New York, NY (November 14, 2007)–Award-winning editorial and post-production house Northern Lights has expanded into audio with the addition of Ted Gannon, a noted mixer, sound designer and composer.
“Our clients have been asking for audio services for some time now,” says Mark Littman, Northern Lights partner. “We felt it was the right time and right fit to do so with Ted. Similar to our philosophy with Mr. Wonderful, each additional aspect of a project that we can control allows us to add so much more overall value to the project as a whole.”
“Our company is driven by the collaboration of creative people, and we wanted someone with the skills and background needed for our diversity of projects,” adds David Gioiella, Northern Lights partner. “We’ve been hearing about Ted for years, and feel he’s a great match. By being selective with our talent and waiting for the right opportunities, we’ve been able to grow Northern Lights successfully into new areas, with each department–editing, graphics and visual effects and audio–integrating with and enhancing the other.”
Gannon arrives from Bionic Media where he put his mixing and sound design skills to good use on promos for Sci Fi, Comedy Central, USA Network, the various Nickelodeon networks, Food Network and History Channel. He wrote music for Battlestar Galatica promos for Sci Fi, as well as a new mini-series, Tin Man, a reworking of the classic Wizard of Oz story starring Richard Dreyfuss, Zooey Deschanel and Alan Cumming, while also scoring comedy films and independent features.
The new audio room and voiceover sound booth is equipped with Digidesign Pro Tools and a Command controller, and Apple Logic. Gannon is already working on a commercial campaign for Centrum, episodic promos for USA Network’s Law & Order and a game open for the NHL in conjunction with VFX/design company Mr. Wonderful.
