Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

Does anyone know who this Matthew Sommer person is and if he has contact info? I of course did my due diligence during the research and writing of the article and tried. (Please do not keep badgering Ian Corlett, folks. It looks like you got whatever you were going to get out of it.) I sort of figu...

Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

Huh, re-reading the excerpt of the google groups article from Matthew Sommer, it appears that the term "Death Zone Vortex" was used in place of Dead Zone. So maybe this tape we are trying to track down is entitled "DBZ Death/Dead Zone Vortex" or something along those lines? Does anyone know who this...

Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

So I totally forgot about the promo made during BLT's run and lo and behold there is Dead Zone. https://i.postimg.cc/vmGrV8pf/vlcsnap-2020-08-18-17h31m24s434.png https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWbo4o2_lYU I'd assume they'd got a batch of films? I wonder if they planned/worked on any of the other D...

Sorry for double posting, but Ian responded to me, however, he doesn't seem to recall this dub. https://twitter.com/IanJames007/status/ ... 9921809408.

Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

Ian Corlett is on Twitter , and fairly regularly answers fan questions. If you have any questions about this production, feel free to ask him. He was in it as Goku, and he was one of the writers, and he would've known the producers, directors, etc. FWIW, the director was likely either Michael Donov...

Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

So where do we go from here? Do we have any leads we can start with, like someone at Funimation who might know something about this dub? Most of the personnel currently at Funimation that worked on DBZ weren’t around in 1996 Ian Corlett would probably be the most knowledgeable person that fans coul...

Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

. Although it seems strange that they'd randomly record the movie 3 dub in the middle of season 2's production. It’s also strange to run it in the middle of the Namek arc and yet they obviously did. Yeah, is there any sort of speculation or theories as to why they did that? Having it at the tail en...

Btw, on the Pioneer intro clip, is that music from Peter Berring? it doesn't sound like wasserman, but it sounds a bit like Berring Probably. It definitely seemed like it was produced before Funimation switched to Ocean Studios and Saban instead of BLT and Seagull Entertainment. It’s the same narra...

Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

My guess is they didn't think it fitted in well enough with their image for the brand with Ron Wasserman etc., and the cast wasn't Ian Corlett and Scott McNeil as Goku and Piccolo. One has to wonder what their "image" for the brand actually was from the get-go. Just a theory, but I think a level of...

@Robo4900 Once again, you've gone above and beyond the call of duty my friend, excellent work! :clap: Interesting, so this "Vendar" dub was actually done about 1.5-2 years before the Pioneer dub was recorded and released. So this was a reaaally early production for Funimation, maybe even taking plac...

@Robo4900 I don't suppose you could spell out a very basic timeline of events of Funi's early involvement with the franchise, could you? I've reread the article the OP posted a couple times and I think I am confusing myself as to when some of this stuff was done. :lol:

Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

It's nuts to think there's still unreleased stuff that's been lost for over twenty years. Just when you think you know every obscure thing in the franchise. It's also crazy to think how many times certain pieces of the franchise have been dubbed, redubbed, and/or given alternate re-takes, all of wh...

Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

Why they would utilize that particular bit of audio and not Nadoly's from the series itself is anyone's guess, but considering how the whole special is a mishmash of different voice casts, maybe it made it's way to the editor's hands somehow... The special was released back in 2000, before the seri...

Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

Wow, even more lost DB dub history that went right under our noses! I'm really surprised at how much Funimation tweaked and changed little things behind the scenes before putting DB on the air. I know many out there despise them to this day for how they've presented the franchise over the years, but...
