Burbank,CA (September 2, 2005)–Warner Bros. Studios Post Production Sound Department has announced that, this winter, it will open “the world’s most technologically advanced Post Production facility” at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, featuring a uniquely designed, client-focused work environment.
Three years in development, planning and construction, the 52,000-square-foot Mission-style post production building will include two feature re-recording stages, an ADR stage with a spacious talent green room, 12 sound editorial/design suites and 12 DVD audio mastering suites, all featuring Pro Tools HD.
“This remarkable new building will offer an ultra-modern atmosphere staffed by the most sought-after talent in the industry,” said Kim Waugh, vice president, post production services, Warner Bros. Studio Facilities. “The future-of-the-art facility is designed to foster excellence in creativity with an emphasis on superior creature comforts and exceptional client services.”
The two large feature re-recording stages will be equipped with the latest AMS Neve DFC Gemini consoles. It is the first major motion picture re-recording facility to offer fully automated digital mixing desks that can support up to 1,000 channel paths, capable of 24 bit/96 kHz operation. In addition, six soundproof editorial rooms on each stage are fully networked to allow editors seamless support within the mixing environment.
In keeping with Warner Bros. Studio Facilities’ commitment to providing a relaxed and intimate atmosphere for its clients, each re-recording stage will include a luxurious bathroom and shower, a comfortable filmmaker’s lounge complete with a fully equipped kitchen and an extensive catering menu available upon request and an outdoor patio with a quaint Spanish-style fountain and fireplace. Clients will also have access to the new Warner Bros. Post Production personal concierge service, the first of its kind in the industry.
