DuArt has been involved with a number of films over its history, such as Dirty Dancing, The Cider House Rules and Forrest Gump, pioneering in a number of film making technologies. Founder Al Young built one of the earliest continuous 35-millimeter processing machines in 1927, DuArt processed the first film in Eastmancolor negative in 1950, and DuArt also worked with CBS on EVR consumer video-player-based special-motion film in 1966. In 1979, DuArt was presented with an Academy Award for Technical Achievement for their development of the Frame-Count cueing system. During the 1980s, the lab became an industry leader in Super-16mm blow-ups, enabling independent filmmakers the opportunity to compete in the theatrical marketplace with low-budgeted films. In 2000, owner and Chairman Irwin Young was awarded the Gordon E. Sawyer Award by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for technological contributions to the motion picture industry.
They recently opened their doors for anime dubbing, original animation, and commercials, with clients including 4Kids Entertainment, AnimeWho, Pokémon International, Accel Animation, J. Kyle's Korner Entertainment and Mondo Media. Their notable works include Pokémon (the eleventh season and all seasons afterward), Joe vs Joe and It's All Elementary (a new upcoming claymation television series created by J. Kyle Manzay).
Involvement with Winx Club
The Winx Club English voice cast was relocated to DuArt in 2014, replacing Atlas Oceanic's Hollywood-based voices, which recorded up through season 6. This was done as a cost-cutting and time-saving measure: at the time, Rainbow was undergoing a significant financial loss due to the box-office failure of its film Gladiators of Rome. The CGI-animated segments from seasons 5-6 and Atlas' Hollywood voice cast were deemed too expensive to continue using for season 7, so Rainbow and Viacom (the American company that co-owns Rainbow) chose DuArt's English cast as a lower-cost replacement. Conveniently, DuArt is located just minutes from the headquarters of Viacom.
