Westlake Village, CA (March 19, 2010)–GC Pro supplied a package of audio equipment for video post house Blueroom’s new ADR and Foley recording and editing services.
The new control rooms and recording spaces are located at the Chaplin Theater on the Raleigh Studios lot in Hollywood and at Blueroom’s new Manhattan Beach location. Key purchases included fully loaded Digidesign Pro Tools HD systems; Yamaha 02R96 mixing consoles; microphones from various brands including Shure, Sennheiser and Neumann; and Genelec active monitoring systems.
Blueroom, with a video post production facility with locations in Hollywood and Manhattan Beach, CA and a satellite facility in Louisiana, is doing work for ABC’s Castle and Private Practice series, as well as the upcoming Iron Man 2 and additional Marvel Entertainment film features, among many other projects.
“GC Pro was instrumental in helping us add audio services to the company in an efficient and cost-effective manner,” says Mike Patterson, audio mixer at Blueroom. Patterson cites the assistance given by GC Pro’s Richard Ash and Dan Scalpone.
“They helped us make some of the big-ticket decisions such as consoles and recording systems, and they were extremely knowledgeable about how systems work, as well as helping us adapt them to fit our needs,” he said.
He also noted that, in addition to helping research a synchronization solution for the 43-inch and 60-inch video displays, as well as the large projection screen at the Hollywood facility (establishing the appropriate frame-delay value for each type of screen), GC Pro also sourced the product, despite it not being in GC Pro’s standard inventory. Blueroom has also begun construction on their new mix room, housing a Digidesign ICON Digital Console, to be completed this spring. This facility will add television, trailer and pre-dubbing work to Blueroom’s services.
