Burbank, CA (February 11, 2009)–Warner Bros. Post Production Services has completed construction of two new facilities–ADR 2 and Re-Recording Stage 12–to accommodate the growing business and changing workflows, according to Kim Waugh, senior vice president, post production services, Warner Bros. Studio Facilities.
ADR 2 will be used primarily for automated dialogue replacement on television projects, while Stage 12 will service the feature film community. “We are continually looking for new ways in which to better serve our clients and the post community, and one of those ways is to improve upon and expand our facilities,” said Waugh. “ADR 2 and Stage 12 not only increase the options our clients have when working with our team of post production sound talent, but because of them, we are able to accommodate and respond to changing workflows and schedules in our industry.”
A feature of ADR 2 is its talent green room adjacent to the recording environment.
Stage 12 features a hybrid of traditional motion picture technology and workstation mixing. AMS Neve DFC and Digidesign ICON control surfaces co-exist for flexibility in re-recording. The Stage also features a console frame design, which allows the mixing desk to be reconfigured and the console control surfaces to be rearranged to accommodate different needs or mixing preferences.
ADR 2 and Stage 12 are the first of several new WBPPS facility upgrades. In spring 2009, the Studio will unveil its newest post production sound facility, which is currently under construction. The last advancements occurred in 2005, when WBPPS opened a new 52,000-sq.-ft. building, which includes 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.
