Closed Caption the Terminator Genisys Web Series Now!
On June 22, 2015 Paramount Pictures, in cooperation with three different YouTube channels, released a Terminator Genisys: The YouTube Chronicles web series on YouTube, without closed captions!
This means that fans of Terminator who are deaf, hard of hearing, have auditory processing disorder, have autism, or depend on captions to learn English as a second language cannot watch this web series! Just try to make sense out of the autocaptioning garbage - you cannot!
This web series was released to increase interest in the upcoming Terminator Genisys movie due out in theaters on July 1.
Tell Paramount Pictures and the producers of this web series, which can be found in three parts on three different YouTube channels (Machinima, Tobuscus, and IISuperwomanII), to immediately closed caption the series! It is unacceptable for a major movie studio to make a companion web series and neglect closed captioning!
Why is it so important to tell Paramount Pictures this? It is important because this web series is the first one known to be associated with a movie! What if more web series are developed by other movie studios? What if Disney makes a Star Wars web series to promote the upcoming Star Wars movie and the web series is not captioned?
