Wisting (2019) Subtitles
Wisting will premiere on December 18. Watch a trailer below; no English subtitles, but it's all about the chilly mood and atmosphere. And there's nothing like a Nordic crime show to warm up cold December evenings where I live in Texas (?!), which I mention because Texas gets a shout-out in the trailer.
Wisting (2019) subtitles
All programs listed here are shown in their original language with English subtitles, except where noted. The trailers below, which may or may not have English subtitles, might not be suitable for all audiences; viewer discretion is advised.
I found it really interesting that so much thought goes into subtitles. One thing that drives me crazy is when the background changes from dark to light and the white subtitles become unreadable. Hopefully someone will come up with a solution to that soon. Maybe Netflix already has.
We also figured that this would be the perfect time to roll out a new technical enhancement to the site: "soft" English subtitles. We happen to think that the typical scene is significantly improved if one can figure out what the characters are saying, so we've been making a concerted effort to provide more edits of non-English scenes with subtitles for our English-speaking viewers. And the best kind of subtitles we can provide is "soft" subtitles, since you can choose whether you want to see them or not.
The new clips in this feature are among the first on the site to include soft subs. You'll recognize them by the new "CC off" widget that will appear in the video player whenever soft subs are available. For now, until we can sort out one last technical hurdle, you'll just need to activate the subtitles explicitly by clicking that widget when it appears and switching it to "English."
In the meantime, we'll continue to post plenty of non-English scenes with "hard" subtitles, or none at all, as determined by availability and editing constraints. But our goal is to make soft subs increasingly common from here on out (and we're asking our contributors to help us out with this as best they can). Enjoy!
Well-written and acted, Wisting is a mixture of subtitles and English. Before the FBI arrives, and when the Norwegians talk to each other, expect subtitles. Larvik is a town of 45,000, not ready for the media annoyances created by the man known as The Highway Killer. Nor are they prepared for the methods of the FBI.
Ole Sondegard of Good Company Films is the man behind both the British and Swedish version of Wallander, the Millennium trilogy and the Beck series. Recording will begin in late autumn of 2017, and the character of William Wisting has yet to be cast. The finished series will have English subtitles, and will be sold internationally. Lier Horst is already an internationally bestselling author. The Wisting series has been sold to 25 countries, and has sold over 1 million copies in Norway alone. 041b061a72
