Burbank, CA (May 22, 2009)–Chace Audio recently completed post work on Summit Entertainment’s action comedy, Next Day Air, the feature directorial debut of music video director Benny Boom.
Producer Scott Aronson of Melee Entertainment and post supervisor J.M. Logan found Chace Audio suited for their needs and budget to post the film’s sound. The mix took place in Chace’s recently remodeled THX-certified dub stage, the Rick Chace Theatre, which features a Harrison Series 12 mixing console.
In order to incorporate as much production dialog as possible, dialog re-recording mixer James Young salvaged most of the original material to minimize the use of ADR. Re-recording mixer and sound supervisor Chris Reynolds, Emmy Award-winning Foley artist Monique Reymond, working with Foley recordist Tom Balazs at Chace’s 600 sq. ft. Foley stage, plus editor Michael Ferdie, Emmy Award-winning dialog editor Tom Harris and ADR mixer Nick Beljic rounded out the Chace Audio team.
“I loved working with Chace Audio,” Aronson adds. “The mix sounds like I spent three times as much and, most important to me, the people were all talented, professional and fun to hang with.”
Post Supervisor Logan was thrilled with the result, “Chace Audio is one of the most solid sound houses I’ve ever worked with,” he says, “Their professionalism, flexibility with our budget, and dedication to our project was second only to their superior work. I’m looking forward to working with them again.”
Next Day Air, which stars Donald Faison, Mike Epps, Wood Harris, Mos Def and Debbie Allen, was released May 8.
