This year has been filled with incredible growth, development, amazing projects and a big studio expansion! Looking back on it all, we have a great deal to be thankful for.
In early January, we moved into our new studio space. It took us almost two months to get fully up and running, and the studio turned out great. Feedback from clients visiting our facility has been resoundingly positive.
Later in January, we traveled to Sundance to watch two longform narrative projects Transported Audio sound edited and mixed, Playdates and Gentefied, premiere to the world! It was an awe-inspiring experience. Park City is such a charming town with lots of fun pockets to explore. We also got to meet talented people from all over the world similarly in town for the festival.
As new projects started rolling in at our studio, we had the great pleasure of working on videos for:
- The US Army
- Star Wars Battlefront
- Mass Effect
- Elder Scrolls
- Spike TV
- Wagner Brakes
- Avery Paper Products
In June, we upgraded our studio speakers to Genelecs, a huge quality jump from our previous JBL speakers. Mixing in our studio immediately sounded 1000x better.
By August, it became abundantly clear that our team needed to expand. Austin Chase came aboard as our new in-house Sound Editor and hopped aboard projects right away. His devotion to improving his craft and bright attitude have been a breath of fresh air, bringing so much more than just his sound expertise to our team.
The later part of the year brought some new areas of workflow expansion, including mixing VR experiences for Coca Cola and the US Army. These were so much fun to sound design and tag team with Marc Weber, our talented VR mixer.
Instead of the year winding down to a close, the projects just kept on coming! A sample of those we sound designed and mixed include:
- Over 30 videos for Star Wars Battlefront 2
- Numerous videos for Lawbreakers
- Battlefield 1
- Marvel games
- Promos for Netflix, FX network, Amazon Prime and Lionsgate
- Top Golf
- California Closets
- The Soul Train Awards
- Kaiser Permanente
- The Gates Foundation
- Ronald McDonald House
- Education Through Music
- A short film about Bruce Lee
We’d be remiss if we didn’t thank our additional sound designers and mixers who have been instrumental in keeping our quality bar high and hitting various tight deadlines. Kevin Senzaki, Richard Shapiro, Mitchell Lestner, Cody Flick, Paul Fonarev, Charles Moody, John Dion, Peter Bawiec and Joshua Johnson – you’ve all brought so much to our growing team and words cannot fully express how grateful we are for your continuing support.
Looking ahead, we have some very exciting things on the horizon in 2018. Austin recently moved into our first Sound Edit suite at the studio, where we’re going to treat the walls in his room soon. In our main mixing studio, we’re massively upgrading our Protools station to ensure it can handle the biggest, most intensive projects. We’re also re-tuning the monitors in this studio to make sure playback in the room sounds as perfect as possible.
Thank you for an all-around incredible year. We’d love your feedback on it as well – what can we do to improve? How can we make your projects sound even better? What are you looking for in a sound team? If you haven’t already, please come check out our studio and let us know what you think.
We can’t wait to build on everything with even more new people and projects in 2018!!
