topic icon Captions for Tony Palmer Bird on a Wire Leonard Cohen film

We have been creating new captions for Leonard Cohen rockumentary Bird on a Wire from award-winning director Tony Palmer.  "Bird on a Wire" follows the Canadian singer and songwriter Leonard Cohen on his 1972 European and Israeli tour. Long lost 16mm prints were restored for this release, not seen since 1972. The film will soon be re-released on streaming platforms with our new captions.

Considerable technical problems plagued Cohen throughout the tour and the film shows backstage and on stage arguments with fans demanding money back when some events ended early due to audio problems.

The captions files were delivered in a format that can be used as subtitles on DVD or Blu-ray and also used on streaming platforms like YouTube, Nexflix, Vimeo and Amazon.

If you need captioning for your film whether for International film festivals, for online distribution or just to improve your ranking on Google search then please get in touch with us for a quote. We like to see the completed content to quote for captions, as the amount of dialogue and quality of spoken word varies a lot from film to film.
