Hello everybody,

I've got a bit of a problem. For my dissertation I'm doing a comparative study of the subtitles for the movie Shrek and my own. I'm making new ones, because the old ones are in Dutch. I'd like to state that we need Flemish subtitles in order to create the 'same effect'. Now the problem arises: how do I get my hands on a copy of the original subtitles? Should it realy come down to me copying them down on a sheet? Or is there a way to figure out who wrote the original set and get my hands on those?
By the way, if it is of any help, it's a Universal Pictures' film.

Have a wonderful evening and thanks in advance,
Peter Frederix
