiences “overcome the one-inch-tall barrier of subtitles” they will be introduced to so many amazing films, further noting that we use only one language: “the cinema."
This outlook reflects  the mindset of Profuz Digital’s CTO  Kamen Ferdinandov, an inspiring creator who also believes in opening audiences up to a whole new world. By creating a subtitling application to help surpass language barriers, he hopes to make subtitling more widely accessible and user friendly.
From the very beginning, Kamen wanted to make a platform available to everyone at every level. This meant it had to be equipped with familiar text-editing application tools. 
He set out to make the subtitling software-only platform SubtitleNEXT to achieve just this.
