DuArt Film & Video is an American film and recording studio in New York City which recorded the English dub for Season 1 of World of Winx in association with 3Beep.

In 2014, Viacom chose DuArt as a lower-cost replacement for the Atlas Oceanic voices. DuArt's dub is the second English dub commissioned by Nickelodeon/Viacom, after Atlas Oceanic.

Overview

DuArt was founded as a film studio in 1922. They recently opened their doors for animation recording, with clients including Viacom, Pokémon International, 4Kids Entertainment, AnimeWho, Accel Animation, J. Kyle's Korner Entertainment and Mondo Media.

Involvement with Winx Club

Viacom relocated the Winx Club English voice cast 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.[1] The CGI-animated segments from seasons 5-6 and Atlas' Hollywood voice cast were deemed too expensive to continue using for season 7, so 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.

According to DuArt's clients page, Nick Jr. (Viacom's preschool channel) commissioned the dub.

Unlike the previous two seasons, which were mainly animated to match the Atlas Oceanic voices,[2] DuArt's voices were added in after the animation was finished.[1]
